Kwaw Kese is a stage name for one of Ghana’s finest musician whose real name is Emmanuel Botway. He is also commonly known as Abodam which refers to “craziness”. He mainly concentrates on hip life and he came to the limelight with his hit album dubbed Abodam 2007. This release made him so famous. Kwaw Kese songs have won him many awards including the 2008 edition of the Ghana Music Awards.
He was born in Agona Swedru which is located in the Central part of Ghana. He is a former student of Happy Home Junior Secondary School and Winneba Secondary School. He has had quite a rough journey even in his plight to stardom; he was even arrested almost four years ago in December 2014 for smoking cannabis in public. He never denied the claim after the Ghana Police Service caught him in Kumasi; this led to him being tried in court. Later on, in 2015 on 23rd April, he received a sentence from the court of law demanding that he be jailed for one day having been found guilty of smoking cannabis and still paid a fine of 1200 sedi.
Despite his success and achievements, he has also had quite a number of controversies. Just the other day, during the Ghana DJ Awards for 2018, he dethroned a DJ as a way of honoring DJs in his own way. He nonetheless portrayed exceptional skills on the deck which shocked the multitude that had turned up for the awards.
Kwaw Kese songs
He has managed to release quite a number of songs, some of which we are to carry out a review on. This is a list of Kwaw Kese songs:
1. Kwaw Kese ft Shatta Wale - Allo (one of the best Kwaw Kese songs)
This song was produced by WillisBeatz and the presentation of this collaboration was facilitated by Shatta Movement Empire. The song is relevant to a specific crowd that is focused on being pretenders and fake wannabes. The Ghanaian Dancehall King, Shatta Wale does not disappoint and the man insane Kwaw Kese shows why he deserves the five awards he won. This song was released in April 2017 and is one of his new songs. With regards to the comments on YouTube, there are mixed feelings from different individuals. Shatta wale ft kwaw kese was good duo and a large number of the people that have commented have registered positive feedbacks on how the song is good and that it has nice beats. However, some people have commented on how the song is useless and that they should have found a better beat producer. Amid all these comments, majority of the people hailed Shatta Wale and his counterpart Kese for the good song that they released.
2. Kwaw Kese ft Stonebwoy - Haterss
This pair has done more than two songs together. Some of them are: No more, Haters and Jamming. Jamming is one of his old songs with it being released four years ago in 2014. This Kwaw Kese song has no comments on YouTube and has 3,098 views only. Haters are a part of his old songs that was released back in 2016 and it has an official video on YouTube. It is in the album dubbed “Forever” and the production is associated with the Madtime Music. The comments for this song are very positive where most people say that the song is a nice one. There are also positive comments about the quality video that was done. On the other hand, there are just but a few haters in this song that talks about the same haters. This is one of the kwaw kese old songs
There is a comment that states that one individual only likes Stonebwoy. This is the only negative comment that I spotted amidst all the comments. No more was released seven years ago in 2011 and the producer was Madtime Music. Stonebwoy ft Kwaw Kese make a good team and the comments on this song are a bit encouraging. The comments praise both Stonebwoy and Abodam. They are given credit by everyone that has made a remark; in fact, the only complaint which was more like a request of posting videos in a high definition mode. The song however is on point and is not out of date even years later. It is a song that I would recommend to many. Kwaw Kese ft Stonebwoy Thanks and Praise is also a track done by the two and it literally talks about appreciating what you have and owing it to God. If you’re looking for a rather spiritual moment, you can go for this song.
3. Kwaw Kese- Yakubu
This song was released in 2015 and was produced by Skonti. This was made a success with the help of Madtime entertainment. The song is of hip hop genre and it features the famous indigenous Ghanaian rapper, Sarkodie. The comments are only two and the one that strikes your attention is that the track goes hard. The comment also states that the first time the specific individual heard the song was while he was in Ghana. This probably expresses the fact that the song has not been heard by many people even from outside Ghana. However, in my own opinion, this is a song that I would recommend to many people who enjoy raw music.
4. Kwaw Kese - Katiboom
This song was produced by Ball J and was released in April 2017. The song features Medikal, Pappy Kojo, Yaa Pono and Ball J, the producer. This was fairly huge hip hop collaboration as all the big names had gathered to drop this mad tune. This is definitely a song that I would urge everyone to download. This song has only one comment, this is probably because they did not reach out to the wider fan base that they would have supposed to. The comment states “Another one from ‘THE MAN INSANE’ ”. The song is nothing but amazing though, if you ask me; in fact, I am still wondering why not so many people have had to listen it. On YouTube, it has only 3,878 views even though it has no official video. It is undoubtedly a tune that I would suggest to the greater public to get their hands on.

Kwaw kese scandal
Despite his love for music, Kwaw Kese was involved in a scandal. He most recently ranted about how Ghanaians are not supportive. These sentiments were sparked by his twitter followers who are 350,000 in total had a total of only 5,000 people retweeting his new song titled “Trap House”. He has collaborated with Kwesi Arthur who is a fast-rising artiste. In spite of the patronage issue which saw him disappointed, he still asked his fans if he should still release his song with the hope that the hit will be popular. Fans reacted to this story and many expressed their dislike for his reaction, anyway Kwaw Kese still has some die hard fans and this has not stopped him because he will still produce new songs.
