In “Form Pan Me” SILVASTONE amusingly narrates his dilemma of being in love with a begrudging lady who is not content with all the love he provides daily but instead seems more pre-occupied with the material things he should be providing. The song title is a popular Krio (Sierra Leone) phrase you would say to a nuisance who brings you heartache. Look out for the hilarious music video dropping this week too. Meanwhile on the chorus of “Pikin”- which translates to child, you hear SILVASTONE ask the mother of his love interest for her daughter’s hand in marriage. Despite the titles both songs are actually sang in English and require no further translation.
The self-produced “Form Pan Me” is set over a sweetly infectious mid-tempo melody that see’s SILVASTONE showcase his signature sound that fuses African beats and melodies over UK Sounds and Global Melodies. New upcoming Ghanaian beatsmith Umagar follows a similar formula on production duties for “Pikin”. Both joints are certified laid-back bangers and are a perfect set-up announcements of what to anticipate on the forthcoming ‘AFFIRMATION’ EP.
