Recently, Pepsi’s #RefreshTheMix movement revealed 4 DJ ambassadors who we can only imagine will pave the way and create a platform for fresh musical collaborations, experiments and mixes
just like Coke Studio Africa. The DJ’s signed to this revolution are DJ Spinall, DJ Xclusive, DJ Obi, and DJ Cuppy. Cuppy, just as we have recently seen with other Disk Jockeys, has ventured into music production and artistry. Her first outing, with Tekno on Green Light, received relative success and considerable airplay redirecting conversations about her craft and ultimately counting as one of her biggest wins yet.
Cuppy is back with another single, and while it is no Green Light, Vybe is an okay sequel. The Afro-pop tune features the highest Ghanaian artist – Sarkodie who brings his signature heavy twi delivery followed by a hysterical attempt at Yoruba from Cuppy.
The video to Vybe was shot in Dubai by Sesan, and as usual, is exhilarating. It’s in the desert with a handful of wheeled dare devils, Sarkodie, Cuppy and her glittery headphones. If anything, her consistency so far is commendable, and choice of collaborations – even better.
