Rapper Kwaw Kese has revealed that the year 2014 was one of the worst years of his life.
Kwaw Kese recollects that he lost his manager, got divorced and was jailed all within that year, leaving him with crippling depression.
According to him, that depression made him seriously consider quitting music.
The rapper is currently promoting his new album ‘Victory’ and spoke with MzGee on TV3 Wednesday.
“In 2014, after my manager was killed in cold blood and the same year I got divorced, got arrested and sent to prison, all these three things happening in one year, at a point I decided not to do music again,” he said.
“At that time, I had nobody to look up to apart from God. I was really depressed and didn’t want to do music again. I didn’t know what to do with my life but God spoke to me, I listened and I came back to Ghana and that was better.
“I was depressed for four months. I heard a voice telling me I was stronger than this and people look up to you so go back and do what you have to do.”
‘Abodam’, as the rapper is sometimes called, has released the first single off the upcoming album, also known as ‘Victory’.
