‘Kaaklo’ is the second single off the upcoming “HIC” (Here I Come) album by Ghanaian/Nigerian rapper and actor, Ian Jazzi.
The song, which was produced by Fyber Beatz, and employs the sense of humor of Ghanaian musician, Wanlov the Kubolor, who doesn’t disappoint.
‘Kaaklo’ is a delicacy made from overly ripe plantain that attains a mushy texture and is usually enjoyed with Aborboi, a local name for Bambara beans. That combination of Kaaklo and Aborboi seems to have found a special place in Ian Jazzi’s heart and we can tell from his verses that it was certainly his favorite dish as a boy and even now.
The song is accompanied by a food-documentary style music video directed by Mutombo Da Poet and shot around North Kaneshie area. The piece showcases the preparation of the meal amid wild performances by Ian Jazzi and Wanlov the Kubolor.
