Y-Bayani And His Band of Enlightenment, Reason And Love – Rehwe Mie Enyim / Mi Sumolo

Y-Bayani & Baby Naa – Rehwe Mie Enyim

The ever-brilliant Philophon unveil their first release of the year courtesy of Y-Bayani. The lead track ‘Rehwe Mie Enyim’ a terrific collaboration with Baby Naa came about by pure chance as Baby Naa was just hanging out at the studio in Accra/Ghana when the recordings of Rehwe Mie Enyim took place. The crew was waiting desperately for a singer to back up Y-Bayani. The producer, knowing that she sings at church every Sunday, asked Baby Naa to do the missing part. Then something occurred that nobody was expecting and finally everybody was happy that the original singer hadn’t made it. Rehwe Mie Enyim is a unique example of how roots-reggae can sound today. On the flip side, the marvellously named Band of Enlightenment, Reason and Love bless us with ‘Mi Sumolo’ a bright and breezy instrumental. We’ve had it on repeat all day long, and once you hear it you probably will do too!
