‘Coco’ is the new song of the Ghanaian-Dutch artist Friction. It is a catchy Afrobeats-song, mixing English with the Ghanaian languages Hausa and Twi.
On this song Friction is working together with the Ghanaian superstar Zeal, who is known as a solo-artist and member of the group VVIP.
As a teenager Friction started the music crew VIP (Vision in Progress) in Ghana, which became one of Africa’s most well known music groups.
Zeal was also a band member of this group. They became superstars and a big example for the Ghanaian youth; because they came out of one of Accra’s biggest ghetto’s they were, and still are, a huge example and inspiration.
Besides that, Friction started rapping and singing in a local language called Hausa as the first young artist, making the ghetto youth seeing him and VIP as their representation.
After a couple of years with VIP, Friction decided to continue as a solo artist to develop himself. In 2006 he auditioned for a Dutch music university, and got admitted as the first African artist ever. Since then he is based in Holland, focussing on his music carreer from there.
Throughout the years he has released multiple singles and albums, and at the moment he is touring the world with his band.
Now Friction is back with ‘Coco’, which make fans, music lovers and the media thrilled; Ghana’s legendary founder of VIP is back, with a great Afrobeats song, and on top of this it’s a collaboration with his former bandmember Zeal!
