Renowned rapper and singer, M.anifest has released his fifth studio album titled, “Madina to the Universe (MTTU).”
Creating his fifth studio album while at under lockdown at home gave Ghanaian artist M.anifest to unpack what the concept of ‘home’ really means to him.
“Madina is the name of the name of the neighbourhood I was born and grew up in,”.
“Even though it’s in Accra, Madina is my village within the city. Both sets of my grandparents lived in the same neighbourhood, two minutes away from each other.
Further, it was a developing neighbourhood as I was growing up; a colourful mix. Because this album was born during the pandemic, it was important for me to title it, “Madina to the Universe”.
The ambition [you develop] as you go from your local place, and these ideas that you develop from childhood in that local place—now it becomes something that you are trying to take to the universe, to go beyond. But it always comes from somewhere.”

As a child, M.anifest frequently traveled to the US to visit his grandparents, before eventually moving there to study at 17; it was there where he began his professional pursuit of music, and discovered how to marry his upbringing with the influences of his environment.
