Nothing like starting the new year off right with a Ghanaian azonto hit, right? This azonto song is not coming from Sarkodie or Fuse ODG, but from an artist from the diverse and lively Dansoman neighborhood of Accra, Ghana.

 Blaka, also known as  "Tualai", which means 'He who does not tell lies', is a Hip-life recording artist and producer. He grew up listening to hip-hop artists and learned rhythm himself by playing drums at church.

His song 'Tozo' means 'It's life' and according to Akwaaba music, the song is "Concerned with helping Dansoman's youth rise to the top, [and is released] as both a dance anthem and a positive call for action among fellow underground artists."

If you like his azonto beats, keep up-to-date with Blaka's releases by following him on Facebook.
