Prolific rapper and BMC sole artist, Rap Kowa has said he was surprised at the huge support he got at the launch of his maiden album Buuri Malma.
The event which took place in Kowa’s hometown of Sirigu in the Upper East region saw people from all walks of life turn up in their numbers to support the hard-hitting rapper.
Expressing his views on the type of support he got, he acknowledged the huge numbers that was present but he identified a particular group that he said shocked on the night.
“To be frank, I was surprised to see the huge crowd at the event ground. I can’t remember the last time I saw such numbers at an event like that,” adding, “the young boys and girls who are not even working and still in school came out and were throwing money in support”.
“I was shocked and at the same time it gave me hope for the future. Because if those kids in primary school, junior high and senior high were willing and did support financially that much then I wonder what they will do when they have more.
“I told myself I am actually a star. The thing is always about the future so when you see the little ones come out to show love it means theirs is so much prospect and I really want to thank them for the love,” he said.
The second group of people he said most impressed him were the elderly. He said they defied the weather to come and stood in the cold to support him and that overwhelmed him as he has not seen its type before.
“Comparing all the events[launching] I have been attending within Sirigu and beyond I have never seen one that old women and men were there dancing and showing support. When I saw them dancing to my songs I really felt good and got the impression that my music truly transcends age barriers,” he noted.
Rap Kowa of Bakanyange Music Crew successfully launched his maiden studio album in Sirigu on Friday, December 30 at the Durbar Grounds amidst loud cheers and energetic performances by several supporting acts. The Porum Logoro crooner has hinted of more good things to come following the album launch.
