While preparing his November New York concert, the Tema rap star went to London to produce shady and energetic visuals.
With a busy year coming to an end for him, between the release of Live From Nkrumah Krom Vol II: Home Run and the resulting awards, such as the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2019, Kwesi Arthur still has some things to say. Here, he unveils a harmonious and powerful freestyle, from which a certain maturity can be seen in the words and sounds. “Zombie” addresses success and money but also a star system difficult to live, deeply altering his relationships. Aware of his new status and what he represents, a “ghetto boy” today at the top of the Ghanaian rap industry, he says it all on a TwoBars instrumental.
The video is produced by Frmwrkldn, a London-based creative collective that has also worked with Jacob Banks or Piers James. It is available on the Ground Up Chale platform and label.
