A gonizing is the latest musical offering from Danish-Ghanaian reggae singer Martei.

Produced by Delroy “Phatta” Pottinger, the single was released on June 30. Drum and bass legends Sly & Robbie were also very instrumental in the production.

“The song is about stopping and taking the time to engage, wake up and smell the coffee, as opposed taking a passive approach to life and romance, and also leave space for magic,” said Martei.

The singer, whose full name is Martei Korley, was born in Demark to a Danish mother and a Ghanaian father.

Producer “Phatta” Pottinger weighed in on what it was like working with Martei.

“I have known Martei for a long time now and we have always talked about doing some work together, and now we have found the right track. This is a new age steppers version of a lovers' rock that I used to listen to, so we worked with the studio one concept, but everything is fresh. we made it dubby, like a cross between King Tubby's and Studio One,” he said.

Martei made his debut in 2009 with Take Time. His other singles include Toxic Love, Couldn't Be Wrong and Concrete Flower.
