Ghanaian rapper Kwame Yesu has released his new and debut single for the year ADWUMA. This single follows Kwame Yesu’s 2022 releases, SuMoMi and ISSUES.
Riding on a drill beat produced by Ghanaian-German based producer Robin Rozay, Kwame Yesu explores the themes of hard work, courage and resilience, the qualities attributed to a young person hustling in the streets of Accra while being stereotyped by the Police.
Speaking about the ideation behind the record, Kwame Yesu recounts how a random police stop inspired ADWUMA.
According to him; “We got stopped and harassed by the police, stereotyped as hoodlums due to our looks and dread hairstyle. As a result of this incident, my team and myself kept talking about what had just happened. Before arriving at our destination, I had composed the melody for the hook and few rap lines. I later met up with my new found collaborator Robin Rozay a Ghanaian- German based producer for recording session and completed the record.”
