#TBT HIPLIFE : VIP – Daben Na Odo Beba

For our #TBT HIPLIFE feature for this week, we are delighted to take you back to the yo-yo guy-guy days of hiplife.
We present to you one of Nima’s finest musical exports Vision in Progress – VIP’s Daben Na Odo Beba.
This song features Lazzy (now known as Zeal)(Abdul Hamid Ibrahim), Prodigal (Joseph Nana Ofori) and Promzy (Emmanuel Promzy Ababio).
Daben Na Odo Beba is one of the many upbeat hiplife songs on VIP’s Lumbe Lumbe Lumbe album.
The song is the yearning of an admirer eagerly waiting all day for the sweetheart to come home.
The Lumbe Lumbe Lumbe album was probably one of the first digital compact disc album by a hiplife group that I actually purchased.
No la borrow for this one. I bought it years after it had come out somewhere on Oxford Street in Osu.
Anytime I got those Ghanaian nostalgic blues, I will crank it up and get my VIP dance on, crib walk or Harlem shakeon.(the old school version).
VIP has undergone some evolution over the years and now goes by the name VVIP.
Originally a larger group that had Lazzy (Zeal), Prodigal, Friction, Promzy and Bone, the group has mostly consisted of the three Lazzy(Zeal), Prodigal and Promzy in a large chunk of its existence.
Although Friction (Musah Haruna), Bone, and Promzy are no longer part of the group, VIP still has a special place in the hearts of Ghanaians and the annals of the history of hiplife.
Promzy’s Wor Wor Wor Wor or is it Wo Wor Wo Wor…well what the actual spelling of the phrase it became a popular catchphrase when the boyz-boyz met.
It did not have any particular reason as far as I know, but it was just cool to say for some reason.
One again we will like to please share with us your memories of this song.
