Paapa Versa Shares New Single ‘Old Wineskins’ Ahead of His Impending ‘Versa Villa’ Album

Paapa Versa

Multitalented Ghanaian musician and producer Paapa Versa shares the highly anticipated song “Old Wineskins” with accompanying visuals.

The timely song, produced by Paapa Versa and mixed & mastered by Jayso, serves as a meditation on change and growth. “I wrote the song reflecting on many changes that were happening in my life all at once,” the artiste says. 

The music video amplifies that to a societal level. Directed by renowned music video director Nana Kofi Asihene, who has directed for Sarkodie, Mr. Eazi, WziKid, and more, the video portrays key issues plaguing Ghanaian society. 

Shot in Paapa’s hometown, Aburi, Ghana, the video touches on galamsey (a local Ghanaian jargon that describes small-scale illegal mining), corruption, pull-him-down syndrome, and more. It highlights the persistent struggles of a deprived society and how we have allowed our God-given natural resources to become a curse more than a blessing. But it ultimately conveys a message of hope – that with the correct inward change within each of us, we can achieve the huge potential we carry as individuals, and as a people. 

The release of this video follows the release of “Call You Mine” which received great reviews from music lovers worldwide.
