Beach Party Playlist

There is a scene in Midwife to Destiny which I absolutely love. The heroine, Ora and her cousin, Esi hold a party on a beautiful beach in Ghana on a glorious day. Where there’s a party, music fills the air. I mention  three hot Ghanaian artists in the scene, but I don’t specify the songs . Until now.

I chose songs that I have gotten up and danced to on more than one occasion. The type of music is called Ghanaian hiplife. By the way Wizkid is from Nigeria so I took grooving to an international level. I hope you enjoy.

R2Bees featuring Wizkid – Dance

Ruff N Smooth – Sex Machine

Samini – Sweet Mistake

There was a slow song that Ora and Jason danced to but I didn’t name it in the book. Here’s the big reveal of Ora and Jason’s song.

Eric Clapton – Wonderful Tonight

“Do we have enough food?” Ora asked Esi.

“I think so. I ordered extra just in case. You know there’re always party crashers, especially at fabulous ones on the beach. How many of them do you know?”

Ora observed everyone having a good time. Some were dancing, some eating, and others had wandered down to the water’s edge. “About seven.”

“I know fifteen or so. Throwing a party is an interesting phenomenon; you never know what or who you’re going to get. I see a cute guy I’ve never met before. I’m going over dance with him. The spinner is playing my favourite R2Bees song.”

Ora laughed at her cousin who’d started dancing as she walked toward the stranger. The poor man would never know what hit him.

Rhonke came up to her. “Nice party.”

“Thank you. I’m glad you could make it.”

“Thanks for inviting me. The food’s delicious and the music is keeping me from sitting down. I love the ocean.”

“Make sure you have some cake. The more that’s left over, the more I’ll have to eat, not that I’d mind.”
Ora circulated to different groups making sure they were having a good time. Jason would be around later in the afternoon after finishing work, but she longed to see him now.

A group of her friends asked her to dance and they got down to a misinterpreted Ruff n’ Smooth song about a sex machine.

She happened to glance up while talking to a colleague of Esi’s and noticed Jason walking toward her. When their eyes met, she became giddy. His full time job should be to stay by her side, instead of saving lives.
