Kwesi Arthur Set To Release New Album

Kwesi Arthur is set to release an album titled “This is Not The Tape “. He posted on his official twitter account adding “this one is exclusively for my fans”.

The young Ghanaian artist hasn’t been on the limelight as he used to be but an album early this year means he’s fully back. He announced the album will be released on the 17th of January, 2024 but did not specify the number of songs that will be featured on the album.

Ghanaian rapper and businessman Sarkodie, who Kwesi Arthur collaborated with on the smash song “Grind Day” with Medikal, is credited with discovering the musician. 

After listening to Drake’s debut album, Thank Me Later, Kwesi Arthur began writing raps.

2017 saw the release of the lead track from his debut EP, Live from Nkrumah called “Grind Day”. GroundUp Chale, a social movement, funded the release of the record, which was put out by his independent group. He later released the remix for “Grind Day”, featuring Sarkodie and Medikal.

Kwesi Arthur has collaborated with various Ghanaian musicians, including Sarkodie, Medikal, KiDi, Jason E LA, R2Bees, B4bonah, M3dal, M.anifest, EL, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale and South African rapper Nasty C . He received a 2018 BET Award nomination for Best International Act.

One of Ghana’s most popular musicians, Kwesi Arthur has received praise and recognition on a global scale for his work. One of the most streamed African songs on Apple Music in 2020 was his song “Live From The 233”.

In addition to receiving multiple awards, Arthur was nominated for a Viewer’s Choice Best International Act at the 2018 BET Awards and won Rapper of the Year and Hip Hop Song of the Year at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

He became the second Ghanaian rapper to be nominated for BET Hip Hop Awards Ceremony after Sarkodie‘s candidature in 2019.

Tema was the place of Kwesi Arthur’s birth on December 18, 1998. Raised in Tema Community 9, he is the second of four children, having a brother called Benjamin Danso Arthur, who is also a musician.

Kwesi’s ambitions to continue his education by attending the University of Ghana to study psychology and law after completing his high school education at Temasco in 2013 came to an abrupt end because of lack of funding. This made the rapper think about accepting a Tema security guard job offer.

After realising that security wasn’t his true passion, Kwesi Arthur accepted the position and worked there for a day before deciding to focus on his musical career at a nearby recording studio.

Kwesi Arthur has performed on different platforms and has also embarked on some tours including The Ghana meet Naija concert in 2018, Ghana party in the park London, One Africa Festival Dubai, Afro Nation Festival Portugal, Detty Rave Accra Afro Nation Festival Puerto Rico and many more.

In 2023 Kwesi Arthur realeased single “pain interlude” which was streamed by his fans worldwide despite him moving away from music for a while. He has a strong fanbase in Ghana, Nigeria and across the globe. He has significantly influenced the youth through his songs and gives motivation considering his journey and how far he has come.

Recently the young artist thanked his fans and everyone who has been supporting him during his trying times and urged his fans to keep supporting him. With his incoming album hopefully, he will be on the right track to stay in the limelight and keep releasing hit songs for his fans who through trying times still support him and wish him well.

We look forward to his album in the new year and how his fans are going to embrace this album.
