Kweku Smoke tells Apple Music about His Album’s Chart Success in Ghana

It’s very hard to penetrate out here in Ghana with trap music and more of the hip-hop stuff, which I do more of, but it’s finally good to see the people responding and enjoying the music. We’re going up, and I’m really happy about it and happy for the whole hip-hop culture.

Kweku Smoke tells Apple Music about the Meaning Behind his Album, ‘Kweku Jesus’

Everything [on the album] is arranged like it was in the Bible. We all know when Jesus was born, so track one is things like that, down to ‘Nkorabonesem’: we know about Jesus going out to preach, so that talks about it. My part is like the street connected with the gospel – teaching, motivating the youth.

Kweku Smoke tells Apple Music why He Opted for No Collaborations on ‘Kweku Jesus’

I personally think Jesus did it all alone—it was about him, it wasn’t about anyone else. He fought the Disciples, but he was the leader. He led everything and did everything alone, it’s just that he had to supervise here and there. Because this album shares more of my life story, I didn’t want features because it’s kind of personal. I wanted to do everything by myself, and tell the story as I’ve seen it. I felt like this is my whole story in one album… I decided to personally put my feelings, put my whole life story into this and just doing it alone, that way people can get more attached to it.
