Coming off his single "No Fear" with Vic Mensa, M.anifest returns to the forefront with a new record "Confusion" that explores his hometown of Accra, Ghana. M.anifest teams up with MOBO Award-nominated artist and producer JULS who crafts a percussion-heavy afrobeat backdrop laced with smooth textures and heavenly guitar licks to match.
While the production has a happy and bright aesthetic, M.anifest flips the script to reflect on something more profound and somewhat gloomy instead. Armed with his characteristic care-free flow and evocative lyrics, he paints a clear picture of life in the modern city of Accra. From the underbelly of the slums to the skyscrapers and tro-tro (commercial vehicles), the rapper draws listeners deep into the conversation of how the hustle and bustle can change us all. Everyone is in a haste and we don't even take time to smell the proverbial roses until it's too late but luckily for us, M.anifest is here to provide the calm and a not so gentle reminder for us to slow down our roll and just relax.

Additional instrumentation by Elias Jordan Atkinson (Blue Lab Beats, Ezra Collective) and Efeoghene Alloh (Asa, Odunsi The Engine, Lady Donli).
