Gift of God is ghana’s Mawcom X’s debut project he made as he lived through a tough moment after losing his mum. Thus this project served the artist in the purest of forms; giving him an outlet.
Mawcom X is a hip-hop/afrofusion artist with eleven years of experience in
the music industry spent mastering his craft as a songwriter/record producer & culture architect.
His five tracked EP entirely produced by the superstar producer Kuvie (Sarkodie, Pappy Kojo, Joey B, Efya…) consists of a smooth range of songs that ease you in from highlife infused hip-hop beats, hard-hitting rap bars, classic afrobeats and groovy melodies that give props to the recent Ghaianan sounds that have made their way across very many borders, spreading the palm wine music gospel.
Easing you into the listening journey, Mawcom X teams up with $pacely and Iye on “Talk Talk”. Named after him, the second track “Mawuli” encapsulates the state he was in as he pushed through the pain to birth something beautiful from the hand he had been dealt. The third track, featuring Kirani Ayat, is a cool hip-hop song that keeps the level of the groove of the tape so far. In the fourth track, Kuvie introduces a welcome reggae vibe and La Meme Gang’s $pacely jumps on the record. Eventually, Mawcom X enlists Nigerian born Boj & Ghana’s $pacely for a more laid back afrobeats vibe on “Body”.
According to the artist, “the name is a triple entendre which implies that firstly; to be alive is a Gift Of God, secondly, our ability to create is a Gift Of God and finally Mawuli literally translates into “God exists” so my existence is a Gift Of God to the world”.
