In the life of any artiste, one of the riskiest thing one can do is to make a remix of a song that put him/her in the limelight. Kwesi Arthur gathers confidence to feature the highest, Sarkodie and AMG Business’ very own Medikal on “Grind Day (Remix).” With a new verse from Kwesi Arthur, and one of the best verses I’ve heard all year from Sarkodie, we can’t ask for more. Although Medikal’s verse wasn’t the best, I believe we’d still enjoy the remix of our favourite jam, produced by Kayso.. Enjoy!
UK’s famous Tim Westwood has hosted a long list of celebrities around the world in his “Crib Session”. Think about all the top artistes and almost all of them have featured on the Crib Session. Only few Ghanaian artistes have been on there, and Strongman joins the list now. The young rapper as usual, proved he’s Ghana’s favourite “Wordsmith!”
Strongman delivered flawless and non-stop flows, tactically fusing in some English verses into the all Twi rap. He’s always confident behind the mic and knows how to switch styles without even pausing for a second.
This is a good look for Strongman and marks the beginning of many great things happening in his career under his label Sarkcess Music.
