Ghanaian singer-songwriter and producer, Sofie, joins forces with fellow compatriot and Afro-Pop star, Sister Deborah, for the recent single “We Dey.” The genre-bending track is accompanied by a music video, directed by Onasis Gaise, and shot by Apag Studios and Kwame Boadi in Accra, Ghana.
Produced by Sofie, the Afrobeat-infused song is driven by Ghanaian rhythms and melodies that explores the experience of living young and free in one of Africa’s greatest cities, Accra. The young up-and-comer sings, “Living on my own time/ Think it’s time to go/ Where we headed I don’t know/ In the whip like woah/ My song is on the radio/ I dey for the streets/ I’m out of the sheets.”
The music video for “We Dey” “is an amazing representation of the beautiful youth in Accra paving the way forward and building our own futures through creativity,” says Sofie, adding, “The exciting feelings of the song come alive with the music video and are displayed colourfully within the vibrant visuals, the glorious outfits, the awesome skater girls, and our set design. My friends and family also feature as cameos in the video, and they helped create an undeniable warm energy with the entire visual experience.”
Sofie’s rich musical background has helped her stand out, especially with songs like “BLUR” and “We Dey.” Blending soulful R&B with her Ghanaian influences, she integrates West African instrumentation, rhythms, and melodies into her sound. Collaborating with names such as Sister Deborah, and having released two successful EPs, has created grand opportunities for the rising artist, who has participated in major festivals, even opening concerts in New York’s Times Square.
