Ian Jazzi And Wanlov The Kubolor Pay Ode To Ghanaian Meal ‘Kaaklo’
‘Kaaklo’ is the second single off the upcoming HIC (Here I Come) album by Ghanaian/Nigerian rapper and actor, Ian Jazzi.
The song, which was produced by Fyber Beatz, employ’s the humorousness of Ghanaian musician, Wanlov the Kubolor, who doesn’t disappoint.
The song begins with an intro by Wanlov who questions what’s in his plate, describes its mushy and oily nature, before concluding he can only take a “pisa” — he meant pizza as he didn’t know what food it was.
Ian Jazzi steps in to officially begin, flowing mainly in the Ga dialect, he paints a brief picture of of his childhood with the lyric;
“Kiddi time, 3years/6 o’clock, I make set”, describing his daily enthusiasm for the meal which is still well-known for its affordability and yes,
he used to thank God for the latter because the meal was mad tasty.
Ian then slides in with the hook, which tells us how he’s “on that” meal and its seller, every morning.
On verse two, Ian paints the previous picture again, but with the act now aged 30 and it seems times have changed: there’s no “aborboi” together with its seller!
Wanlov then takes center stage after another hook with a bunch of lyrics that listeners conversant with the Ga dialect will certainly giggle at and appreciate.
