Boddhi Satva joins forces with fellow African music heroes Preto Show, Stonebwoy & Tenny for Dancehall / Afrobeats heavy hitter ‘Ragga Ragga’.
Enlisting a stellar trio of vocal talents for ‘Ragga Ragga’, Boddhi Satva lays down a potent Dancehall production, with his own unmistakable ‘Ancestral Soul’ sound in full effect. First up on the mic is Angolan music star Preto Show, who delivers a powerful opening in his native Portuguese. Previous collaborations with the likes of Gappy Ranks and Sizzla make Ghanaian crossover superstar Stonebwoy’s Dancehall credentials undeniable, and he doesn’t disappoint here with a typically assured performance. Delivering the song’s dynamite hook is rising Central African / Lebanese star Nefer Tenny, ensuring ‘Ragga Ragga’ stays firmly stuck in the memory.
Issued on BBE Music’s new sister label Batakari, founded in 2020 by Peter Adarkwah and Boddhi Satva, ‘Ragga Ragga’ sums up the imprint’s musical aesthetic beautifully: deeply rooted, futuristic, inventive African sounds from across the continent and beyond.
