Ghanaian-UK artist Enock Baabi, professionally known as Alinkin, is setting the music scene ablaze with his latest release, “Atenga.” Born and raised in Sunyani Barracks, Ghana, Alinkin’s musical journey has taken him from friendly rap battles in his early years to becoming a notable figure in the global music arena.
“Atenga” is a dynamic fusion of Ghanaian hiplife/afrobeats and the globally acclaimed Amapiano sound. Drawing inspiration from local legends such as Gyedu Blay Ambulley and Reggie Rockstone, as well as international icons like Tupac, Nas, and Lil Wayne, Alinkin delivers a track that not only celebrates his diverse influences but also carries a powerful message of self-belief and perseverance.
The song encourages listeners to remain true to themselves despite doubts from others, embodying the spirit of “Atenga,” a phrase Alinkin learned from his mother, symbolizing resilience and accountability. The track pays homage to the late Nana Tuffuor’s “Atenga,” adding a sentimental touch to the vibrant composition.
Alinkin’s collaboration with producer Twisted Beats has resulted in a unique Amapiano style that is both catchy and dance-inducing. “Atenga” promises a musical journey filled with positivity and good vibes, reflecting Alinkin’s commitment to delivering impactful and uplifting music to his audience.
