Musician Flowking Stone has been explaining why he hasn’t thought about moving his career from Ashanti Region to the nation’s capital, Accra.
The rapper feels the capital is too populated hence it’s advisable for him to stay in Kumasi where he has a large fan base.
“Currently I can boldly say that I am the only hope in Kumasi when you talk of a musician holding it down there.
“All the rest are in Accra and the people of Kumasi are disappointed in those who moved from here to reside in Accra. My big brother, Okyeame Kwame, is no exception based on the comments I hear all the time.
“I know how the fans in Kumasi are; once you leave them and move to Accra to make it big, forget coming back because you will not be considered as one of their own,” he stated last Saturday, January 25, on Peace FM’S Entertainment Review.
He, however, admitted he would made more of an impact in Ghana if he was based in Accra.
“Every artiste who moves to Accra becomes bigger than when he or she is residing in their region. Kofi Kinaata and a few others are big now because they moved to Accra but the issue is that Takoradi will still consider Kofi Kinaata as their own when he moves back but the fans in Kumasi are different and I know what I am talking about,” he said.
Having been in the music business for 16 years and known for songs such as Blow My Mind, Go Low, Me Kyeakyea and Let Them Know, Flowking Stone, who admitted he should have been bigger than he is now, said he doesn’t have a strong management team.
“It started as Bradez with myself, Kunta and Okyeame Kwame. But it was left with Kunta (who later became sick) and myself so I had to start everything all by myself. I know I will get there and I am gradually working towards it.” he added.
