The Ghanaian musician will play live shows in the States in spring 2020.

His Obaa Sima tape was originally released in 1994, but went largely unheard despite its novel mix of Twi-language rap, funk, hip-hop and electronic. Awesome Tapes from Africa tracked down the obscure musician an re-released the album in 2015. He's since become a European festival favorite, appearing at Sónar and Glastonbury with a London-based band.
