Pappy Kojo’s Busiswa-Assisted “Thomas” Remix Sets the Tone For A Truly Ghanaian Christmas

Pappy Kojo

Rapper Pappy Kojo returned from a year-long musical hiatus with a rejuvenated version of his celebratory end of year anthem “Thomas Pompoyeyaw”.

“Thomas Pompoyeyaw” remix maintains the original version’s afro-influenced EDM production calibrated by Grammy-nominated Ghanaian record producer GuiltyBeatz. This is not the first time Pappy Kojo and GuiltyBeatz have joined forces, as they earlier collaborated on GuiltyBeatz’s 2018 smash hit record “Akwaaba” which also featured afrobeat superstar Mr. Eazi and Patapaa. The dance record garnered millions of streams across all platforms, launching GuiltyBeatz into worldwide prominence. The highly-rated producer has gone on to produce three records off Beyonce’s Grammy-nominated ‘Lion King: The Gift’ album.

Pappy Kojo taps yet another Beyonce collaborator for the remix, South Africa’s queen of dance, Busiswa (who also made a guest appearance on The Gift album). Busiswa complements Pappy Kojo’s efforts with a memorable rap verse.

Going by the moniker “Fante Van Damme“, Pappy Kojo has always made it a point to put his hometown – the coastal Fante twin city of Sekondi-Takoradi on the map. “Thomas Pompoyeyaw” is yet another step taken in that direction. Aside from being an ode to the rapper’s birthplace, the afro-infused EDM jam also sets the tone for the city’s famous Masquerade Festival which is celebrated annually during the Christmas festivities.

The complementary music video accurately captures the carnival mood of the famous festival. Directed by David Nicol-Sey, the eye-popping visuals features cutaway scenes highlighting the historical city’s beautiful beaches, iconic street relics and electrifying native dancers clad in colorful masquerade regalia.
