July 4, Kwesi Arthur brought Ghana to Concrete, smashing his debut UK headline show. The Afrobeat innovator came with non-stop energy, non-stop bangers and the biggest vibe.
With sweat dripping from the ceiling and the crowd singing back every word, it was a night for living your best life and the patrons definitely did.
There was just one moment of calm when he left the stage to get everyone hyped for culture-fusing Hackney collective NSG. Kwesi was more than enough alone, but his run o secret surprises was incredible.
From one of Nigeria’s fastest rising talents, DJ and producer Cuppy to London’s very own Ramz and the iconic Sneakbo, they all brought their own big hitters to the steamy sold-out basement.
Whether Kwesi Arthur was spitting through the impressive verses of Grind Day, crooning over heartbreaking slow burner Pray for Me or bringing audio sunshine with Nobody, it was very clear, he’s a star. The world is waiting.
