‘Amedeke Menyao’ translates from Ewe, Delasi‘s mother tongue into English as ‘Nobody Knows’.
Delasi raps and sings messages of hope and determination and themes of overcoming one’s fears in both English and Ewe over thumping dubstep influences mixed with Afro hip hop elements over production done by Lee Bass.
Our protagonist is seen fleeing all sorts of looming characters,(symbolic of life’s challenges as a young African male) two thugs portrayed in cameo by Germany’s famous rapper and DJ, Amewu and his friend DJ Werd give hot chase in some of Berlin’s nooks and crannies, the running man seeks solace on the way but is met with weird energies whom he tries to get away from.
He chances upon a mysterious Spirit Guide figure (Ekow Alabi Savage, a renowned Ghanaian drummer) who blesses him with a microphone as a weapon for him to fight his battles with.
With the mic in hand, Delasi goes out to face his fears and emerges as the victor????
Special cameo appearance by Lee Bass (producer of the song), one half of German group Gato Preto is the villain that Delasi squares off with in the end of the video.
