One half of Hiplife group Bradez, Kwaku Nsiah Boamah, better known as Flowking Stone is set to release debut album ‘Gifted’ after a successful media listening on Thursday at Django Bar.
You may have wondered why this talented guy hasn’t released an album of his own yet but again, it’s starting to be a great time to be alive for the rapper who has created a buzz in the blogosphere without quite a number of hit songs already this year. In an interview with Ike Frimpong on Saturday, Flowking Stone gave more details about the Album.
“If everything goes well the album should be out by 31st August. So far over 40 songs have been presented and I even have more. I’ve been doing lots of songs and have featured other people too that’s why I did the album listening so people will help me get the right songs for the album. My team and I are considering at least 20 songs for the album.”
The album will also see collaborations from artists like Efya, Cabum, Yaa pono, Adoma and many others and he takes an unconventional approach to song writing, drawing inspiration from everything from poetry, culture, tradition to street sounds.
“I have ‘Electric’ that features Cabum, there’s another one called ‘Rapping Drum’ which sees me rapping on different traditional drums from the north to south, different rhythms like Damba, Adowa, Agbadza all in one song. I also have one with Efya called ‘Bae’, another with Adoma called ‘Breaking Me Down’. There’s also a highlife song with my brother titled ‘Ohene’.
According to Flowking , almost every song he has recorded deserves to be on the album, songs like Yempe Dede with Yaa pono, ‘soldier’ with Ras Kuuku, ‘Fire Bon Dem’, ‘Number 1’ featuring M.anifest, ‘Akwadaa Bone’ amongst others.
‘Gifted’ Album is due release on 31st August which he says is a gift for his loyal fans and will first be available on iTunes, Amazon, and other platforms after which hard copies will also be dropped a week after.
The ‘Go Low’ hit maker will also be staging a couple of concerts as well as a radio tour to get the album directly to everyone. Fans can also follow his social media handles @flowkingstone for further information.
