The title is especially symbolic, with the “Angels” part of it referencing the good guys in Ghana’s music industry, who believe in progress – theirs as well as others’; and the “Demons,” representing the bad guys – the contentious and pugnacious crowd that cannot wait to cause problems for others and hamper their growth.
On the surface the song may be addressed to some artistes in Ghana’s music industry. In reality, though, the song has universal application, and anyone familiar with the music industry, where peeps readily do anything to stay relevant, will especially appreciate the song’s merit.
This song “Angels and Demons” made the cut in Sarkodie’s recently released “Alpha” tape. He wouldn’t call it an album or an EP. Anyway, “Angels and Demons” is one of the memorable tracks in the EP, a track you are going to return to, unbidden.
Well, for a musician of Sarkodie’s stature, this is not surprising. The songster, who is among Ghana’s most visible artistes, dropped a cover of Kizz Daniel’s “Fvck You” same month Lizz Daniel gave the challenge.
