Nonso Amadi and Eugy are both coming of age at a time where artists are revered for output rather than mere hits. As online artists profiles and portfolios continue to increase with every new upload, it should be said that Ghanian producer-artist, Eugy is the one you go to for more heady vibes; as he’s got his catalog full of Dancehall tunes. While Nigerian producer-artist, Nonso, the one you go to for the complex emotional stories and tinges of melancholy. Nonetheless, both gravitate towards good Afropop, an act they solidify into craft on their new collaboration, “Kwasia”
When Nonso takes the first verse, hook and chorus, his side of the song moves at a slower pace to Eugy’s who raps-sings the second verse. The two sing heartbreaking lyrics in English and Twi, encapsulating the experience of pain from a dishonest relationship and the quest for freedom and joy. “Kwasia” demonstrates how easy Nonso and Eugy can partner on a track. ‘Kwasia’ means “fool” in ‘Twi’, it’s a 3 minutes piece that struggles to find comfort or consolation in a time of great distress or sadness after a lover cheats.
