Sarkodie on why the album title is ‘No Pressure’

Yes, exactly what the title says, ‘No Pressure.’ Literally, no pressure. I’ve been doing this, as you said over 10 years. And it’s very difficult, especially for a rapper in Africa, to be able to keep it for that long. So I think I’ve gained a right to be able to believe and trust myself and trust the process and the pace that I go, because I feel like a lot of people rush to impress so quick that you put out everything that you got and now you have nothing left to show the people.

Sarkodie on emerging sounds in Ghana like Asakaa Drill

Ghana is in a right space now. Every generation takes it to the next level. So these new guys are going to do way bigger than what everybody has done, and that’s what’s going to happen generation after generation because they’re looking at what we did and looking at the flaws and they’re going to better it, especially for the Kumerica movement. That’s a representation of Ghanaian hip hop at this point and people love it. People in the UK vibe to it. I’ve been here a few occasions and when they played the Kumerica sound, you can see how people really love it.

Sarkodie on how Oxlade manifested collaborating with him on “Non Living Thing”

The spiritual thing about the song is Oxlade apparently had recorded a song for me even before meeting me as Sarkodie. So him as a young artist wrote the song, thinking this song is for Sarkodie. Yeah. So long ago, apparently he was like in a DM trying to hit me up about, “Bro, I have a song. I have a song.” So now, when we met it’s like, this is a song that I wrote for you. So it was very, very… It’s a moment for me, very spiritual.



Nanky drops new ampiano song titled ‘No Devil’



Coming off the heat of several hit singles, Sultan Incorporated signee, Nanky isn’t yet satisfied and wouldn’t be quitting anytime soon as he injects another certified hit single; No Devil.

Over here on the West side of Africa, the Amapiano wave which emanated from the South all the way to the East of Africa is fast gaining grounds and making its way into the hearts of music lovers.

Hence, it wouldn’t be a complete endeavor if the gifted crooner, Nanky, doesn’t cement the process with his dope vocal skills and versatile flair as displayed on this tune.

Produced by the hitmaking music genius, Streetbeatz, the Amapiano infused instrumentation is just right for the message that No Devil carries.

The Cassette hitmaker is simply sounding a fair warning to all haters and enemies who wish to double-cross him on his level but he specifies that he is far gone and no devil can destroy his success.

This could quite be the story for every hustler out there striving to make ends meet and ascend the ladder of wealth!

Apple Music’s first-ever playlist curated by Deaf people



You don’t need to hear every note or lyric perfectly to feel a song’s power. For Deaf people, there are many ways to experience the magic of music—through dancing, or feeling the vibrations of the bass and treble through your skin, or tapping along to the rhythm the beats create as they pass through your body. In celebration of the original Apple TV+ film CODA, this playlist is curated specifically by Deaf people. We’ve asked Deaf contributors across the country about how they experience music and what it means to them, and have compiled a few of their favorite songs and the reasons why these resonate for them so deeply.

Nico DiMarco, DJ, Washington, D.C.
Eminem, “Without Me”
“I may not have heard the lyrics, but I quickly realized from the rhythm and beat that this track was one of my favorites, and it’s still a favorite of mine today.”

Jessica Flores, comedian, San Francisco
The Luniz, “I Got 5 on It”
“I first heard this song when I was 13, but without being able to hear the words, I couldn’t figure out the title or artist. Years later, this song started playing at a house party and my eyes lit up. Even though I still couldn’t hear the words, it was pretty dope that I still remembered the feeling of the beat.”

Matt Maxey, founder of DEAFinitely Dope, Atlanta
Kirk Franklin, “Brighter Day”
“This song right here, no matter what I’m going through in life, it always puts a smile on my face, gets me dancing and enjoying life in a more positive light.”

Savannah Dahan, performance artist, Maryland
Sean Forbes, “Little Victories”
“Sean is a Deaf artist that makes music and I love dancing to his songs! This song has an amazing beat; it inspires me and makes me feel that I can do anything.“

Jacelyn Fincher, student, Washington, D.C.
Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, “Señorita”
“I love hearing Camila’s voice. It’s so high-pitched and satisfying in my ear, and I can clearly hear what she is saying once I memorized the lyrics by watching [the music video].”

Additional curators: Chrissy Marshall, Destiny Lopez, Giovanni Maucere, Lark Detweiler, Rosa Lee Timm, Sean Forbes, Shaeeem Sanchez, Sheena Lyles, and TreShelle Edmond.
