VIDEO: Blitz the Ambassador — "Akwaaba" (live)

Check out Blitz as he drops it in his native tongue.

Here’s some video I shot on Saturday at the final installment of Weeksville Heritage Center’s Garden Party Series. It was my first time seeing Blitz, and he’s an incredibly charismatic performer.  Check him out as he spits in his native Twi.
