Abladzo Kwame changes name to “Kwame Ye”, drops promo photos to spark new journey

Published

on

Kwame Ye 4

Abladzo Kwame was a loud name for fans of Rap until the Rapper decided to go into hiatus and rebrand. He returns with a new name, Kwame Ye, and also shares new promotional photos to kick off his new found journey.

 

Follow him on his Social Media pages below:

Facebook – Kwame Ye (@KwameYeMusic)

Instagram, X – @KwameYeMusic

 

Stemming from a culture of hardcore hiphop and street rap, Kwame Ye, as he loves to be called in the showbiz circles is unapologetic about his style and presentation of rap culture.

 

Born as Klu Frank, he hails from the Volta Region of Ghana; but primarily grew up in Adenta, a suburb of Greater-Accra where he got inspired to start music as a hobby from childhood. With an unflinchingly real-life perspective, he would be found delivering rap with a gruff rasp influenced by  UK ‘Grime’ and ‘rusty’ beat compositions to fit his style of lyrics.

 

Kwame Ye is a co- founder of a music clique called Kings Capital Music Group (KCMG).

 

“I fell in love with art as the days crept, adding more years to my infant self; and while I grew up, my style and passion got influenced more by my peers and lovers of my music; this pushed me more to work more music, write more music, record more music and perform them as well across different stage. Music became a powerful tool for me to express myself effortlessly”, Kwame Ye intimated. He was formerly known as Abladzo Kwame, and would later pick Kwame ye as his newly found space after a new dawn of transformation and revitalisation.

 

“HipLife and Highlife were my foundation and first influences; both served as therapeutic sounds for me and led me into producing and writing my own music, and exploring other styles (genres)”, he added.

 

“I would say my style of music is a Fusion of Rap and Afro-Soul; and to keep my origins I use a lot of my native dialect, Ewe, for almost every song I churn out” –Kwame Ye.

 

Kwame Ye recorded his first song with Skillions (a Ghana-based music clique cum label) at their recording studio titled “Bossu”, featured on by Boynash, a London-based Ghanaian Rapper.

Kwame ye has scored some feats working with notable Ghanaian artistes like Edem, Gemini Orleans, Nektunez, just to name a few. He also doubles a Fashion Designer who pieces together all kinds of fabrics, creatively, as another form of gifted art.

His global influences? Kanye West, Akon, Lil Wayne, Da Hammer, Nektunez fall on his list of favourites he gets inspired by with their works.

Gary Hughton 754x424 1

Lionel Messi picked up the Best Men’s Player award for the third time since this format of the awards began in 2016, after doing so in 2019 and 2022.

A mix of votes from national team managers and captains, journalists and fans on Fifa’s website – with each counting for 25% – were used to decide the winners.

For Ghana, this is how Black Stars coach Chris Hughton and Gary Al-Smith (representing the media) voted for the best player category.

Hughton voted Messi as his first choice, Mbappe in second while Haaland was given the third spot.

Al-Smith, however, opted for Haaland as the first option with City’s Rodri and Victor Osimhen following accordingly.

Messi and Haaland finished on the same points, with the former getting the award as he had more first-place nominations from national team captains.

The Argentina captain was named men’s player of the year at the 2023 Fifa Best Awards in London on Monday, January 15.

The Inter Miami forward beat competition from Manchester City striker Erling Haaland with Paris St-Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe coming third.

He scored nine goals for PSG as they won the French Ligue 1 title and 10 goals in seven games as Inter Miami won the inaugural Leagues Cup in the United States.
