The Fortunate 707
Shedding more light on the EP , Fortune Dane indicated that ‘The Fortunate 707’ is meant to Unite people through music.
“I aim to unite people with the songs. The songs on the EP are songs each and everyone can relate to. On the EP you’ll never hear me brag about money or talk about my luxuries. I’m talking about real life stuff – Love , Life , Friends , Broken Hearts …“
Fortune Dane went on to reveal that what makes the EP even more relatable is the fact that it wasn’t planned. It is a project of songs he recorded at various points in time and at various phases in his life. Some of the songs are as far as one year apart from each other. Some had been already released but most will be heard for the first time . The coming together of the entire EP was just ‘FORTUNATE‘.
Though Fortune Dane is largely known for producing or releasing straight up hardcore hip hop songs and can be referred to as one of the household names when it comes to producing trap music in Ghana, the situation is quite different on ‘The Fortunate 707’ as fans should expect to 7 rap songs and 7 RnB type songs (Hence the title: 7 0 7 )
” Expect a bit of hardcore , but you’ll get more of love , attachment and closure to your daily experiences . It wont make you feel alone, you will feel hope and not feel alone.
Sometimes people feel you are a star so you have no problems. At the end of the day , we are all human , we all love , we feel less appreciated by some , we feel disrespected by some … money doesn’t change that… we are all in this , we all go through it. Listeners are fans should know that they are not alone. This EP is to encourage you”
