Nana Kojo Krakye popularly known as Ras Kuuku has revealed his frustration with how he’s treated in the music industry because of his identity as a Rastafarian.
In an interview on Angel TV E-UPDATE with Host Herty Bee, the ‘Wo’ hitmaker mentioned it’s about time Ghanaians accepted The Rasta Movement because they are chosen ones of God and the only people who would make it to heaven.
During the interview he was asked why he boldly confesses openly that he smokes marijuana when be knows it’s illegal and can be arrested for that to which he answered by saying he doesn’t really care and that Ghana police should leave them to smoke and grow some weed for industrial purposes.
Ras Kuuku is a household name in the Ghana music industry and has bagged multiple nominations at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. He has also won the prestigious BASS Awards which is organised annually in Ghana.
He has shared stages with international acts Popcaan, Jah Vinci, Kranium, Alkaline, just to name a few.
Ras Kuuku has a lot of following with his fanbase called “Puom”, a moniker launched himself with when he registered his first monster hit “Father”, followed by successive major cuts “Show Them Love”, “Ye Taali Mu” (ft. Shatta Wale), “Nwansina”, “Wo”, and now his latest Mpaebo.
“The Ghetto Youth President” as he calls himself sometimes, has been a positive voice for youth liberation and empowerment; Ras Kuuku is a strong critic with his music addressing social and economic issues facing GHANA and beyond.
He is a vocal face of marijuana advocacy and legalization for medical and industrial purposes.
