LET IT GO: KWEKU SMOKE’S DRILL RAVE IS ON A DIFFERENT NOTE

  • 2021-04-26

Without a doubt, Kweku Smoke is one of the ambassadors of the new drill vibe that has taken over the streets in Ghana. Though his lyrics appear fierce, Kweku Smoke does not rap about drugs, violence, or hype gangsterism like the dark drill music from the Western World. The Drill genre has existed in Ghana way before the ‘Kumericans’ gave it a push into the limelight“When we started drill here, it was hard for people to even understand this kind of music. Ghanaians, we don’t like hip-hop, it’s not our thing. But gradually, drill is taking over, most young people are doing it now. It’s a good way to promote hip-hop, and in our drill, you can feel the local vibe,” he told Pan African Music. Inspired by his late brother, Smoke’s debut album, ‘Snoop Forever’ released in December last year shares intriguing street tales about happenings in the ghetto world of Ghana. The young versatile rapper is currently out with a brand-new music video for his track, “Let If Go’, off his debut, which features South African rapper, Emtee.
