Cobhams Asuquo and Sizzy Benjamin cover Runtown’s “Mad Over You”

Taking the affecting lyrics to its sultry heights

Cobhams Asuquo’s “Mad Over You” cover strips away the memorable highlife guitar riffs, but the electric guitar licks more than make up for it. Sizzy Benjamin performs the live set, complete with drums, tambourine rattles, percussion and backup singers. His somber take on Runtown’s lyrics are more affecting as he drags vowels and places emphasis on particularly affectionate lines; “I Dey Mad Over You You You You You”. Though it’s more a emotional than a dancehall number, you can still get your groove on to the funk baseline.
