Amanda Black joins musical forces with Ghanaian hip-hop heavyweight, Joey B, to perform each other’s tracks and create a blazing tune together.

Speaking in an interview in Kenya during the production, Amanda Black said, “I love working with people from different backgrounds and even better, people from different countries where cultures and languages come together.
