Wanlov and M3nsa are both Ghanaian rappers, singers and composers who have taken the world by storm. They have shared the stage with Snoop Dogg, Sway, Irie Maffia and the Gorillaz -to name a few! I became a massive fan from the moment I saw their work! Little did I know that one day they would become good friends of mine.
It all started during the Summer of 2010 when my friend Jaya and I first discovered Wanlov. It began when we were randomly laughing at the size of a shoe in this video featuring a few Ghanaian artists. Then we became obsessed with the song. To the point that we played the video on repeat when getting ready to go out! It's one of those songs that just make you giggle and go all bubbley! I even had it as my alarm tone haha! Anyway, after repeating the video about 199 times, we THEN decided to pay more attention to each individual rapper who features on the song. When we searched Wanlov we were blown away by his talent! We also found it bizarre that he chooses never to wear shoes, even in the snow! He is constantly barefooted!
Whilst searching further we came across the trailer for 'Coz Ov Moni', Ghana's first ever pidgin rap musical by Wanlov and M3nsa (this is how we found out about M3nsa)! We noticed it was premiering in London so we bought tickets
. . . and the rest is history!!!!!
M3nsa and I quite enjoy arguing. We argue from the moment I step into the building, to the moment I leave. He calls me 'Miss Defensive' but it's only because I am just as good at arguing back as he is...we are too alike. So perhaps I should start calling him Mr.Defensive :-P
They have taught me a lot about my culture as I am half Ghanaian but am yet to visit Ghana! I hopefully will this year because it is a BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY from what I have heard/seen!
