Dancehall artist, Ras Kuuku, says he finds genuine peace whenever he checks out the cemetery to spend his leisure hours.
According to him, although many people discover solace by flying abroad to catch up on intriguing landscapes and also artefacts across the globe, he likes to visit the graveyard to inspire himself.
“We relax in the ‘saman puom’ (cemetery); We talk with the dead. Picture your experience going through the sun hustling the entire day, you can relax, sit at the cemetery and loosen up, he said in an interview on YFM in Takoradi.
Another fascinating discovery he made was that several of the top songs he tape-recorded came to him at the cemetery, hence the reason why he doesn’t joke with the cemetery relaxation.
“I can just go to the studio and ask the engineer to play a beat and I freestyle. I don’t sit and compose tracks. All my tunes are freestyle.” he disclosed.
I have singles I can not count, so my team and I chose to find out with an album labelled, ‘Kuntunkununku the Heaviest’.
The word ‘Kuntunkununku’ is just one of the names of the Almighty and it also reminds of Osagyefo Kuntunkunuku, first King of Akyem,” he stated.
Ras Kuuku has many songs to his credit rating such as ‘Kuuku’, ‘Me Mpaebo’, ‘Senior prom Anthem’ and ‘Ghetto Love’ among other hit songs.
