Kwesi Arthur’s Parents Were Both Singers

Kwesi Arthur

It’s no doubt that Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur sprung up from nowhere and has dominated the airwaves ever since his ‘Grind Day’ song paved the way to cement his music career.

In an exclusive interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM, Kwesi Arthur’s dad, Mr. Danso made interesting revelations about his family.

According to him, music runs through the family as his wife and himself have equally towed the music line before but didn’t hit the mainstream as their son has done.

“His mum wanted to do music when she was young. She wanted to join a band because she was a good singer but her mum refused her because those days’ women couldn’t easily join bands.

“I have been doing music right from childhood too. I have joined lots of singing groups. We were called ‘Voice of Heaven’ in Community 5 Pentecost Church. Singing has been part of me, just that I am losing my voice as an old man,” he recounted.

Talking about how he brought the Tema-based rapper up, Mr. Danso said he never stood in his way and allowed his children to exhibit their talents.

“I don’t put impediments in their way. Right from BECE exams, I am just an observer. God used me as a vessel to bring them to the world. I can guide them from doing the wrong thing but their talents I allow them to follow,” he said.

According to Mr. Danso, Kwesi Arthur’s greatest influence as a young kid was his big brother.

“His problem was his big brother. He introduced him to video games which he is still glued to. I once caught him in one of the centers and I didn’t like him going there because most of the kids used to gamble there so I don’t use the cane in my house but rather leather belt to put some fear in my children to discipline them,” he told Andy Dosty.
