Award-winning Ghanaian raggae-dancehall musician, Kojo Kurankye, popularly known in the entertainment circle as Ras Kuuku has hinted on his quest to land a music collaboration with iconic hip-hop rapper, Rick Ross, alongside four other undisclosed African musicians in the coming year.
Ras Kuuku revealed that aside opening the year 2024 with his upcoming music concert dubbed ‘Puomfest’, he is also planning on landing collaborations with five different top-class musicians from the African continent and beyond.
In a recent interview on TV3’s New Day show, he stated that he plans on collaborating with the likes of American hip-hop rapper Rick Ross, Ghanaian high-life legend, Daddy Lumba, Nigerian-based Afrobeats singer, Burna Boy, South African rap icon, Nasty C and Diamond Platnumz from Tanzania.
Providing reasons why he added Daddy Lumba to his list, Ras Kuuku revealed that the legendary highlife singer is someone who really inspires him and though he (Lumba) doesn’t do raggae, he doesn’t good music.
Ras Kuuku is one of the few Ghanaian raggae-dancehall musicians who is noted for doing indigenous raggae music.
Though he can sing in English, he likes to compose songs that is dominated by the local Akan dialect and that is one thing that makes it distinct from other raggae musicians in Ghana.
