Hiplife rapper Flowking Stone (@flowkingstone) has described himself as the “rap lecturer” in the Ghanaian music circles.
According to the ‘Fire Bon Dem’ hitmaker, his emergence in the industry and work ethics have enlightened most people in mastering the art.
“I think I am the rap lecturer. I break it down for people to know,” the rapper born Kwaku Nsiah-Boamah told Baisiwa Dowuona-Hammond on GH Today.

The artiste, known for his exceptional skills in tongue-twisting, wordplay followed with good punchlines, argued his case saying: “previously, people didn’t really know that when you rap you don’t just have to say things. I teach them how to rap. I teach both the fans and a lot of the rappers.”
“Before they didn’t even know you have to put in some punchlines here and there. And even putting in the punchlines you have to structure it a certain way.
“You don’t have to be repeating flows like that. You don’t have to be one way, you don’t have to be too light, all those things.”
“Right now, I see a lot of rappers putting in a lot of punchlines [but] before then, it was just ‘speak your mind’,” Stone explained.
Flowking stone emerged from the rap group ‘Bradez’ with younger brother Kunta Kinte. They are siblings to versatile hiplife star Okyeame Kwame.
