Video: King Ayisoba f. Kwaw Kese, “Look My Shoe”

December 01, 2008


One of the more peculiar dudes we heard about while studying up for our trip to Ghana earlier this year was frog-throated kolgo-strumming Rasta King Ayisoba. While in Accra, we heard and saw his name a few times and had a handful of songs from his iTunes-able album Modern Ghanaians, but it was still pretty unclear what ties, if any, he had to the story that eventually appeared in FADER Number 52, centered around hiplife artist Kwaw Kese. Turns out, there is now a direct tie, as Ayisoba and Kese shot a video together north of Accra in Nima along with local artists Mokin and Wanlov the Kubolor. As a result of this song's weirdly catchy keyboard melody, we have been walking the halls for two weeks asking people to look at our shoes. And then they do.

If King Ayisoba would like to email letters@thefader.com to let us know what we do next, we would appreciate it.
