Manny Norté is a jack of all trades in this music ting, from radio to presenting, DJ sets, and label A&R. He’s put his talented connects to use enlisting London’s Tion Wayne, Lagos’ rising star Rema, and Atlanta’s 6LACK for his self-produced track “4 am”.
The intercontinental link-up occurred in Manny’s homeland Ghana, specifically in his parent’s hometown of Teshie. The video directed by Meiji Alabi captures the true beauty of the seaside town. Effortlessly complementing the track that bridges together each artists’ musical style.
When speaking on the track earlier this week Manny Norte shared that his vision is to “bring different cultures and worlds together” and he’s proving to do exactly that with this first release. We look forward to seeing what else there is to come.

Ok….I NEVER write long captions, but for this I had to! Just this once! 👇🏾 . . Amidst everything that’s going on, hopefully this will put a smile on your face and make you dance small small! I have literally put my whole life into this music game in many ways, so what is happening now is quite surreal!! I’m soooo excited, and deeply appreciate every God given opportunity that’s ever been afforded to me to allow these moments to even possibly happen. A song I produced & put together with additional production from @marshallmusic & @p2jmusic is my way of bridging the gap of cultures and making great music! 🇬🇧🇬🇭🇳🇬🇺🇸Video directed by the great @mejialabi and it was a major blessing and a dream come true to shoot it in the area where my parents grew up in Ghana. 🙏🏾 . Feeling really blessed to have some of the planet’s most exciting fresh artists on the record. @6lack is undoubtedly one of the hottest crop of special artists who can sing/rap and song write at the highest of levels and has excited me with his music since he has emerged! @tionwayne is the one artist you can rely on to give you that killer cold verse and vibe! I remember watching him at his sold out show in Brixton Academy and chatting with my brother Twin B about how much of a star he is. And as for @heisrema this guy is a future megastar and will be one of the most talented, stirring, charismatic artists to ever come out of the continent of Africa…. and they all came to my hometown in #Accra/ #Teshie #Ghana to shoot the video!! That’s real ❤️ Your love and support for me on this project would mean the world. I’m very proud of it. #4am Song/video drops tomorrow!! Hold me DOWN!!!! Thanks to my whole team on this helping dreams come reality 🙏🏾 #TheNameYouCanTrust for the people!!
