Ghana’s music scene is about to witness a remarkable resurgence as Shortman, a veteran musician and one-half of the iconic group Sassquard, now known as Squadges, gears up to release his latest solo track titled “Don’t Be Stupid.”

Scheduled for release in April 2024, this new single not only marks Shortman’s return to the limelight but also carries a powerful message advocating for mutual respect between generations.

In an exclusive interview, Shortman revealed that the inspiration behind the title “Don’t Be Stupid” stems from his desire to address the issue of disrespect prevalent in today’s society.

He emphasizes that the song serves as a reminder that those who fail to show respect should not be considered wise. Through his music, Shortman aims to bridge the gap between the young and the old, stressing the importance of reciprocal respect and understanding.

Shortman’s journey back into the music industry signifies his unwavering dedication to his craft and his determination to reclaim his position as a formidable force in the Ghanaian music scene.

After a period of silence, he is ready to make his presence felt once again with this powerful and timely release.

Accompanying Shortman on this musical journey is his longtime collaborator, Fiifi Selah, formerly known as Scooby. Together, they form the dynamic duo known as Squadges.

Both artists are set to release solo singles in April, paving the way for the highly anticipated EP that will drop later in the month.

The story of Squadges traces back to their roots in Takoradi, where the original group, Sass Squad, first emerged onto the music scene.

Comprising members such as Scooby, Atsu Koliko, Sane Dog, and Shortman, with occasional features from Olasty Bingo, Sass Squad made waves with their distinctive sound and electrifying performances.

Now, as Squadges, Shortman and Fiifi Selah are poised to continue their musical journey with renewed vigor and passion. Their comeback in 2022 with the EP “SQUADGES” served as a testament to their enduring talent and creativity, garnering acclaim from fans and critics alike.

As anticipation builds for the release of “Don’t Be Stupid” and the forthcoming EP, fans of Ghanaian music can look forward to witnessing the triumphant return of Shortman and Fiifi Selah to the forefront of the industry. With their powerful messages, Squadges is set to leave an indelible mark on the music landscape once again.
