Budding Ghanaian musician, Samuel Okyere, popularly known as Banini has released his first single for the year dubbed ‘Mobile Money Girl’.
The song was produced by renowned sound engineer, Possigee with Blessville Entertainment as the Executive Producer.
In an interview, Banini said the inspiration of the song stems from the numerous stories surrounding Mobile Money and the youth.
“Over the period, we have seen Ghana’s telecommunication companies rollout the Mobile Money service popularly called “Momo” for which it has created lots of direct and indirect employment.”
This notwithstanding, he added that there had been instances where some ladies have asked for Momo from guys to facilitate their transportation to visit them and failed to show up upon receipt of the money.
He added that the ladies later give numerous excuses for their inability to show up.
According to Banini, some of these ladies take guys through such ordeals just to finance their flamboyant lifestyles.
This coupled with different conversations around Momo inspired him to put a song together on a record.
The music video for ‘Mobile Money Girl’ was shot and directed by Henry Sarkodie of Sholk Thing Made.
Samuel Okyere is a graduate of Ghana’s Premier University, Legon and an ex-banker and currently works with an engineering company.
Focused on helping the next generation of musicians, he intends to use part of the proceeds from his musical career to set up a studio to train up and coming artistes given the challenges they go through when starting their career and the needy in the society.
