Power to The People by AJ Nelson; a Ghanaian Hiphop, Soul and Afro beat musician has been making waves on radio stations​ and music charts in Ghana following ​the song’s​ release late in 2015​.​

The single which features award winning female performer​ Wiyaala​
​is off AJ Nelson’s debut Album titled Soul Food which was released October 10, 2015​.​

iTunes ranked ​Power to The People​ number 3 on ​its​ list of most downloaded songs in ​Ghana in ​the last week of November​ 2015 while​​ the site​
ranked ​the song​ ​as best new music of the week​ from AJ Nelson’s Soul Food​.​
​Power To the People is produced by Fizzi Ankude.​

AJ Nelson and Wiyaala connected when they first performed on the bill of the same concert​:
at Alliance Francaise​ in Accra, Ghana.​ From there on they struck an acquaintance which led to AJ​ Nelson developing an interest in working with Wiyaala on a track off his debut album. He ​initially
wanted her to feature on his then studio track titled Dream.

“Wiyaala however had other plans after listening to other tracks of AJ Nelson and decided ​the​ track Power to The People really resonated well with her​, she settled to sing on that track instead”​​ according to Joshua Kofi Tetteh Akwada, Manager of AJ Nelson​ who says the two artists have such great cohesion, something that became more evident when they performed at a concert at 233 Jazz Bar and Grill in Accra, Ghana.
