We had a ball making this one – making moves throughout town from James Town to Arts Centre, Brekuso to Agbogbloshie.The video also features cameo appearances by Wanlov the Kubolor and M3NSA of FOKN BOIS and Wanlov’s sister star, Deborah Vanessa.
Mantse shares his vision for “FACes”: “I wanted to string all these places within Accra that represented disconnection into the song. Not just places of disconnect but also of triumph and beauty that is uniquely Ghanaian. Tawiah’s voice lends itself to these moments and the music haunts your senses, so we picked places that captured the essence of the song.”
Download the track for free here as Tawiah supports the International Day for Street Children today, April 12th.

beautiful stuff – though I dare say, Mantse’s finest music video is Butcher of Sheep > http://vimeo.com/15740617 < . It has some of teh same themes of disconect, is much darker and manages to combine this witha gripping narrative. I guess I had somehwo wished for a short film of which the music video isna integrative part. That's just because it would have been great to see what two such creative Ghanaian / Diasporan minds can come up with. Don't get me wrong, the video is great – but you guys should collaborate again, esp. because Tawiah's music is often driven by a narrative urgency that I think Mantse can capture…
