Trying Times (The Playlist) is a collection of poetry and songs carefully selected and intended to serve as solace for every individual facing a hard time in life. The playlist is dedicated especially to people who feel lost, people who are financially challenged and hustlers in general.

The legendary Bob Marley once said ‘One thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain’. Trying Times (The Playlist) is intended to help calm the listener down, and also to give them hope.

Curated by Ayorkor Fantastic and mixed by DJ Sedem, Trying Times (The Playlist) features a mix of both mainstream and up and coming artsites from Ghana, Nigeria and South Africa. It is a 4 track project.

Track 1, ‘Intro’ is a poetry piece by Amanda Black, and features Kush Mahleka, both South Africans. The track is off Amanda Black’s ‘Power’ Album. Track 2, ‘Pray For Me’ is a soulful afrobeats song by Ghanaian rapper and singer, Kwesi Arthur, and is off his latest album, ‘Live from Nkrumah Krom Vol II: Home Run’.

The 3rd track is also a soulful afrobeats song by budding Ghanaian singer and runner up from the 2019 Mentor Reloaded reality show, Yaw Blvck. The song is titled ‘One Day’ and is off his debut ‘Shades of Blvck’ EP. The last song on the playlist is by Starboy and features Wizkid and Kel-P vibes. It is off the EP, Soundman Vol. 1 and it is titled ‘Ease Your Mind’.
