Combining schooling and music has never been an easy task, but when you do it and get the endorsement from rappers like Sarkodie, then you should know you are doing something right.

This is the story of KNUST undergraduate, Paul Amankwa, better known as Kweku Smoke.

The young rap artist grew up learning music from his senior brother who was living with their dad in Accra.

He says “I used to watch him rap to songs and I learnt it watching him
do that anytime I was on vacation and I visit them in Accra
”.

Kweku Smoke added, “I don’t know how I did that, but I knew almost every lyric to songs and I used to just rap lines of Obrafour’s songs as well as VIP’s, to my friends –and then even write some of the music for people to do photocopies and sell. It was the flex of our time”.

The budding act acknowledged the endless support of Aha Yed3 artist, Nana Boroo in his young career.

From meeting Nana Boroo in a studio to Nana Boroo guiding him in the music path, Kweku Smoke holds the Tema singer in high esteem.

I dropped a song in 2015 with Flowking Stone of Bradez fame but it didn’t really work because I didn’t have solid management by then. I continued rapping and recording as an underground artist with my friend from high school with whom I built a studio with, till a friend introduced me to Nana Boroo and we began spending time together in
the studio
.

Nana Boroo enjoyed my music and decided to sign me and guide me through my music life

Budding young artiste, Nar’h, is on a journey of challenging the status quo when it comes to the current trends on the Ghanaian music scene.

He assumes multiple musical capabilities of rapping and singing and has eventually invented a genre-bending sound that he calls ‘Trapsoul’.

A stunt like that is an obvious demonstration of his ambitiousness and trail blazing intentions, typical of most music legends.

Nar’h affirmed this new alternative genre when he released ‘Mutual’ on 4/4/19 which features its producer, Vanilson from Angola.

The song, ‘Mutual’, mixed and mastered by Plugn6ix (the producer duo of Plugwill and Sixtrees ), is a slow melodic lovers tiff which describes a young boy and girl sharing the same feelings towards each other hence the title, “Mutual “.

The latest signee of Swag City Entertainment Company, Araya Afrika, is a young songstress whose artistry bears exact resemblance to the meaning of her debut single, ‘Ogya’, which literally translates as ‘Fire’.

Produced by Apya, ‘Ogya’ is a song infused with our traditionally authentic African drums. The soul-awakening sounds from the drumlines is a complete chant, depicting the African culture.

Araya’s vocal abilities suspends on a wide range and pitch, allowing her to freely express herself in each line of this song through her gifted melodic compositions.

Her display of tactful musical phrasing, breathe control and self-awareness, is something to write home about on this record.

The single, ‘Ogya’, basically talks about Africa, the culture, the art, the people, the energy and the perception it has on a global narrative. It resonates with the African tradition, our faith, fears and beliefs.

Araya Afrika brings to play a new vibe, deviating from the popular genres, styles and sounds that Ghanaians are accustomed to and engaging the totality of the African rhythm and musical conversation, in her unique style of artistic delivery.

Prospects are high for this young budding talent upon being earmarked as a refreshing breeze over the music landscape of Ghana and Africa at large.
