Ghanaian Afro-pop musician, Michael Adangba known in the showbiz circles as Adangba is set to make a historic comeback with a classic video for his latest song “Yagkara”.
Adangba, who is popular known for his outstanding political campaign songs and prodigious contributions to National Democratic Congress’ historic win in the 2008 and 2012 general elections, is making a triumphant comeback under OX Records GH.
Speaking to Pulse.com.gh, Adangba disclosed that “Yagkara” is a Kasenna word which means ‘don’t cry’.
According to Adangba, he was inspired by his storytelling talent to write “Yagkara”. “I would say I am a storyteller. I tell history in my music. My songs are inspired by the things that happen in our daily lives,” he divulged.
“I have realised that broken hearts is on the rise so I decided to tackle it in this song. ‘Yagkara’ is a consoling song. It goes to anyone who has experienced broken heart in his/her relationship,” he said.
On why he had to travel a long distance before shooting the video, Adangba said he was looking for a unique location and ended up blowing over GH₵ 50,000 on “Yagkara” visual.
“Because we need a typical Northern village and unique location. We went to Tamale but there was a massive development so we had to move to Bolgatanga. We didn’t get a good location so we moved to Navrongo and still had to move to Burkina Faso to get the right location,” he said.
Touching on the video budgeting, Adangba disclosed that: “We budgeted GH₵ 50,000 but ended up paying more for miscellaneous.”
The video for “Yagkara” which was directed by Abstract, has some perfect scenes and well-laid storyline.
“Yagkara” music video is set for release on Sunday, April 16.
