It’s been just a few years since charismatic Ghanaian singer-songwriter ELi took up a solo career – after training for a while in school choirs. With each new song from him, we can see his decision – quite against his parents’ will – was right.

But the stage has become his main focus, as that’s where he can communicate his feelings and emotions to the listeners directly. His latest song, “W.I.L.D” demonstrates ELi’s search for elegant simplicity and authenticity, although it was recorded in the studio and is actually a part of the official sountrack for the new movie Rebecca.

Produced by GMK, this song lasts just over two minutes, but ELi’s appealing vocals and elegant bluesy arrangment will hypnotize you before you get to the middle of the song.
