Award-winning Ghanaian Dancehall artist, Epixode has for the first time revealed how his music aided a student to pass an exams test after recalling the lyrics of his song.
Speaking in an interview with Felicia Osei on Accra-based Onua Fm, he said someone reached out to him that he was writing a paper and there was a question that they had to write a biography of “Mandela” and because he knew the lyrics of his song dubbed “Mandela”, he was able to pass.
Epixode furthered that his song titled “Sinner’s Prayer” also prevented someone from committing suicide after listening to the lyrics.
“I have this song called “Sinner’s Prayer”, somebody told me that, that song saved her because she was going to commit suicide. So that was deep for me…it was quite a personal song but somebody can relate.
“And now, looking at another part of me too, when I dropped a song like “Mandela”, somebody reached out that he was writing a paper and there was a question in there that they had to write a bio of “Mandela” and because he knew the lyrics of that song, he was able to pass…you know.
“So, for me, it’s more awakening that we as entertainers have a greater goal, if we can do songs that can raise concerns about mining and climate change, it goes a long way, ten years from now people can actually relate to them and use them as a reference,” he said.
