He also rhymes about those in our lives who have nurtured and helped us grow, such as our parents and family. When reflecting on her rhymes, the Dutch Ghanaian native says, “the people who provided for me mean the world to me”.

The Inspiration Was A “Breeze”

Kay Slice explains the inspiration behind ‘Breeze’ and how the song came together… 

The song came to me during my recent stay in Ghana. It was like Mama Ghana was talking to me. I came up with the melody and bassline, and from there, it was just a matter of perfecting it with Bora and the band. The song is about giving tribute and honour to our providers, to the people that nurtured and helped us become who we are today. It’s also about that urge I and a lot of people around me have to return the favour and provide for the people that provided for us”.

Kay Slice’s inspiration and passion are expressed within the accompanying “Breeze” music video. Directed by booming Accra-based cinematographer Edward Pappoe, the visuals were shot in Ghana’s Aburi Botanical Gardens. The clip beautifully captures the relationship and connection between a mother and her young son. Featuring the timeless century-old botanical garden, the visual provides the perfect calm yet peacefully vibrant backdrop. As a result, it brings the track and its message to life, which Kay Slice describes as “the perfect fit for this song.”
