Madras features Ponobiom on ‘Bra Begye’

Published

on

Up-and-coming Ghanaian hilife artist, Madras releases his second song, ‘Bra Begye’, produced by Da Beatmasta today, July 26, 2020.

The song features uptown energy boss, Ponobiom, who displays his usual versatility on it.

According to Madras, “we chose Ponobiom for this song because this track, being hilife, suits his rhymes and rhythms in rap. He sings very well, which added a different twist to the feature.”

With every relationship having its ups and downs, the song, “‘Bra Begye’ admonishes married couples to desist from involving too many friends in their marriages. As too many third parties on issues concerning their marriages usually do not have good intentions in helping maintain the marriage.”

“Surprisingly, most of these marriages that involve too many friends with their ill-advises, opinions and suggestions on how marriage is supposed to be and what the role of either the man or woman should be results in separation and mostly divorces due to the emotional manipulations by most of these friends,” he advised in a chitchat with amalarbieafrica.com.

“This song seeks to counsel spouses to take hold of their marriages as its their rightful duties to and rather resort to praying when a situation goes beyond their understanding and strength, ” Madras added.

‘Bra Begye’ song comes with an unofficial animated video, which is published, on his YouTube Channel, Madras Music Gh.

Madras’ debut single was ‘Wasei me’.
