Twist Entertainment Legacy artist, Kweku Afro together with his band, finally treated fans to their own music after years of performing cover songs. He perfomed his official debut song, ‘Monalisa’, followed by his latest, ‘Party Papa’. ”My performance was a great one. For the first time as an artist, getting to perform my own song and having the audience sing along with me was overwhelming, a feeling I’ve never had before… I gave my all and I hope to do it once again when I’m given a platform”, expressed Kweku.
”Ghanaians should expect nothing, but the best from me – Kweku Afro and the TEL team. I’ve worked hard and I’m still working on and on. I’ve never been disappointed working hard and now that I am getting a bigger platform and the ears of the world, gradually they will not be disappointed too… What’s good is what they deserve and I’m ready to give. #Maestro”, he added.
