Ed Sheeran has showcased his love for Ghana in a summery “feel good” music video filmed in the country to accompany a song sung in one of its dialects.
The Suffolk singer took to Instagram last night to announce his latest Youtube release – the video for Bibia Ye Ye, which is Twi for “All will be well”.
Ed, who grew up in Framlingham, visited Ghana during his year away from the limelight, when he met up with Fuse ODG, who is of Ghanaian descent, and Killbeatz, who is said to be the country’s most sought after AfroBeats producer.
During his visit, he said he had been “exposed to such wonderful culture, food, music and scenery”.
“Me and Fuse wanted to showcase all of these things in a music video to show off the beauty of it,” Ed said on Instagram.

“This isn’t a single, but it’s the summer, and why not have a summer song come out with a feel good video for people to enjoy.”
Speaking on BBC Radio 1 Extra earlier this year, he said of Bibia Ye Ye: “I wrote a song in Twi, the Ghanaian dialect in Ghana, at Fuse’s house with all his mates. That was probably the most fun experience because like ... being in the studio with someone like Fuse is just a party the whole time.”
