- Yaw Cue! Does this name ring a bell? Yes, he’s the rapper who had a lot to tell with his exceptional rap skills and diversity back in 2011/2012. He’s the musician who collaborated with Lousika, Ko-Jo Cue, Cabum, Deon Boakye, Kankam, and Loonee, just to mention a few. He’s the artiste who performed on huge stages with top-notch performers. After putting his music career on hold for almost 5 years, he bounces back reenergized! He has rebranded himself to Wofa Yaw and is even set to release a banger and thought-provoking track titled “Dem Dey Talk” which features the renowned & controversial musician Wanlov the Kubolor.
During the 5 years of no music, Wofa Yaw was pursuing a B. Sc. in Public Health and also dealing with some issues concerning his personal life, plus his work as a professional nurse. Wofa Yaw is a proud representative of the garden city, Kumasi (Oseikrom) in the Ashanti Region of Ghana.
Before Hip-Hop fans in Ghana could even decipher bars, Wofa Yaw was exhibiting lyrical prowess with substance and literary devices. Hence he’s regarded as one of the pioneers of poetic flows in the region. He gained prominence rapping in the languages English, Twi, and Pidgin English. With his artistic ability, he has readied a body of work, “Chequered Life”, with 6 dope songs. Each track tells a real life story, from love to hatred, rough and smooth, ups and downs including a near death incident on 3rd June 2015… he goes the length to tell it all in his music. “Life hasn’t been all that easy for me but I smile each time I look up knowing God got me. Chequered Life is a true story and I want my fans to relate to me as a realist and not a front. I got nothing to hide. Let’s synchronize as you listen to each one of the songs on my EP which features a few rappers I personally love, thus, Wanlov , Blurr, and Kankam”, says Wofa Yaw. Wofa Yaw is clearly here to stay and make it bigger! Let’s gear up for the upcoming project.
