I’m the only artist that can change the music industry – Kula

All that went on during Kula's Kumasi tour

When you consider rising MCs in the game, undoubtedly, Kula is on that list in a saturated market filled with trendy musicians, the Santa Maria native brings substance, originality, and introspective lyricism.

Back in 2018, when he released Muurder, it proved his ability to usher in a sense of social significance to the culture; which was refreshing, appreciated, and much needed.

Spitting rhymes about relatable issues in this society is one of the reasons he’s been able to successfully connect across generations.


Although, it’s been more than a decade since he first hopped on the music scene, he’s proven to have a staying power as one of the hottest rappers in the game after being the first-ever rapper to win the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs) Unsung Artiste of the Year in 2019 with his freestyle MUSIGA High School.

They say to who more is given, much is expected, with the pressure that comes after winning an award, one is faced with proving how deserving they are of the award received.

Celebrating his win birthed the single One, embodying the feel of Afrobeat rhythm and fast-paced rap, ‘One’ is the antithesis to an azonto ballad, yet it harnesses the same range of emotion.

Kula being a devout performer, seemingly on a never-ending mission to make a serious impact with his music, barely taking a breath in between, but finding a fresh one to deliver for 2020 is his latest prophetic single named Meye Yie featuring reigning best rapper in Ghana, Medikal.

After its release, Accra having received its fair share of the new inspiring piece.

With the aim to inspire and change lives with his music across the country and the world as a whole, Kumasi was the next city to have a taste of his lyrical aptness.
