Of What Did I say? Mandie Mae Lyrics

Scrolling through the internet I came across this breath of fresh air, an Afrodancehall track by a Chipinge born, Bulawayo raised artist, Nomagugu Amanda Nkomo aka Mandie Mae (Bad Gyal) titled What did I say?

I have had this track on repeat since I heard it, I love the vocals and the calypso inspired rhythm has me shaking my head to the beat and singing along to the catchy chorus… What did I say yuh yuh Say yuh yuh say yuh yuh

Mandie Mae says this song is about pursuing your passion despite the people holding you back…

What Did I Say? is track 31 of Mandy Mae’s EP titled What Did I Say

Mandie Mae What did I say

If you are wondering why Afrodancehall/Reggae its because she is in love with the Jamaican culture whose roots lie in Afro-tradition and Africa. Her musical inspiration comes from the likes of Busy Signal, Patoranking, Rudeboy and the late legends Bob Marley and Lucky Dube.

This 19-year-old empress, actress, dancer and pianist is fast making a name for herself having had her music top the radio charts on SkyzMetro a radio station for Bulawayo Metropolitan and in the spirit of celebrating artists, I am definitely crowning this Bad Gyal the next Queen Of The Dancehall… What do you say?
