When music man Aligata App first pricked my attention, it was for his ‘Gbemiwaa’ song; a Stonebwoy ‘Gidigba’ cover. In it he took no prisoners, putting both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) partisan leaders to the sword for their failed promises and general inept governance.
Aligata App proving himself a social commentator very much in the mold of Osagyefo the Entertainer, raised his handgun at the NPP and Akufo-Addo’s regime, slamming the E-levy imposition and the senseless fixation with the National Cathedral Project which has been exposed for its fraudulent elements.
Never a zealot, Aligata App born Kofi Acquah expressed real concern with the unemployment threat university graduates face despite the funds pumped into receiving degrees funded by weary parents and relatives or via solicitation.
Aligata has since released some good tracks but without a doubt his ‘Akwankwaa Hiani’ refix ‘Alomo Gyata’ of Noble Adu Kwasi’s ‘Akwankwaa Hiani’ song has fallen on very fertile minds and hearts.
The song about an Alomo Gyata – a difficult woman to love sees Aligata come to terms with his poor choice in women noting although he’s enchanted by her, she’s keen to exact her pound of flesh over a disagreement which could land him in jail.
Alomo Gyata has gathered steam on TikTok and to think this song was released five months ago, only now enjoying such digital play must pleasantly surprise Aligata showing his sorrowful, sultry voice is loved by many.
Alomo Gyata was audio mixed and mastered by Magnom @Magnom_Official. The Swedru Secondary School (SWESCO) product is on the right path to success and together with the likes of Bogo Blay and Yong Perbi, Ghana’s musical fortunes are in good hands.
