Review: Kojo Cue -Kumasi FreeStyle


Kojo Cue is an artist who has always been proud of repping Kumasi in his songs. This has been evident in his songs such as his 2013 hit “W.IN.K” (We In Kumasi).

In April 2016, Kojo obtained the right from Reggie Rockstone to take on the title ‘Oseikrom President‘ and therefore released the song “Oseikrom President” to grace his new title.

As the official Oseikrom President, he drops a new song titled: ‘Kumasi Freestyle’.

The song has about 90% of its lyrics delivered in Twi. In just two minutes fifty three seconds, the song expresses nostalgic feelings of being born and bred in Kumasi.

Kojo raps about his early days, where he schooled and highlights some of the activities people of his age got into whiles growing up in Kumasi; for instance riding bicycles and going for street jams.

He also raps about how most people his age, back then, got into mischief as youngsters. He puts in a clever relatable line which translates; “…my uncle returned from Germany, gave me nothing, I stole his phone”.

On the hook he raps portraying  how he has been accepted as the best and having so much of Kumasi in him he walks and talks Kumasi: “I’m so Kumasi, Kojo Cue de3 the whole Kumasi”.

Mentioning some of the popular places in Kumasi, he raps: “me chilli Asare O,b)) night Plus 2” which translates I had fun at ‘Asare O’ and stayed up all night at ‘Plus 2’ pub.Despite being signed to Bbnz record label and gradually becoming famous, Kojo raps: “he still lives in Kumasi and only leaves when he has to go make the people of Kumasi proud.”

Ending the song he shouts out to some of the influential Radio DJs and music promoters in Kumasi which includes Ipapi, DJ Slim, Tony Best, DJ Kaxtro, Naa Klodey Loving Cee, NY DJ, Kwame Scientific and DJ Quest.

Making people feel important is a way to get them to do whatever you want; he has made music promoters in Kumasi ‘feel important’. His subsequent song releases will have massive promotion in Kumasi, no doubt.
