Today, the Ghanaian recording artist M.anifest released a track called ‘Don’t Follow Me’ featuring Bayku & Yaa Pono. On the record, the vocalists speak about earning and providing for their families, religion, and leading double lives. Perhaps, it is smart to avoid following in their footsteps. The number of things they might have to balance to make their lives work, might not work for everyone. Play the well-produced track by MikeMillzOnEm below.
