Malawian dancehall-gospel artist Nanto Peetah is gearing up to release his first full-length studio album this year. The project – dubbed Ministry – will feature African artists Mady P (Don Gogo), Princi Musiq, Ababa Surgent and Jah Flavour; as well as Jamaican lyricist Karamanti.
Prayer Babes, the title of the just released single done with Karamanti, is already getting a lot of attention because so far it is the only international collaboration on the LP. Furthermore, a lot is being said about just how hard Karamanti delivered on the track.
On the afro-beat fused rhythm, the woman, often referred to as the most underrated female lyricist in Jamaican dancehall, asks:
Weh yu know bout prayer babes
when yu go inna di spirit and yu prayer blaze
time stop yu transform to a higher place
only ting weh matter now a word play
so weh yu say?
Call di name a di God yu praise
say it loud & proud mek heaven shake
gratitude yu fi use na na delay
yu cyaa loose if yu choose Jah Jah any day
