It was during their first trip to Ghana that Orti and Passi crossed paths with many artists including Kwabena Kwabena.
The current passes immediately and in less than two hours they are off to the studio for a first recording session.
During this musical night, a friendship was born between the three men and the desire to do more collaborations.

The magic happens and the title CHOCOLAT is born, the clip will be shot a few weeks later in Ghana and sung for the first time during the concert IN ACCRA.
