The success stories of artistes like Sarkodie, EL, D Black and many others have inspired many young folks to the Hip hop/rap scene and one such artiste is Yaw Berk.
Although the road has been quite rough for the graduate of the Takoradi Technical University and he hopes things get better with his latest release, Independent Lady.
In an era where it appears to be the norm for some women to depend on 'Sugar Daddies' for their needs, Yaw Berk’s new song praises women who work hard to take care of themselves.
Independent Lady, a slow tempo Afrobeats song, applauds ambitious women who stay true to themselves. Yaw Berk promises to love his independent lady and assures her of his unflinching love and support.
The song throws you back to American singer, Ne-Yo's Miss Independent track that also celebrates boss chick women.
Produced by Steaman, the song is the first single for the year from the MTN Hitmaker Season 7 contestant and his delivery is appreciable for an upcoming artiste.
Independent Lady is timely and should inspire young women to strive to make it on their own without depending on men.
He told Graphic Showbiz the quest for many young artistes like himself to reach the limelight has been thwarted by frustrations and the widely held perception that, “you are here to join the noise- makers”.
“It hasn’t been an easy journey. It’s been difficult with a lot of setbacks but I hope to launch a career that many will be pleased with,” he added.
Real name, Randy Amoah, Yaw Berk has done collaborations with Kofi Kinaata and Pappy Kojo and hopes to champion his native Bono language.
