Undoubtedly one of best voices among the emerging wave of talents on the scene, Akan has managed to secure a unique identity with his rich language and proverbial traits evident in his music. With the success of his debut project; Akan E.P which earned him lots of admiration from industry players, old cats in the games, co-signs, interviews, shows, fans and all an upcoming rapper will need to boost his confidence and gather some attention, he has attained a lot of growth with an outstanding sound, finding a niche between the old Hip-life and modern sound of Hip hop over a period of time and 2 years after the E.P, Akan prepares to release his next project; an album to his catalogue.
ONIPA AKOMA as he first announced as the title of the album via his twitter page, will be released under A-Level Music, the indie label we’ve seen on his music videos for some time now. It is rumored that Akan paused from everything to concentrate on the album and has been keen on making it sound better than the E.P, as if the E.P wasn’t enough for a startup.
Akan is coming taking on a different route towards the album this album, as compared to the E.P which came with no singles and video to promote. We’ve been treated with some singles already, the smash hit “Helebaba” featuring Worlasi and its video, Jayso produced touching “Man Hole” and recent released “Abusuapanyini Freestyle” which sparked lots of conversation amongst rap fans, Akan declaring himself the leader of the game and head of his music lovers, the Akan Abusua.With what we have heard,we are glad to learn Akan is raising the bar with the sonics and content on ONIPA AKOMA. A studio image posted online showed his in-house producer and friend TwistedWavex, who is handling majority of the productions on the album which will also feature productions from producer MikeMillz, YungFly and other young producers on the scene.
Akan and team was discreet with details about the album, until the private listening of the album, revealing the track list and features on the album which surprisingly came with a single name Worlasi, but one can’t afford not to trust Akan’s process. From what we have heard ONIPA AKOMA is a master piece, a 15 track project, themed around the strong concept of spirituality and morality. Many have called it a strong comeback from the E.P which was tagged the next best thing after Obrafour’s classic “Pae Mu Ka”. All singles have received positive reactions and we have a release date. It’s been scheduled for October 14th for a release but before that fans can also
Pre-order via Aftown.com before the date is due. Expectations are high on this and we can’t wait for it drop.
