Flowking Stone, a Ghanaian rapper, says he gave up his career to help the music industry in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region.
As per him, he forfeited his life and vocation for the impending specialists in Kumasi to realize that they can make it any place they are and he’s pleased with what he did checking a few craftsmen out.
The “Fire Bon Dem” hitmaker said over the weekend in an interview on Adom TV’s Showtyme with Andy Dosty that he is crucial to the success of Kumasi-based musicians.
Flowking Stone said that at the height of his career, he had the chance to move to Accra, but he turned it down because “I wanted to prove them wrong.”
He said that he didn’t want to be like the other Kumasi rappers who “wanted to make it big” and rushed to Accra because “they wanted to make it big.”
He claims that he mentored some of the artists in a low-key manner by providing them with audience and exposure in a variety of ways. If he looks at some of the artists he mentored, his decision to remain in Kumasi has paid off.
Flowking Stone is one of Ghana’s best rappers, but he isn’t seen in more action because, as he said, he decided to give up his life and career for the next generation by not moving to Accra, where almost everything is possible.
