Ghanaian rapper and beat maker, Lil Shaker, says the lyrics of his new hit track, ‘Handkerchief’, were inspired by God after a long period of prayer.
According to Lil Shaker, aside the beat and everything, his new single is more of a gospel tune than a secular one.
“Charley it is God oo. He inspired me to do this song. I actually didn’t really sit down to write the song. Everything just came to me when I heard Magnom producing this beat. The lyrics of the ‘Handkerchief’ song just came into my head and I started writing. It is more of a gospel song,” he told NEWS-ONE.
‘Handkerchief’ was released on Monday evening and has become a popular song within days, showing convincing potential of becoming a chart topper. The song, featured Kumasi Ko-Jo Cue and has a blend of Afro pop and hip pop groove, which makes music lovers want to listen to it over and over again.
Handkerchief happens to be the second single Lil Shaker, who is also known as ‘Captain Hook’, has released since he signed on to the leading multi-purpose entertainment company, BBnZ Live.
“The inspiration was solely from God. Currently we are working on the video for the song and trust me, it will be a blast,” he added.
