Kundivi Mahama, known as Amadu Abdul Rashid Mahama in real life, is set to make waves in the music industry with the release of his upcoming song “Afara’nga.”

The song is a fusion of Sahel Soul with a touch of northern Ghana essence. Kundivi Mahama has introduced a new genre term “UppersLife” to describe his unique blend of influences inspired by the renowned Uppers International Dance Band from the 60s to the early 80s.

“‘AFARA’NGA’ is a Sahel Soul rendition coupled with a northern Ghana touch. The easier genre definition would be what I call UppersLife. It is just like Highlife in southern Ghana; UppersLife has an Upper East influence. The inspiration came from the careful study of the celebrated Uppers International Dance Band which existed in the 60s to the early 80s,” he said.

The artist aims to revive the legacy of the Uppers International Band and bring back the essence of UppersLife or Sahel Soul through his music.

Collaborating with producers ApaskaBeat and Eilbeat, Kundivi Mahama has crafted a sound that resonates with themes of unity, development, and the empowerment of black communities, particularly in northern Ghana.

“The sound seeks to sermon all forces for unity and development. It is a convergence of a common struggle to create a beautiful world for ourselves. It is Black People’s Unity for transformation. The sound seeks to bring all black people and northern Ghana people, especially together.”

“Afara’nga” is the fourth release from Kundivi Mahama’s upcoming album, following the success of “Tafaama,” “Sheiwuna,” and “Yinemi” featuring Soorebia. The artist plans to unveil the full album later this year, with “Afara’nga” scheduled to be released on Sunday, May 12th, 2024. Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting project and the visionary sound of Kundivi Mahama.
