The lockdown, experienced worldwide during the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic was an unusual and scary period. Lots of people found avenues to let out their anxiety and fears and for Tripcy and Mega EJ; it was during that period that they realized it was finally time to work together.
Prince Selorm Gayome who goes by the stage name Tripcy and Johnson Elikem Kondobrey known as Mega EJ have known each other since their time in Kpando Senior High School in the Volta Region where they both discovered music as a potential career path. With 10 years under their belt, making music and dropping singles on their own, the two never really entertained the thought of actually making music together until the lockdown period.
Fueled by the desire to put out extraordinary music that sounds both unique and accepting to music lovers and the fact that they both work constantly with the producer Necktunez, Mega who describes himself as an alternative artiste and Tripcy, a more commercially appealing Afrobeats artiste put together their creativity and talent to give music lovers a 6 track EP of amazing vocals
and top-notch production from Necktunez.
“Your Place” is the first single released from the EP and is currently available on streaming platforms everywhere. The song is a reassuring song to black women empowering them and letting them know that they are special and hold a special place for black men. In Tripcy’s words, “We den dem go die. We no dey go anywhere.”
