The artist who recently got his new song ‘Billionaire’ on Apple Music Hip-Pop playlist in an interview with MZDRU on the Live Breakfast Club on LiveFM, when asked about his comment on the ongoing ‘beefs’ among his colleague artists, he said, “I am more concern about making more money than knowing who is ‘beefing’ who in the industry”

He explained that, Instead of concentrating on beef, why don’t artiste work hard on their craft to buy the cow to have an impact on the community. Kwesi added that though the music industry here isn’t really paying like other countries, but there are other streams of work to help pay most of the bills rather than concentrating on beefs to survive in the industry. “Let’s make more money than more beefs”

Kwesi’s new single ‘Billionaire’ was inspired by DJ Khaled’s Snapchat story. The song is released under his record label, Slay Music Group was produced by Lyrical Beatz with the video shot in Dubai and directed by Yaw Skyface.
