Yung Pabi teamed up with Akan to create this hip hop song that encourages self-belief. M3ntie, an Akan word which literally translates, I did not listen, is what I chose to call this piece of art.
This song’s inspiration came from the people who told him to quit music and go for a 9 to 5 because as it stands, his passion is not paying my bills and also those who kept telling him to change his style and do what everybody is doing. I mean those who told him indirectly to lose himself and make music he did not believe in.
Sometimes we are told to go against our will or our plans and it works out, but what about the other times we disobey and still succeed? Sometimes listening to ourselves and having absolute belief in what we think and feel, gets us closer to our dreams. Even if we fail, our mistakes teaches us the right route to take when we try again. He is at a point in his career where he has crossed the red sea and no matter the obstacle that comes his way, he know he is victory bound. he is glad he did not listen.
We pray this song goes a long way to light the bulb in you too.
