Ghanaian Dancehall artiste, Theophilus Nii Arday Otoo, widely recognised as “Epixode” has featured his mother on his latest single dubbed, “Dear Mama” off his current “3nity” album.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, he told Andy Dosty that he wrote the song at the lowest point in his life where all he was focused on was bettering his mother’s life.
He disclosed that his mom was a musician hence, as a kid, he adopted the reggae genre by listening, voluntarily or not, to the reggae songs she played for him.
“I have my mom on my new album. I took her to the studios and gave her sixteen bars. The title is ‘Dear Mama’. When I wrote that song, I was in a poor state…” he mentioned.
“She’s a twin and they both sing. Anytime they come back they come with reggae and country music. They tell you this is a bob Marley’s kaya album you have to listen. My mom has always been a reggae fan…” he added.
Epixode further revealed his mom criticized his songs if she feels they aren’t good. He said “She tells me if she doesn’t like my music so I work on them…” he said on Daybreak Hitz, Friday.
