This is a video my band Soulfège made of a remix to the West African Classic: "Sweet Mother". It was shot in my hometown of Accra, Ghana and charted in the Top 4 of the country after R. Kelly, Usher & Beyonce! It has since aired in over 50 countries. Pass it on & spread the vibes!

Peace & AFrobeats,
