Dedebah releases ‘Have Fun With it’



Hip-hop is one of the most loved musical genres in the world and Ghana is no exception to this rule and as the music keeps evolving, so do the creative artists behind the songs. Dedebah is one of the first names that come to mind when the topic in discussion is “Ghanaian Female Rappers”. Dedebah is a very versatile rapper who does not shy away from any challenge. Her sound has gained massive recognition from top blogs and major industry players including hip-hop heavyweights Sarkodie, Medikal, amongst others.

Dedebah is at the pinnacle of her career where she deems it a necessity to give her fans a full body project instead of the occasional singles. Last year she took to social media to announce her maiden EP dubbed “Bosompemaa”. The anticipation for this project has gone through the roof with fans being eager to get their hands on this EP. The African Rap Diva decided to stop fans from lingering anymore by putting out the first major single off the “Bosompemaa EP” titled “Have Fun With It”.

“Have Fun With It” is a groovy hip-hop song with a very catchy and melodic hook. In the first verse she shows off her lyrical prowess. She can be heard saying in local dialect twi “Bosompemaa, mey3 ohemaa” which is simply to remind the listener of the Queen that she is, with no other person being at par with her. The song is produced by Riddim Boss and the video was shot by Director Banitchi.

Stream and enjoy !!

“Have Fun With It” is available on all major digital music stores via this link
