Ghanaian rapper and lyricist, Emmanuel Kofi Botwe, known in showbiz as Kwaw Kese, recently shared the inspiration behind his latest hit, “Awoyo Sofo,” during an interview on Y107.9FM’s ‘Dryve Of Your Lyfe’ with host Kojo Manuel. The song sheds light on the disturbing influx of misleading religious leaders, whom Kwaw Kese labeled as ‘false prophets,’ reflecting his firsthand experience and observations.

Kwaw Kese highlighted the term “Awoyo,” which originates from the Central Region, and its significance in the context of his song. He recounted an unsettling encounter with an unidentified pastor who claimed to have had a vision about him, prompting him to visit the pastor. Despite his initial skepticism, he was persuaded by his wife to attend. However, the claims made by the pastor were debunked upon further investigation, leading Kwaw Kesse to label this encounter as an interaction with an ‘Awoyo Sofo.’ “I was told by a group of people a few years ago that their pastor had a vision about me so I was supposed go and see him. I don’t believe in such things but I was persuaded by my wife to go and listen to what he had to say.”

The rap track “Awoyo Sofo” features an impressive set of bars from Kofi Mole and is produced and mastered by Songo. The song serves as a platform for Kwaw Kese to address the prevalence of false prophets and the impact of their misleading practices.

The collaboration between Kwaw Kese and Kofi Mole in “Awoyo Sofo” has garnered attention for its vibrant fusion of hip-hop and highlife, celebrating Ghanaian culture while delivering a powerful message of self-awareness and social commentary. Through clever wordplay, infectious melodies, and dynamic production, the artists craft a captivating narrative that resonates with listeners on multiple levels. “I get to the church and the prophesy was a lie; the pastor said my family from Agona Nyakrom are plotting to end my life. Meanwhile, my family is not from that town.”

Kwaw Kese’s decision to address this sensitive topic through his music reflects his commitment to using his platform to shed light on societal issues. “Awoyo Sofo” serves as a reflection on the complexities of modern-day society, touching on themes of hypocrisy, corruption, and the pursuit of wealth.
