The chemistry between the rap and singing sections of the song does a good job of getting the message across.
In an interview with Showbiz, Eckow said he started music at the age of 13 as a lead singer of a youth singing group, performing at events and other church seminars.
He decided to go solo when he entered Koforidua Secondary Technical School, where he released his first single titled, Yensom Nyame (meaning let’s worship God) .
He entered mainstream music in 2015 releasing two singles, Odo Yewu, and Sokoo which was a hit among students in the various universities.
Eckow told Showbiz that combining music and school has not been an easy task, “there have been occasions where I have regretted pursuing music while in school.
“ They all require dedication especially when you want to succeed in both. However, I see my talent as a gift from God so I am ready to face any challenges,” he said.
