“‘Africa Is Not A Country’ is a track that motivated me to do to let the world know more about Africa, and that to give exposure since there is a lot of thing to explore in Africa. I have started the track back in 2019 but still was not satisfied with the result and been changing adding stuffs removing stuffs all through. Have done big room, Riddim Dubstep, and trap version but the last one I was satisfied with. After some time listening to it I felt it was missing some sounds. Then I come up with the sound of “Washint,” an Ethiopian instrument sounds like a flute. After all this manage to get it signed it to a label based in Amsterdam Actuation.”
