This year, Flowking Stone has just been making statements in his songs, and only comes out with a single when necessary. Although that’s necessary, we missed the Flowking that made us dance. Here he is with “Shake for Daddy” which features the humorous “One Corner” hitmaker, Patapaa. He takes us to the dancefloor with Willisbeatz’ produced up-tempo song. Patapaa surprisingly drops some bars on it. Ladies and gents, we have a banger!!!
Ghana’s rap heavyweight Flowking Stone took a different turn this time and he laid some dope rap bars on a dance beat with ‘One Corner’ hit maker Patapaa.

Easter in the Garden City is a great deal, but it’s being quite a while since a major event at an unusual location such as a lakeside happened. Of course, Kumasi can’t have such a historical event without their “king of rap.” Billed to perform as one of the main acts for the programme, prior to Flowking Stone’s performance he was given a warm welcome by his die-hard fans, amidst cheers.
Re-echoing his stance as the King of rap music in Kumasi and one of Ghana’s biggest musicians, he thrilled a mammoth crowd with back to back hits including Opana, Me Kyeakyea, Fire Bon Dem, Go Low, just tomention a few. In fact, he had the audience singing and rapping along hits from way back; from One Gallon, Simple… you name it. Performing to a very hyper and responsive audience he just couldn’t help than to out a great show. Also billed to perform at the event were Yaa Pono, Lil Win and Eno Barony.
We’re 26 days into 2018, and Flowking Stone has broken his silence from last year. He drops “Real Talk” to satisfy the hunger of fans. As the name implies, “Real Talk” is a rap song which discusses very hot issues including the ‘Pull Him Down’ attitude of Ghanaians, Nigerian music dominance, envy, and a bit of national issues of interest, like the Fulani saga, etc. He flows excellently on a Trap beat produced by TubhaniMuzik.
Kumasi happens to be a city full of music lovers. However, for years now a mainstream artiste native of the Garden City hasn’t headlined a full concert. The rapper, singer and songwriter Flowking Stone gathered confidence to stage a concert dubbed “Oseikrom Shutdown Concert.” Before the event people doubted he could fill up the venue – Kumasi City Mall (KCM). But the “Go Low” hitmaker was able to prove doubters wrong. In a usual fashion, we review the event.
Performances: Upcoming artistes opened the stage up with short performances. Almost every serious upcoming musician was given the opportunity to climb the stage to display his/her talent. The Bantama Kings Club (BKC) guys and Steez Realm acts really moved the crowd with their energy-filled performances.
The “Problem” hitmaker, Guru brought the heat to the stage, further bringing out his NKZ signee Kin Paluta, who was introduced as the future of Kumasi music industry. Epixode busted some freestyles off the top when he quizzed the crowd to spell Flowking, and he’d use each alphabet to form lines live on stage. I had my mouth wide open when Strongman came on stage and the crowd couldn’t keep calm for a second, completing his famous lines, and singing along to all songs he performed.
The main action came up when the man of the event climbed up stage with a boxing costume, and introduced himself as the MC from thence. He called the “Gbee Naabu” hitmaker up on stage. Yaa Pono made the audience love him so much they didn’t want him to leave. Then came Stone’s brothers, Okyeame Kwame and Kunta Kinte. From ‘old skuul’ to ‘new skuul’, the artistes excited the crowd so wonderfully, and yeah, it was my first time watching them perform “Ksi Boys” live. Okyeame did an awesome thing by rapping to the audience’s handclap. Teephlow performed his hit songs, and brilliantly taught the audience to sing along a song which features Stone off the “Phlowducation EP.”
In all, I’d say performances witnessed would give a typical music lover satisfaction, but leave him/her a desire for more.
Stage, Lights and Sound: The stage was well mounted, and was fairly wide. It was clearly strong, as some dancers stomped their feet hard on the stage but didn’t give any sign of breakage. The lights were bright, well enough to see the crowd, and whoever was on stage. Good execution for the lighting! Spending most of my time backstage, I almost thought the sound was trash till I struggled to enter the crowd session and realized the sound was actually okay. There were technical hitches that wouldn’t let the event flow smoothly. It was the major down of the event, as it kept the background organizers very busy.
Although they’ve worked throughout the Christmas festivities, the MCs saw to it that the audience coming out to show support was not wasted. El Presidente and a host of others were on fire last Saturday. As usual, the DJs were unstoppable from doing what they do best.
Timing: Knowing well that the event wouldn’t be able to hold till daybreak, the event which performances started at 9:30 pm didn’t start early enough. There was a tall list of performers, so it’d have been better if it started earlier. The show had to end abruptly when there were a number of artistes backstage who had not performed.
Flowking Stone received the love he wanted, and was successfully able to hold a concert of his own, with the help of Bie Gya Bitters, Special Ice Mineral Water, RentAir, Zoomlion, Indomie, Icy Cup, etc. We only look up to the next great thing Flowking has for the garden city.
