During an interview Kwesi Arthur had on the popular Ghanaian radio station, Hitz FM, he revealed why he teamed up with Nigerian young star, Jeoboy for hit-song “Baajo”
Speaking with Andy Dosty, he stated that when he recorded his verse on the song everyone felt it, however, there was a gap in the song and JoeBoy gave a perfect joint.
“You can’t really predict the creative process. When I recorded my verse on Baajo, everyone felt it. However, there was a gap in the song and we all thought JoeBoy would fit perfectly. We sent it to him, he laid his verse and that was it. History was made.”
He also revealed the best collaboration he has had since joining the music industry some years ago. According to him, although he has had many collaborations, his collaboration with DarkoVibes is his best.
“The collaboration I enjoyed doing was Confirmed by Darkovibes featuring myself. He already had the song, there was an empty space for me, I just did some melodies and put some words together and it came out great,”
