“Sarkodie to collaborate with Ace Hood on new single”

It was an annoncement that was met with so much excitement from Ghanaians.

Then came the wahala and back & forth as to who asked who for a feature.

Then all of that passed and the song titled New Guy was finally released on Tuesday. It’s been trending on social media: specifically on Twitter, it’s had over 11million mentions apparently. Fellow Ghanaian musicians have also commented on the song. Among them are Efya, Mutombo Da Poet, Trigmatic, M.anifest, to name a few.

New Guy is about the emergence of….scratch that. Listen to Sarkodie himself explain #NewGuy from the 7:00 mark in this interview.

You can listen here (what the hell are you waiting for, if you haven’t.) The video will be premiered on MTV Base Africa in 3 days.

One more thing: M3nsa arguably has the most interesting #NewGuy tweets.
