Has Kwesi Arthur fallen from Grace? || Hunukane NEWS

Kwesi Arthur, Fall From Grace?

Kwesi Arthur’s rise to fame and becoming a rap sensation, remains one of the most idolised breakthrough success by a lot of under ground artist waiting for a musical commercial success.

From the groundup to the Top, Kwesi’s success came as a shock to many when his freestyle posted on twitter went viral back in 2017. 

During this period, Kwesi would be co-signed by a lot of heavy weights in the industry like Sarkodie, Omar Sterliniig, Manifest and the likes, Straight after that, Kwesi released his commercial HipHop banger GrindDay, the single’s commercial success saw Sarkodie and Medikal Jump in on the remix. 

From this period till 2019  Kwesi Arthur, will be crowned the prince of Tema, and continuously enjoyed a massive career run from dropping mixtapes, Like live from Nkrumah Krom Vol. 1 and 2, series of chart topping singles and collaborated with Artist like EL, Omar Sterling, Medikal, JoeyB, Sarkodie, Kojo Cue and Lil Shaker on their joint project and also enjoyed  some massive commercial success with Mr. Eazi, Quamina MP,  Kofi Mole, Shatta Wale, and a whole lot. 

During this Era, Kwesi was on top of his craft lyrically, mentally and physically. 

From collaborating with one of SA biggest Hiphop artist Nasty C on his Live From Nkrumah Vol! 2 mixtape, to rocking shows topless and still coming across very humble, a lot of people predicted Kwesi was going to be a music more bigger artist from Tema and Ghana than Sarkodie, after picking a BET nomination and coming home to his hit song Woara, one of the few songs from a circular artist that was performed in churches.

With a groundup Chale Record label backing him and the whole Tema behind him, what made Kwesi fall from grace? and if he has, why don’t people love him like they used to?

The truth is Kwesi hasn’t fallen from Grace if you ask us, his day one fans are still following his constant rise in music, they share his music across socials and post him up whenever he drops new tunes, the shift in his massive following is due to the fact that Ghanaian music fans are passive, they are constantly catching waves with artist that are new and hot, they like to jump on artist that are trendy or everyone is talking about, Black Sherif is currently the hottest Ghanaian artist at the moment, Blacko also carries similar background to Kwesi Arthur, and all Ghanaian music fans are catching his wave at the moment. This makes it hard for artist to keep the same following if they fail to stay hot through out their career.

Kwesi just dropped one of the best albums of 2022 to come out from a Ghanaian artist, with hits songs like Celebrate with Teni which charted #24 on Apple Music in Ghana:

Baajo with JoeBoy also charted #33 in Ghana #111 in  Chad #145 in Sierra Leone

and even before that their collab ‘Door’, the album in his first week on released saw all 15th songs occupying the first 15 spots on the apple music Ghana chart, entire album also charted 

#1 Sierra Leone #2 Chad #2 Ghana #6 Liberia #79 Tanzania #89 Côte d’Ivoire etc

On applemusic and Kwesi became Apple music’s RapLife artist of the month for May.

Kwesi remains one of the few Ghanaian artist that have joined  Founder & CEO of Sovereign Brands Luc Belaire, Brett Berish on his insta live to have a conversation about his music career and success archived so far, an event that was joined in by thousands of worldwide.

Yes Kwesi Arthur buzz we must have agreed has seen a bit of decrease in hype but Kwesi is still relevant and pushing his craft to higher height, The Hunukane News team will keep following his musical journey and hope he brings home a grammy some day.
