“The track confidently holds the rhythm specified by the AFROBEATS genre and sounds so atmospheric that you feel as if you are in the walls of a huge club, where -papa Sound and Jamkid-. Yes, such music can wake anyone! (Automatically Translated with Google Translate)”
“Трек уверенно держит заданный жанром Afrobeats ритм и звучит настолько атмосферно, что создаётся ощущение, как будто находишься в стенах огромного клуба, где за пультом красуются -PAPA Sound и Jamkid-. Да, подобная музыка способна разбудить любого!”
Mannen’s created on the same riddim (instrumental) as One Bagga Shh!. It’s an energetic dance song with flavors from dancehall, afropop and reggae. The song is performed by Jamkid from Rågsved, Stockholm. Jamkid got the name from his parents who saw that Jombo (his real name) hummed and danced to dancehall and reggae, and give him the name “the jaming kid”, later Jamkid. Mannen’s all about loyalty and suburban friendship that leads to disappointments. Boys often call each other “brother”, “fam”, “akhi” and so on, men who later get into the backside of the street with money, hype or drugs, they turn their backs on each other. Instead of remembering that you belong together and have shared moments and successes.
The word “Mannen” means something like an upset: “Hey, what are you doing!”
