The many refix jumps on Shatta Wale’s “On God” track have introduced a lot of upcoming artistes to the Shatta Movement fans and beyond that nucleus, yet the most jumpers are male artistes —- talking of gender count, but Ruki’s top-a-top refix has made a double impact by breaking into the male dominance as one of the fine pieces and taking the female lead in the refix bevy pack.
Ruki wreaked decent havoc on the “On God” beat, dropping ear-pleasing Hausa bars in a new times dancehall flow that instantly hits home for most of today’s dancehall lovers worldwide and such a dope lyrical delivery service will mostly expand her mini fanbase when the promo of the refix goes north and spreads out wide.
Dubbed “Mugan Su”, an Hausa phrase that translates in English as “We See Them”, Ruki’s “On God” refix won’t only be a popular Zongo anthem that will circulate in most Muslim communities, but it will also make it to many a reggae-dancehall DJ’s non-patois playlists to serve their audience a linguistic wow.
Critically checked, Ruki can be rated as the most consistent and hardworking Ghanaian female reggae-dancehall artiste, in that she comparably rocks the most gigs per year while the other females rock one, two or none at all.
One Family Yard, the record label behind Ruki’s musical operations, has been giving Ruki better firm stakes from day one — probably with the steady intent to make her occupy the number female spot in Ghana’s reggae-dancehall record or better still position her in a rank where she rubs shoulders with top-ranking males in serious competitive friction as far good music and standard stage craft go.
Ruki might have stepped into the “On God” refix rush this skill to capitalize and leverage —- a smart move that will surely scoop into her fanbase many more new fans home and abroad off Shatta Wale’s brand’s springboard.
