9.Kwame A Plus (Age: 40)
Kwame Asare Obeng (A-Plus) is a hiplife artiste who seems to take great interest in rapping about politics and social issues.
He released an album, Freedom of Speech I right before the 2000 elections in Ghana. The hit track, “Mesuro mpo na merekeka yi o” talked about how he was afraid of what he was saying and doing what he was still saying it, in the light of democracy as he lambasted politicians.
Another song used Dr. Ephraim Amu’s Yen ara asase ni chorus. His style was new and a welcome addition to the hiplife landscape. Other than his political songs, he also has a lot of socially conscious songs, pitting him against the likes of Sidney, Obrafour, etc.
He played an integral part in the win of the current government, Npp during the 2016 general election on the world’s biggest social media platform, facebook.
