Artist: Kojey Radical
Song: Kwame Nkrumah
Producer: Lupus Cain
The undefeatable Kojey Radical is at his strongest and most daring yet in new single ‘Kwame Nkrumah’. Referencing the man who led Ghana to independence in 1957, Kojey blends nimble lyricism with sheer vocal power to produce an amazingly touching piece of art.
Speaking on the record, Radical has said: “I wrote this record for my Dad. Kwame Nkrumah is the first president of Ghana and the man that led Ghana to independence. My dad would speak so highly of him.
“Echoing with pride what Kwame had done to unite African Nations. I wanted to continue that level of pride, do something that young minds and forward thinkers could rally behind… Like a soundtrack to human resilience. Something my people could be proud of.”
