#TBT HIPLIFE : Reggie Rockstone – Eye mo de anaa

For our #TBT HIPLIFE feature for this week, we are delighted to present to you the evergreen Reggie Rockstone’s Eye mo de anaa
This upbeat hiplife song is a reminder of the undeniable talent that Reggie Rockstone possesses.
Credited as being the founder of Ghana’s hiplife genre, Reggie Rockstone has several iconic songs to his credit of which Eye mo de anaa is one.
Eye mo de anaa, a Twi phrase translated into English means do you love it.
This song is one of the many chart-topping singles off Reggie Rockstone’s 1999 Me Na Me Kae album.
Throughout the song, Reggie Rockstone transitions effortlessly between Twi and English with a strong word play that provides evidence of his undeniable mastery of two expressive languages.
Every Ghanaian kid we knew who grew up with a penchant for hip-hop loved this song. Growing up in the golden age of hip-hop, it was refreshing to have song we could lay claim to as hip-hop made in Ghana.
The video which was directed by the legendary Abraham Ohene-Djan has some scenes of Reggie Rockstone behind a bar, a possible prognostication of Reggie Rockstone’s success as an owner of Reggie Rockstone’s Office/Grand Papazz and Django Bar.
