Let me introduce you to Anita Blay or as you might know her by her stage name – CocknBullKid. She makes good pop music that will give pleasure to your ears. Her music is basically a celebration of her life–the teenage depression; the colourful confusion of her Catholic-turned-Pentecostal upbringing; her Ghanaian uncles and their hi-life band in Accra; and her insistence that her songs should turn negative emotions into high-saturation pop songs that will turn the FM dial kaleidoscopic when they inevitably perform a massive ambush of the charts.

If you like Lily Allen, Little Boots, and Julian Peretta then I’m sure you will like her too! Her lead single ‘Hold On To Your Misery’ is what she would call as the ‘anti-anthem’ song.

If that doesn’t convince you enough, perhaps you should listen another track simply called ‘Asthma Attack.’ Make sure to check out her captivating live performance of ‘He Said’ – a cover of Plan B’s song.

She’s definitely our answer to the retired Lily Allen. Let’s face it she’s here to stay and she’s going to rule the charts. Anyway,  you can pre-order her debut album ‘Adulthood’ now on HMV, Play.com, Amazon or iTunes. It will official drop on May 23rd, 2011.
