Award winning rapper, Edem (@iamedem) has praised his forebears for their pioneering role in Ewe rap but is proud of himself for bringing consistency to the hitherto little-known field of Ewe rap.
He acknowledged that while a couple of rappers started rapping in Ewe, he has managed to do it consistently.
Edem burst onto the Ghanaian music scene with the name Ayigbe Edem and released his debut album ‘The Volta Regime’ in January 2009.
The album came as a result of two years of recordings and working with renowned music producer, Hammer of The Last Two.
Speaking in an interview on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM Friday with Kojo Yankson, Edem noted that although there were pacesetters, he is the only act who has consistently done rap music in Ewe for which he is excited.
He acknowledged Chicago and others for laying the foundation.
The Nyedzilo hit rapper explained that his music is inspired by the fact that “I take pride in my Volta origins.”
