Gift of God, is an album where I am going to have a couple of collaborations. I have links with Cardi b , Meek mill , Beyoncé likewise Jay z , and I hope things work out fast so I can have them on my album. I am ready for the international market now , I was doing local content because I stood by the term “dance ah yard , before you dance abroad”.
Burna boy and Davido won’t be part of the album since I have already worked with them , I am trying to work things out with Nigerians artistes like Bella shmurda , joe boy and wizkid .”Daddy lumba is one of the legends I respect a lot , I will be honored to have him on my album” He said. He already has an upcoming project with sarkodie , and he is trying to get stonebwoy , Samini on his album.

This a Job well done, and a plus to Ghana music and Africa in general.
