Alternative Fruit is back in London to get an earful of Tony As and his latest single. Since the big success of his earlier video which entered into Sierra Leone's top ten music charts, and received press from us, the ex-teacher is back with yet more intelligent singing and rap. He's known for writing about the daily grind, relationships and the dynamics of social life. Taking adult themes like these and putting them to fun and easy to digest music is gaining Tony As a following to be proud of.
The track begins on a sunny bouncing beat. Strings and drums twang and strike in a reggae style while Tony begins to sing. His silken lines droop across the warmth like altar cloth, Tony As sings about the hope for tomorrow. We can keep working, keep praying, keep our head up high, and the rest has to be left to chance. Does God operate in the realm of luck? With all the science going on that makes sure the universe runs the way it should, it seems that chance is the only truly free part of our world. Don't believe in God? Then I guess you're just lucky to be alive.
