Rapper Kwaku Nsia Boama, also known as Flowking Stone, claims he gave up his profession to advance the music business in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Region.
The “Fire Bon Dem” hitmaker claimed in an interview with Andy Dosty on Adom TV’s Showtyme over the weekend that he is a pillar for the success of musicians from Kumasi.
When his career was at its height, Flowking Stone claimed he had the chance to move to Accra but turned it down because “I wanted to prove them wrong.”
He claimed that he did not want to follow the established quo, as many Kumasi rappers with modest reputation flocked to Accra in an effort to “make it huge.”
“From 2003 till date, it was always about Kumasi. I was supposed to move to Accra to compete with the big rappers but I decided to stay to let them [young rappers] know you can make it in Kumasi,” he said.
