German based duo of Ghanaian descent, Terry Osei (T.O) and Manlikestunna has released their second commercial single in Ghana, ‘Motherland’.
The track according to the artistes depicts exactly what the motherland really means to them.
“Our love for Africa in general is immeasurable, especially knowing there is more to us than just being German born. Our love for the motherland heightens and this love and connection to Ghana remains deep rooted.”
T.O. commented in a press release copied to Livefmghana.com stated that “Yes we have a dual heritage however there will always be a dominant side which is Ghana. Not that we are less proud of the other heritage both sides are highly appreciated and have positively impacted us,”
“Our genesis is Ghana the Motherland, because the first culture we came in contact with was the Ghanaian culture, be it food, music or fashion. As a result, our heart and passion will always be with our Motherland Ghana, which we are proud to represent and shout about.”
“Hearing the ‘Motherland’ instrumental for the first time was with ManLikeStunna and the first word that came to mind, was actually the same title our producer already chose to name the instrumental.
Manlikestunna added that their producer heard the instrumental prior and thought ‘Motherland’ is the perfect name after hearing the steelpan and the horns melodies at the beginning of the instrumental.
“The two instruments put together called for immediate attention. What happened next was the masterpiece we call the ‘Motherland’” he concluded.
Terry and ManLikeStunna, both broke into the German music scene with ‘Shigege’ in 2012, which was a huge success in the Azonto era. Seven years later they are back and ready to take the music scene by storm with their latest single Motherland which is available on all major streaming platforms.
