Jacob Nana Kwame Etroo, musically known as (Quata) Budukusu, was born in Accra, Ghana. He attended Airport Police Primary and Junior High School, in Accra and proceeded to Aggrey Memorial Zion Senior Secondaryschool, Cape Coast, Ghana. After his senior high school, Budukusu took a professional course in sound engineering.

Budukusu started his musical career by combining Root African vibes and the native Twi language. He is regarded as the fastest rapper in Ghana, the inventor of tonguetwisting in Twi, super accomplished songwriter, and themost versatile artiste who does every genre of musicentirely. Budukusu can rap, sing, do dancehall, pop music, and much more.

Budukusu is very fluent in English and Twi composition that brands him as an international artiste. In 2004, Budukusu released his debut album, WONIE, that took over Ghana with a traditional video that went viral on Channel O. He immediately became a household name with all the hit songs he featured onwards. His collaborations include K.K. Fosu’s OGA, Tinny’s ALETSE, and composed MAKOMA MU TOFFEE for Tinny. He alsocomposed MzBel’s TURN ME ON, featured on Becca’s YOU LIED TO ME high life mix, and featured on J.A. Adofo’s MENKO M’NIGYE.

Budukusu’s INDEPENDENCE album had hit songs, BABY (the first English and Twi pop song) and PRETTY FACE, featuring VIP. The launch of the album became the biggest in the history of Hiplife music in Ghana.  Budukusu is the first rap artiste Kojo Antwi, the maestro, featured on ESU NKETSENKETSE from his SEBO album. Budukusu is like a phantom presence felt to the fullest yet invisible.

In Twi, English and Jamaican Patois, Budukusu brings words to life with his rhymes, rhythms, melodies and tongue-twisting rap skill and broad composition, the one word for Budukusu is MUSIC. Budukusu’s ability to combine both English and Twi Language, as well as his flawless look and swag, makes him a brand that will stand and represent any company very well.

On August of 2017, Budukusu released Quantum Riddim (his first album under Bakus Records) distributed by VPAL music, the distribution wing of VP records. Quantum Riddim is a 13-tracked album delivered on just a single beat. The release of Quantum Riddim was historic since no one has ever recorded 13 songs using the same beat/riddim.

Nii Menz describes how he received ‘Nea Ote Me Mu’ through a dream

Music comes to musicians and songwriters through different means, as some get their lyrics while in the bath house, period of fasting, driving or at prayer meetings, others get theirs through dreams.

Over the years, artistes have shared their intriguing stories of how they got inspiration to write their songs.

Interestingly, fast-rising gospel musician, Nii Menz, known in private life as Anderson Nii Kwei Mensah has revealed that his new song dubbed “Nea Ote Me Mu” is a dream come true, a song he received in a dream.

According to him, the song was revealed to him in a dream,” it was around 2am one dawn, I was deep asleep, but found myself singing in a dream, I immediately woke up, I liked the melody and began to write verses for the song in accordance with the title revealed to him.”

Nii Menz added that he was very happy after writing the two verses for the song and proceeded to the studio to record the song to fulfil God’s revelation to him.

Touching on the message, he said “the song simply means ‘He that is in me’, the bible makes one understands that He that lives in us is greater than what we see outside.”

“If you have God living in you there is nothing one cannot do, and going by the direction and guidance of God, one can reach higher heights,” he said.

The gospel musician charged christians not to underestimate the power they carry because God created man in His own image.

Nii Menz said, even though it was not easy to mobilise resources, he decided not to give up, but to ensure the gift from God did not go to waste.

He promised of good songs and hard work in the years ahead, adding that gospel music has what it takes to lift Ghana music.

The song which was produced by Zapp Mallet is available on all digital platforms and comes with a video that was directed and shot by Good Luck pictures.
