As the video for her song ‘Shush’ begins, talented Ghanaian singer OV—real name Barbara Naa Nyarko—beset by problems, sits in a prison cell wearing a red ensemble with two people and uses the trials and tribulations she faced as inspiration to writing such a song. Last year to the local news in Ghana, the artist formerly signed to Stonebwoy’s label revealed that she struggled with her mental health after her relationship with Burniton Music Group fizzled out. Now, she’s back, singing and asking vital questions from her mind and the depths of her soul.
