Yes! finally a video to one of our favorite bangers off the M.anifest album called "Immigrant Chronicles: Coming To America". The audio was produced by G Mo Beats.

"Blue (Chale What Dey Happen?)" Pay homage to the nascent Hip Hop / Hiplife scene in Accra, Ghana in the 90s and 2000s. He filmed this in Saltpond, Central region of Ghana

 

 

Directed by WA Productions/LOVECINÉ FILMS. Edited by LOVECINÉ FILMS.

It tells a story of longing and nostalgia inspired by living away from home. The video shows M.anifest in soliloquy whiles his mind travels to many childhood memories that remind him of home. From longing for kelewele, beans, gari (foods readily available on the streets of Accra) to girls shaking their "wele," "Blue" shows a man journeying through time, torn between melancholy and fond remembrance. 

"Blue" (Chale what dey happen) is also a throwback to M.anifest's adolescent years but perhaps more importantly a historical document of the cultural shifts that hiplife/ rap spawned in the 90s. In the 3rd verse you hear and see images that serve as a reflection on the beginnings of a new wave of contemporary Ghanaian pop/hiplife music. Look for the photo image drop of Rab Bakari + Reggie Rockstone
