The siblings’ chemistry is palpable, their contrasting styles intertwining flawlessly to create a harmonious balance. Juma Mufasa’s self-assured flow opens the song then hands off to Allan Harvey, who deftly delivers a couple of smooth bars performed in French before switching to English. This sets the tone for their back-and-forth delivery which spans the entire record.
Juma Mufasa & Allan Harvey delve into personal struggles and triumphs with an honesty that resonates deeply. They tell a story of resilience and grit while calmly manifesting the life they desire when they put “Ghana on the (upper) echelon”. The penmanship on Tranquillo is intentional and descriptive, a notable example being from 01:46min – 01:58min mark when Allan Harvey masterfully crafts a “hands” metaphor:
“You’ve got a lot to say well
say it to the hand
Fingers up and stick it to the man
Fingers up and stick it to the system
I swear on god it’s getting outta hand
You don’t wanna bite the hands that feed you but you surely can”
Produced by metalbeatz, Tranquillo oozes with an infectious energy that immediately hooks you in. Meticulous attention to detail is evident from the crisp drums to the atmospheric synths, resulting in a sonic tapestry that immerses you in its hypnotic allure.
Tranquillo is a testament to the talent and artistic vision of Juma Mufasa and Allan Harvey. Keep your ears peeled for these talented siblings.
