Celebrated Ghanaian Highlife artiste, Kofi B, has praised his colleague Reggae/Dancehall act, Ras Kuuku. According to Kofi, Ras is a multi-talented musician, thus, the media and Ghanaians should give him more attention.
Recounting on meeting and working with the Reggae star for the first time, the “Koforidua Flowers” singer said;
“When his team came to me and was like they wanted me on a song, I asked which artiste do they want me to feature? They replied Ras kuuku. I was like Ras Kuuku, Ras Kuuku, I have heard his name but I wasn’t really familiar with his songs. Then one of the guys (team members) said the “Adi3 B3 Kyi” hit maker. I was like yea yea, that conscious song.
So I said but why do you want me on a Reggae song? And they said it wasn’t Reggae, its strictly Highlife. I requested the song should be played and on hearing it, I was shocked. I didn’t even listen to his verse.
I asked who played the beat and they said Roro. I wasn’t surprised the beat was on point, so we scheduled a date and we went to the Roacka studios to record. When I got there and listened to what Ras Kuuku has already done, I noticed what I listened was just a tip of an iceberg. I was really shocked a Reggae/Dancehall artiste could sing pure Highlife.”
