New Music: ‘Shame & Scandal In The Family’ By Ben Brako Featuring ASEM


In Ghana, lots of music is churned out on daily basis, yet great chunk of such songs are nothing to write home about – just ordinary and noisy songs.

You can blame that on the proliferation of recording studios at every corner in the country. Because of the availability of such studios, anybody at all can record something and call it music.

Only few take their time to record something worth listening to. Lyrics in a song determine the credibility of a musician. Some good songs die as the bad ones get rotation on radio at their expense.

GhanaCelebrities.Com has obtained a new song of legendary Highlife musician, Ben Brako featuring one of the hardworking and best rappers in Ghana, A.S.E.M.

The song is titled ‘Shame & Scandal In The Family’, produced by Kaywa and its simply what you will call a masterpiece. No needless noise. It’s a song that both old and young folks can relate to.

‘Shame & Scandal In The Family’ talks about a young man who wanted to marry because he felt he was old and grown enough to take a wife. In his bid to get married, he introduced his woman to his dad, only to be informed that, his bride to be is his sister, yet his mum doesn’t know.

The dad told him: “Son, I have to say no, this girl is your sister, but your mama don’t know”.

The young man went straight to his mother and told her all that the dad has said. She urged him on to go ahead to marry her. She laughed and said to him: “Go man, go.  Your daddy ain’t your daddy, but your daddy don’t know.”

What would you have done if you were in the young man’s shoes? Who would you listen to: Mum or Dad?

FIRST VERSE – BEN BRAKO

In Sekunde town there was a family

With much confusion as you will see

It was a mama and a papa and a boy who was grown

He wanted to marry, have a wife of his own

He found a young girl that suited him nice

Went to his papa to ask his advice

His papa said: “Son, I have to say no,

This girl is your sister, but your mama don’t know”

CHORUS

Woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family

Woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family

SECOND VERSE – BEN BRAKO

A week went by and the summer came round

Soon the best cook in the town he did find

He went to his papa to name the day

His papa shook his head and to him he did say

“You can’t marry that girl; I have to say no,

This girl is your sister, but your mama don’t know”

CHORUS

Woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family

Woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family

RAP – A.S.E.M.

Papa, I just found out she is late

That’s why we are getting married

Lord knows I am a man of faith

But l really hope she miscarries

Cos I can’t have a son who is a nephew

And I can’t have a niece who is a daughter

Confused, don’t know what to do

But I am starring at the ring that I bought her

How do I tell my wife-to-be that she is also my sister

How do I wipe the memories of all the times that I kissed her

Now you’re telling me to remain calm

Telling me that I can’t tell mum

Papa was a rolling stone

Damn! I hate that song

THIRD VERSE – BEN BRAKO

He went to his mama and covered his head

And told her all what his daddy had said

His mama she laughed, she say, “Go man, go

Your daddy ain’t your daddy, but your daddy don’t know.”

A.S.E.M. adlibs

Oh, woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family

Oh, woe is me

Shame and scandal in the family
