The long-awaited victory album from the Ghanaian rapper Kwaw Kese cashes in on its promise. It’s the most gripping record in his catalog.
Multi-awarded Hiplife/Hip-Hop artist Kwaw Kese has released his sixth studio album titled ”Victory”.
Born Emmanuel Kofi Botchwey, the MadTime Entertainment CEO, Kwaw Kese is making a statement with this 10-track record.
When fame didn’t come, he made his own seat at the table, infamously dishing our hit records with a song of its namesake, ‘Victory’. Produced by Ghanaian US-based Ghanaian multi-platinum and #1 Billboard producer, Coptic, ‘Victory’ takes a dive into Kwaw Kese’s journey in showbiz. It highlights some dark moments in his career, such as the wave of depression that hit him after the gruesome murder of his then manager and good friend, Fennec Okyere. Kwaw Kese also pays homage to God for his life, which is one of ample success; ”Onyame nim wo story, before you got the glory”, he raps.
Next up is ‘Good Man’, the first to register a feature on the album. It features celebrated Dancehall and Reggae artists, Stonebwoy and Black Prophet which is a welcome plus. Other tracks on the record include: ‘Mente Mpo’ (feat. Mugeez); ‘Kapa’ and ‘Cash Up’ (feat. Skonti). Kwaw Kese also enlisted a scope of producers in the frame of Zodiac, Skonti, MOG Beatz and platinum US-based producer, Majestic Drama, to better realize his sixth project. Prior to release, Kwaw Kese released a streak of well-received singles such as the Tony Gynz-produced ‘Dondo’ (Remix) which featured Medikal, Skonti, Mr Eazi and Sarkodie, a Skonti-produced song, ‘Love and Affection’ (feat. Black Prophet) and finally, ‘Bottles’ (feat. Kwesi Arthur).
Speaking on why he titled the album ”Victory”, Kwaw Kese explained, ”I believe I’m an overcomer after going through a lot of ups and downs and still managing to keep up afloat”. ”My plan for the album is to reach out to anyone going through hell in life to remember that, with hard work and determination, they can become victorious in whatever battle they face”, he concluded.
”Victory” is a captivating body of work, filled with feature-packed songs that are built on strong production values. It’s a record befitting of its title and one that helps paint a vivid picture of Kwaw Kese’s journey in showbiz. To all the many fans who earnestly waited for this day, ”Victory” is now available on all digital stores worldwide for download and streaming.
