British Ghanaian afropop sensation, Fuse ODG, has dropped a new single, featuring two Asian artists in a collaboration meant to ‘bring people together’.
Fuse visited India as part of a tour he’s doing, and worked on the song, ‘BomBae’; with British-Pakistani artist Zach Knight and Indian rapper Bobshah.
‘Bombae’ is a hip tune the singer is describing as ‘Afro-Bollywood’ (when Afrobeats meets Bollywood).
Prior to its release, Fuse made a lengthy post on social media explaining what the initiative is all about.
During my trip to Mumbai, India, I experienced a richness in culture that I had only previously experienced in Africa, crazy driving, beautiful people, banging food and unique music.
I linked up with two Asian artists and we have made a song that mixes the two cultures in music entitled “BomBae”. Being born in Tooting, South London, I was always exposed to the Asian culture and always appreciated the similarities shared with mine.
This is why I make music, to bring together and amalgamate different worlds as we are all the same in spirit regardless of our separation by borders, and misinformed perceptions.
This song will drop THIS FRIDAY (TOMORROW), First exclusive play on @BBCAsiannetwork 6pm
More Energy and good vibes for the world… It’s a worldwide movement, @Killbeatzgh Let’s Go
