Kweku Darlington, the singer behind ‘Sika Aba Fie,’ has given a heartbreaking narrative about the struggles he had in the early stages of his music career.
Kweku Darlington claimed on United Showbiz on Saturday that he arrived to Accra as a stranger in pursuit of his ambition of being a renowned musician.
“I chose to leave home since my father felt obligated to care for my other three siblings. So, despite not knowing anyone in Accra, I left Kumasi for the capital.
“Until one day, a Mallam agreed to take me home and stay with him, I primarily slept around VIP Circle Station and under the bridges. I never cried throughout that time, but I believe it strengthened me to pursue my dream,” he explained.
When asked by host Abeiku Santana how he got his first hit song, Kweku Darlington responded, “So I met a music distributor named Kwame Baah on Facebook.” He told me to come home, and we talked about how to improve my profession.
“I entered my first music competition, Mentor, and despite my early eviction, I started making progress, and Kwame Baah has been pushing my project, and luckily for me, I received my first hit song.”
Kweku Darlington went on to say that Nigerian rappers MI Aberga, Obrafour, and Okyeame Kwame have all influenced his musical growth.
Kweku Darlington’s new track “Aketesia,” which features Nigerian musician Laycon and Medical, is now making waves across Africa, with remarkable streaming statistics.
