Pheelz Tells Apple Music About His ‘Pheelz Good’ EP


‘Pheelz Good’ is three different feelings. If you check the artwork that I designed for it, you can see three masks. The first mask is The Loverboy – that’s what I call him – that’s where you have the loverboy feelings, where you have songs like “Stand By You;” there’s a song called “Pheelz Like Summer” on the project as well, that’s for the loverboy.

There’s The Bad Guy mask as well, in the middle. That’s why you have songs like “Finesse” and “Ballin’.” There’s a song on the EP called “Pablo Escobar” as well. That’s for the Bad Guy era of the EP. Then there’s another guy called The Gbedu Guy, on the far right of the artwork. That’s where you have songs like “Electricity,” there’s a song on the EP called “Ewele,” and there’s a song called “Emi Laye Mi.” Those are like the gbedu jams, and that’s why there’s The Gbedu Guy with the gbedu mask. When you see there artwork, you understand the three different feelings on the EP.

Pheelz Tells Apple Music About Taking Centre Stage As An Artist

First off, it’s a lot more flying! A lot more traveling around. I mean it’s amazing man, I love it on this side of the playing field where I can fully create music just me – being the producer, and being the artist – be in the genre and just craft a sound that’s 100% authentically Pheelz. I love producing as well but now I have the freedom to really create what I want to create, and the art that I truly believe in.

Pheelz Tells Apple Music About His Album Plans

Ehiz: I’m guessing ‘Pheelz Good’ the EP, beginning of the year… so sometime this year or maybe next year we’ll have a full album, how about that?

Pheelz: I’m almost done with that one already! I’m ready.
I’m almost done with the project, I swear down man. I’ve got bare songs already.

Ehiz: Ok, so when will that come out? Do you think it is gonna come anytime soon?

Pheelz: Yeah I think before the end of the year. I think I’m gonna make that happen for sure.

Israel Maweta breaks 7-years’ silence with new song “I No Go Blame You”



Israel Maweta breaks 7-years' silence with new song “I No Go Blame You”

Celebrated Ghanaian Musician/Producer, Israel Maweta touches on a very uncommon topic many fear to openly discuss. In recent times with many ladies going into liposuction and body shaming others for not having flat tummies, one can imagine how challenging and difficult it is with women, especially (nursing) mothers who have undergone varied body transformations due to child birth(s) or other health conditions.

Stream Song on Digital Stores here:

Liposuction as many women would opt for it as a choice, on the other hand however, not many women even if capable and having the required finance or resources can go through it due to anxiety or fear. On this premise, Israel Maweta flips the script to rather appreciate women who have developed big protruding bellies and stretched marks as a result of creating family or health conditions. He drops a song around this topic to eulogize women especially mothers, wives and on the large, the feminine populace for that matter, hence the title “I No Go Blame You”.

“I No Go Blame You”, executively produced by Elorm Beenie was created, mixed and mastered by Accra-based Ghanaian Producer, CaskeysOnit.

The song is a groovy urbanized Afrobeats production with a touch of Amapiano and choral influence; a multiplicity of indigenous African ensembles that fits into every playlist with clean resonating lyrics. It’s a song that can play on both radio, television, online and outdoor events. A good song that fits weddings too.

He is a Veteran African Traditional Musician who straddles through varied African sounds spanning a career over 2 decades. He has explored different genres over the period from Afrobeats, Borborbor, Agbadza, Kinka, Gospel, Reggae, Appellations (Spoken Word), Zibo, Asafo Music, Zigi, just to name a few.

Israel holds a very enviable catalogue with his career which counts at least 20 Albums. As an Evangelist if The Gospel, he is more aligned with the Christian faith but steps beyond the religious boundaries to exploit his music talent across varied circles within the African Traditional Music he is also equally identified with.

His latest song “I No Go Blame You” is a comeback song after his almost 7-year hiatus with song releases: the song is a lead single to many other singles die for release from his stable this year 2023.
