THEY MADE ME STAY IN THE RAIN ALL NIGHT WITHOUT PERFORMING – Kwesi Arthur Recounts

Rapper and songwriter Kwesi Arthur, also known as Emmanuel Kwesi Danso Arthur Junior, has discussed his challenges as a rising star.

The artist has discussed some of the difficulties he had as a budding artist and how it motivated him to strive even harder.

Kwesi Arthur said to Roselyn Felli on Joy Prime that most event organizers turned him down because of the type of music he performed.

“…Maybe they thought my style then wasn’t trendy enough or it wasn’t what was on and what everyone was used to because I feel my music is really different. I was more introspective, I was more of talking about my story when everyone was doing the danceable vibe and I had people turn me down.”

“Going to shows, I spoke to one of the organizers who was putting the names down who said he was going to make me perform. I stayed from 5 pm to 2 am, I stayed in the rain and it rained on me till 2:30 – 3 am but I never performed. The next day, I went to do the same thing. I feel all these things happen to strengthen you,” he explained on Prime Morning.

He praised the internet for helping him launch his career as one of the few musicians who used social media to share his popular tunes.

“The internet is the future. The internet gives grounds for everyone to shine and make a name for themselves. It’s a great source to use to boost whatever you’re doing, and I’m thankful I could make it through the internet.”
