Veteran Ghanaian musician, Abrewa Nana is on a campaign to raise funds to fly fellow musician Okomfour Kwade3 abroad for proper healthcare.

According to the rapper, she believes strongly that a change of environment will be  good therapy for Okomfour Kwade3.

This comes after yet another disturbing photo of Okomfour who has been battling mental illness for a while now, made its way online a couple of days ago. The photo has since gone viral and sparked a lot of concern about his health.

Reacting to the photo and sharing her concern for her brother, Abrewa Nana called on fellow musicians, stakeholders and the general public to come to his aid before it’s too late.

Read her Facebook post below:

“Okomfo Kwade3, has been battling mental illness for a while now. Just last week,i was on phone with a friend abroad confessing that if i had the means one of the things i would loved to do, is to fly Okomfour Kwade3 abroad ,because i believe strongly that change of environment would be a good therapy for him to destress(eat well,sleep good,go shopping,fun activities,meet new people,seek counselling ,record ,shoot a video etc.) and trust me with prayers he will be good by the time he comes back within 6months to a year.I said it ‘k3k3” God is my witness…God is my witness!!!

Only for me to see a picture of him,my star,my legend OKOMFOUR kWADE3 going viral this evening and am really saddened by the look.I got upset about the various post,just like others too.Someone said the reason why late Benard Nyarko(rip) did not want his colleagues visiting him,another also argued that if the pic hadn’t gone viral,how would we have known what was going on with him.My heart is bleeding right now 💔. I don’t know his situation but definitely a brother needs help and its obvious no be today.I remember some years ago,i personally told the ex president of the musicians union of Ghana to organise a show at the stadium (of which i believed Ghanaians/fans would have supported ) to help him.Was willing to perform for FREE to aid the course and he told me he has thought about it and will put it on agenda;till today!!! This is not the time to point fingers,to be judgemental or explain what u think caused this.Fustration and depression can do alot more than your assumptions The brother is alive and its not too late.I can’t do it alone.I can’t do it on my own.Please i am begging all of u/s lets come together and help OKOMFOUR KWADE3 whiles we can instead of wait to bury him or use him for the “NEWS” and it ends there. We all need help,but, he needs US most right now.He needs our love, support and prayers in these hard times.No negative vibes PLEASE 😭 …Share this post and tag who comes to mind fam.Nobody knows tommorow.1 ❤.1 🇬🇭 #letshelpOkomfuorKwade3

SXSW Music Festival Dr Pushkin Aggie Budukusu

What is SXSW Music Festival?

The Outlandish album is finally out, and already Dr. Pushkin is on his way to the SXSW Music Festival. The conscious rapper has been confirmed as a performer at the SXSW Music Festival 2023. SXSW, also known as South by Southwest, is the world’s biggest festival of its kind. The event, which takes place in Austin – Texas, brings together over 160,000 fans to a barrage of musical performances, conferences, film premieres, and several mini-events that characterize art. This year’s event comes between the 10th and 19th of March 2023; it will, as usual bring the What’s Next in Tech, Film, Music, and beyond to patrons of the event and the world.

Which Ghanaian artists have performed on the SXSW Music Festival stage?

In 2019, Africa was prioritized by the organizers of the SXSW Music Festival with an “Africa to the World” theme. The event featured a myriad of Africa’s finest musicians and many others. Representing Ghana was Jojo Abot, Stonebwoy, and Efya. In 2023, Dr. Pushkin is honored to represent Ghana on the show.

In a conversation with Dr. Pushkin, he indicated how excited he was about the opportunity. While commenting on it, he mentioned the crew he’s mounting the stage with. According to the “Lies” and “Wake Up” rapper, Ghana’s undisputed tongue-twist specialist, Budukusu, will join him on stage.

The two rappers have collaborated on three songs off Dr. Pushkin’s latest album. And since they’ve been hanging around a lot lately, they are working some magic as a team. Also on Dr. Pushkin’s crew for SXSW 2023 will be Aggie and AZA, featured on “Forgive them” and “No Regrets,” respectively, on the Outlandish album. Selecta Rah of Club Bantu fame will be the crew’s official Deejay as they mount the stage to thrill and awaken the audience.

Dr. Pushkin’s performance comes on the heals of Jojo Abbot, Efya, and Stoneboy who graced the event in 2019 as Ghanaians.

History of the SXSW Music Festival

SXSW started in 1987 with 177 artists and 15 stages. By 2019, the event had 1,964 showcasing artists (including musicians) and 94 Venues & Stages. Notable artists and personalities participating in SXSW are Former US President Barak Obama, Tonny Bennet, Black-eyed Peas, Cypress Hill, Jean Grae, Chamillionaire, Lady Gaga, and several high-profile personalities.

SXSW is an experience of live musical performances, conference sessions, film and television screenings, exhibitions, networking events, professional development opportunities, art installations, and many more. This year’s event takes place from March 10-19. However, the musical festival component is a six-day event, 13th – 18th.
