Ghanaian talent Kwesi Arthur has finally released his long-awaited debut album, ‘Son Of Jacob’.

A rather strong body of work, the project delivers a vivid impression of Kwesi’s origins. Merging his Afropop influences with an eclectic mix of genres, Kwesi multi-dimensional grasp of different worlds truly sets him apart from his peers.

With an array of features from the likes of M Huncho, NSG, Vic Mensa, Joeboy, Teni and more, Kwesi’s ascendancy as Ghana’s next global star is impending.

Speaking on the album’s title, Kwesi explains: ” I belong to the Akan meta-ethnicity which consists of a group of people presently settled in parts of Ghana and Ivory Coast in West Africa. We the Akans and other ethnic groups all over Africa, have a peculiar connection with the Israelites in the Bible. We share close cultural practices such as circumcising our male offspring as well as various other rites of passage.”

“Jacob, according to the Bible, birthed the tribes of Israel – apparently 12 tribes – and although we come from that, I feel like we are the 13th son that the world has ignored for so long. I am the representation of the 13th son, hence the title ‘Son Of JACOB’”.
