Veteran highlife musician has complained bitterly on how King Promise snubbed him over a feature.
According to him, he wanted to feature King Promise on his song but his request was not honored.
“I have approached King Promise as well, and he never did it. And I met him (King Promise) after the VGMAs. We were in the same category “Best Male Vocalist Category”. It was him, myself, Joe Mettle, and the other guys”, he said
“And I won that category, so after that, I met him and told him that I had sent him a song and was still waiting on him, but he told me he didn’t know about it,” he added.
Akwasi Opoku aka Kwaisey Pee was born to the legendary highlife artiste, Agyeiku, and grew up with Rex Omar as a first cousin. His life revolved around playing with various bands like Jewel’s Ackah’s Butterfly Six and Nana Tuffour’s Sikadwa Band, playing at gigs in different parts of the country.
Akwasi Opoku took a trip with his father to the United Kingdom in the late 90s and the experiences there made him take music more seriously than before. His albums include Krokro Me, Akono Yaa, and Nyane Me which won him a Ghana Music Award for Best Male Vocal Performance in 2007. Nyane Me, a 13-track album featured Tic Tac, Kontihene, KK Fosu, Ofori Amponsah, and his father, Agyeiku.
This modernized highlife singer has been likened several times to the maestro, Kojo Antwi, and he doesnâ€™t minds. From shows in Europe and in the USA, Kwaisey shuttles back and forth to Ghana and is currently working on new material including a project with Tallal Fattal.
