Song of the Day: ‘Sika’ by Lasmid featuring Dead Peepol

Name: Lasmid
Representing: Sekondi-Takoradi, Ghana
Genre: Hip-Hop/Asakaa
For fans of: Kofi Jamar
Single from: N/A
Produced by: Beatz Vampire
Song of the Day: May 9, 2021
Label(s): Highly Spiritual Music


Lasmid, a rising singer-songwriter from Ghana, recently released the visual for his Beatz Vampire produced track ‘Sika’, which features beautiful vocals—complementing the Asakaa beat differently. Drill beats from other parts of the world are far more aggressive in tonality and made to receive audacious and daring messaging. Though, in this song, it appears the artists pray for brighter days and work towards earning life-changing amounts of money. According to my followers on Twitter, the word translates to “money” in English. Watch the video below, featuring Asakaa/Ghana Drill duo Dead Peepol, directed by Kojo Myles.
