Ever since Stonebwoy dropped his 5th dimension album, and one of the songs that has really won the hearts of most music lovers and fans of the musician is ”Manodzi.”
Local and foreign musicians are represented on the 17-track album, including British rapper Stormzy, Grammy-winning African singer Angelique Kidjo, Davido, a legendary Nigerian Afrobeats singer, South African DJ Maphorisa, and Jamaican reggae rapper Shaggy, among others.
African musician Angelique Kidjo, a double Grammy Award winner, is featured in the album track “Manodzi,” which ranks number 17.
The singer revealed that Dentaa Amoateng was responsible for making it feasible for the iconic African songstress to be included on the song in an appearance on Citi 97.3 FM’s Breakfast Show.
“I had already wanted to feature her (Angelique Kidjo) but I came into contact with her through Dentaa. There was a program here and Dentaa brought her, so immediately I saw her. I tapped Dentaa and told her I wanted to feature her [Angelique Kidjoe] then she linked her to me.”
He further explained, “When I discussed the collaboration with her (Angelique Kidjo), she never complained. When she went back, she sent me her verse and that was how the song was done.”
