Neither once nor twice have Ghanaian artists been compelled to explain lyrics to their songs, something which will not end yet as well. The heydays of Charles Kojo Fosu otherwise known as Daddy Lumba and Nana Acheampong were characterized by craftily created sexually explicit lyrics which were somehow left to slip under the carpet whilst other artists with similar content tried very hard to justify such works.
Barely a week into the release of the instant hit song TONGA which features Sarkodie, Ghanaian artist signed to D Black’s Black Avenue Music, Joey B is undoubtedly enjoying the biggest rave any artist would love to enjoy as the song has already become a street anthem for the Christmas and festive season.
TONGA, a street word which was made popular by Ghanaian actor Kwaku Manu in one of his usual comedy movies is used to refer to the female genital organ (vagina), however, Joey B just like any other musician has explained the word.
Speaking to Amanda Jissih on E Talk on GhOne, Joey B in a crafty manner explained TONGA as just an abbreviation for “The Only Nice Girl Around” and not what many were thinking.
The question that remains is whether this explanation will somehow fit for the song as it virtually has no correlation with the content of the song.
