Rising hiphop artist M.anifest will be representing Ghana at this weekends Big brother Stargame evictions on Sunday the 24th of June on Africamagic Entertainment.
Manifest is a true original. Born and raised in Accra, Ghana, the charismatic Hip-Hop artist migrated to the Twin Cities where he was voted City Pages Songwriter of the year after his critically acclaimed 2007 debut “manifestations.” He has been described as an artist with “an incredible gift” (the run off groove) who possesses “the kind of assured, joyful, ruminative voice that made Mos Def into Hollywood’s favorite conscious-rap star” (City Pages).
After only beginning to pursue music seriously as a vocation post his college education in 2005, the Ghanaian native has already stacked up an impressive resume: including on stage collaborations with Femi Kuti, Damon Albarn (Gorillaz), Amadou and Miriam, Mick Jones (The clash), Tony Allen, the Noisettes and many more.
Allhiphop.com profiled him (along with K’naan) as one of four African Artists “Stormin’ into the Hip-Hop World” (2009). In 2010, he played the Festa Dos Mundos festival with Africa Express in Spain in front of a 50,000 crowd and was part of the historic PUMA world cup showcase in Paris. His Music was also featured on the official Nike and Fader Magazine 2010 World Cup Podcast.
His grandfather is, Prof J.H. Nketia: one of the most revered African composers and ethnomusicologist.
Meanwhile Ghana’s last standing housemate, Keitta, is up for eviction with Barbz (South Africa) and Maneta (Zimbabwe.) Will Keitta be evicted as M.anifest performs on the stage or will he survive and stay in UpVille to suffer the attentions of Maneta.
