Ghanaian singer, songwriter, and performer Herman Suede has continuously displayed his versatility and growing maturity with every release. He just released the 4-track EP titled ‘A Wonderful Time’, a project encapsulating the feeling of celebration, freedom, and joy.
With this new project, each song in its own way serves as a call to action to shed the weight of stress and anxiety that has been carried throughout the year to focus on life’s pleasures, whether it be through love, partying, road trips or general self-care, and self-prioritization. Each song is designed to create different imagery and transports the listener to a unique space and time.
On this project, Herman is able to deliver a vibrant alté-inspired intro song “Vanilla”, before seamlessly switching to a more traditional Afrobeats love ballad, “Lose Control” featuring fellow Ghanaian artiste, Niashun. Here, they put their own spin on a song about courting a love interest and losing control in the process. Herman Suede then creates a masterful modern rendition of Palm-wine and highlife music with “Wonderful Time,” the EP’s title track featuring UK Artiste Benty. He concludes the EP with “Final Destination,” a heavy Amapiano-infused club banger that features Herman’s most energetic delivery of the project.
‘A Wonderful Time’ is a testament to Herman’s ingenuity, infusing many influences from Hip-Hop, Afrobeats, Amapiano, R&B, and Highlife. Herman’s lyricism, skill and creativity are on full display throughout this project. Each song shows a different side of the multi-faceted artiste, and combines perfectly with each artiste featured on the project making the listening experience truly ‘A Wonderful Time’!
