Music legend Gyedu Blay Ambolley has released a new track after what seems like a long hiatus. The Western Hall-of-famer dropped his song ‘Government Shoe’ over the past week.
The track dropped with a video to go with it and almost instantly went viral due not only to the popularity and obvious stylistic finesse of the maestro singer but also due to the subject matter.
The song seems to be an obvious and direct message to politicians and particularly the government in power. He makes no pretense at all about what he is talking about, rendering a commentary on what seems to be the state of Ghana right now.
The song seems to be an obvious and direct message to politicians and particularly the government in power.
“Government shoe, its not for you… for everybody” he delivers a call and response.
“Too much chop chop… too much lie lie… too much borrow borrow… nothing to show” he recites.
To enhance the imagery, the video shows him rendering his lyrics on a dais like a politician with microphones and all.
This government e nyash something dey there
He also borrows from his own hit song ‘Rag;m Zo’ to push the message in his song.
“This government e nyash something dey there”.
At a point in the song, if anyone was in any doubt about what and who he was addressing, he made it even clearer.
“How much can you eat?, … how much can you chop? You grow old already… Good name is better than riches”
The song continues to raise debates and emotions, but if social media is a good reflection of the mood of the people, music maestro Gyedu Blay Ambolley, has once again touched Ghana’s nerve.
