Popular reggae and dancehall artist Kojo Kurankye better known as Ras Kuuku earlier this year released his fourth studio album titled ‘3,3 &1’, which he calls powerful as the number sums up to make 7, a number he asserts that it represents a celestial God.
The reggae artist collaborated with highlife artist Kuami Eugene on the song ‘Abundance’, featured Fameye on ‘Sika’, Ypee on ‘Cheddar’, Paa Kwesi on ‘She fine’, and Kobe Trice on ‘1,6,7 street’.
Of all these collaboration, Ras Kuku touched on his reason for wanting to collaborate with Kuami Eugene on a song in this ‘3,3,1’ album.
Speaking in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM about his album, the artist stated that there are certain key features that he looks out for when collaborating with any artist. This includes the type of song the artist is into, the voice of the artist, his style and mode of delivery.
“If you check my song abundance on my new album, the way song is, with the kind of voice on it, coupled with the delivery on the song speak for itself.” He stated.
“The arrangements on the song if you observe critically there is nobody who I think will be able to add a touch on it apart from Kuami Eugene because of his style, voice, and delivery.
“Everything about Kuami Eugene perfectly suits the song and besides when I gave him the song too someone will say that he didn’t mess up the song as we say he wasn’t loose on the song,”
He concluded by saying that,
“He delivered to my utmost satisfaction which made all of us very happy and we applauded him for such awesome work done so before I feature you on a song I look at the kind of music you do, your style and your voice before I go ahead.”
