Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur has released the official music video for “Nirvana” featuring Kofi Mole.
Carving his own path in hip-hop, the dynamic mix of hard-hitting back beats and warm afro-infused melodies that have become synonymous with Kwesi’s name, soak this latest release in feel-good energy.
Releasing infectious multi-lingual music, sung in Twi and English, “Nirvana” proudly projects Kwesi’s cultural pride alongside a sense of empowerment and determination to overcome. With an assist from fellow Ghanaian trendsetter Kofi Mole, Kwesi Arthur continues to produce the meditative yet swaggering stand-out form he is quickly becoming renowned for – a sound that is seeing him ascend to rising heights in the genre.
Kwesi’s multi-dimensional grasp of genres and worlds has seen him sell out shows in London and New York, gaining critical attention across the likes of i-D and NEW WAVE MAGAZINE to THE NEW YORKER all proclaiming Kwesi as one of Ghana’s most important and resonant new voices.
Added to a fashion profile that’s already seen collaborations with the VOGUE-featured Ghanaian label Atto Tetteh, the young artist from Tema is balancing huge global expectations with the kind of humility and panache that continues to define his legacy, as the young star’s sprawling fanbase (1.5M+ IG) sees Kwesi marked as one of the brightest talents from the new generation of artists coming out of African continent right now.
