Force One is a force to reckon with, as far as music from Anglophone West Africa is concerned. As the cliché goes: they have paid their dues. And, to repair that cliché, I should add: they have earned their stripes. Yup.
Force One comprises JM (Jean Marie Konan) and Major Goldman (Sébastien Amani). Two souls, of different familial roots, but markedly similar in their looks. In fact they can be mistaken for birth twins. In the world of music, it may be said that they are in fact twins – dropping the verses together and wowing music lovers across Africa.
The wowing did not start today, by the way. The masterminds of the album “Salamander” had dropped some lyrical fireballs previously, including “Number One,” “Follow Me Go,” “Alleluia,” featuring Mr Eazi, “Baby Marry,” “Yogo Yaga” and “Eyelo.”
“Zanku Dance” is what it is: a song to send you whirling on the dance floor. The festive season is just in the corner. Who wouldn’t want to dance, having come this far?
