WASHINGTON, DC – (August 2012) — Soulful Afro-Pop Inspirational Singer/Songwriter TolumiDE is at it again! She releases “More than you’ll ever know” – Single and Official Remix Video from ‘My Love’ album featuring award winning Ghanaian Hip Hop artist, D-Black – Da Ghana Bwouy, BET’s Best International Act: Africa Award Nominee 2011.
“More than you’ll ever know” produced by Terry Poindexter, is a sultry love song declaring true love ‘Me Do Wo’, in the midst of common challenges couples face every day. The blend of English, Ghanaian (Twi) and Nigerian (Yoruba) languages and D-Black’s hit rap verse gives the listener an emotional connection with the power of love and cross-cultural fusion.
“Working with TolumiDE was very different as she showed a lot of professionalism… I have been a fan of her music before we met at the 2010 Channel O Awards in South Africa; I felt it was the right timing for this collaboration to happen. The message of the song is also true- Relationships don’t always go right and no one is perfect, however love is the key to having a successful relationship. That’s the story we told through this song and I loved every bit of making this song and the video…” – D-Black, Artist
