The Hempolics – Bongadashi | New Video
The Hempolics drops the visuals for their latest single ‘Bongadashi’ ahead of their upcoming second album “Kiss, Cuddle & Torture: Volume 2”.
Bongadashi is sung by Hempolics gang member Franz Jobe and the video is set in his home turf of Port of Spain in Tobago. In the words of the band’s mainman and producer Grippa Laybourne – ‘Bongadashi’ is “a pure British reggae-funk stomper full of swagger and verve”. The song is about the inherent danger on the streets whether in London or Port of Spain in Tobago, the home of Hempolics collaborator Franz. “When fear comes out of the blue, when you’re walking down the street and someone starts on you not sure whether you’re safe or not on the streets – Bongadashi coming,” Grippa adds.
