"The new black starts [stars] song tho, do we have to learn it before the world cup ? whoever chose it probably wrote it too. Eiiiii track na 3y3 ya saaa no! Hmmm a few of us could have done a better job at that Chale anaa meeb)dam lol. but vim still for the boys. Go Ghana," he tweeted on November 19.

The morale of my statement beyond politics, typos and grammatical errors remains the fact that the track is wack in my Opinions."
