Just as earlier publications circulated, Ghanaian rap heavy weight Flowking Stone was named as a performer at this year’s 100 Years of Beat Festival in Berlin-Germany. The event brought together music and art lovers from different parts of the world.
Patrons of this event will have a lot to write home about when it comes to ‘The King’s’ performance as he thrilled them to awesome renditions of his popular songs using sounds created from indigenous Ghanaian instruments and rhythms live on stage. It appears that Flowking Stone is gradually changing the phase of Ghanaian rap music by representing Ghana’s rich culture through his music with this path he has chosen.
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.
