The multi-award-winning rapper Sarkodie worked with Dope Nation’s Micheal Boafo, better known as B2, and Tony Boafo, better known as Twist, on their song “Check My Zingo,” and they explained how it came about.
The twin brothers told Berla Mundi on TV3 Newday that their collaboration with Sarkodie wasn’t planned; rather, it just happened, and they provided a brief account of how it all got started.
“We released the first version of it and it came with a hype video. He (Sarkodie) saw it and posted it on his story,” they said.
They continued, “Two to three days later, he sent us a dm to send him the beats. At the beginning of the year, we didn’t have anyone to fuse with on this track.”
Dope Nation claimed that Sarkodie’s verse was “fire” and that it didn’t take very long to record. They emphasized that the engagement of people like Ghanaian music producer KillBeatz made the event completely distinct.
“It didn’t even take 30 minutes. He sent his verse. We checked it out and it was fire. We did a mix. The amazing thing about this is after he asked for the beats, we had a dm from KillBeatz and he complimented the song. He sent a VN and when we listened, Sarkodie was doing his thing. The experience was different,” they shared.
When the song was out, Berla noted that they had given record producer Hammer some social media props, and they wanted them to elaborate on why.
“He has this sound from Obrafour’s old song; we took it and placed it in the new song, ‘Check My Zingo’. What we are trying to do is to merge the old song and evolve it into a new one,” they mentioned.
