Ghanaian musical duo, Dope Nation, has revealed that they prefer live band performance to miming because they are not miming artistes.
In an interview on SVTV Africa, the Soundcity MVP Award winners told host DJ Nyaami that, even though they do not get the chance to rehearse with a live band, they most often perform using live band than miming.
“Oh yeah, we’re producers – funny enough we don’t really get the chance to rehearse with a live band for performances but once we get there we do our thing because we are producers ourselves and we know how it goes.
For miming, as an artiste, you’re not supposed to mime – what you are to do is, as a producer; you must get a performance-dab, the one without the vocals only the beat and the backings. So you can do your freestyle and everything will be normal. But for us, we never mime even before we started dropping our hit songs; we ride on beats and all that, so we never mime,” Twist added.
Dope Nation ? made up of Michael Boafo (B2) and Tony Boafo (Twist) has been credited with producing sounds for Ghanaian artistes such as E.L, Shatta Wale, Joey B, Pappy Kojo, Eazzy, Flowking Stone, among others.
Dope Nation released its first single ‘Bebia Ye Shi’ in 2016, followed by ‘Uh Huh’ in 2017. In 2018, the twin brothers were featured on E.L’s single, ‘Ayeyi’.
The Ghanaian musical duo, Dope Nation, has won the best duo award at the Soundcity MVP Awards 2020 in Nigeria.
