Kwaw Kese opens up on his depression experience; says he nearly quit music


Ghanaian rapper, Emmanuel Kofi Botchwey, well known as Kwaw Kese, has opened up on how depressed he was some years ago.

He told MzGee in an interview on TV3 that he nearly quit music due to the experience.

Kwaw Kese said it happened in 2014 after his manager was murdered, got a divorce and he was also arrested in the same year.

“In 2014, after my manager was killed in cold blood and the same year I got divorced, got arrested and sent to prison, all these three things happening in one year, at a point I decided not to do music again.

“At that time, I had nobody to look up to apart from God. I was really depressed and didn’t want to do music again. I didn’t know what to do with my life but God spoke to me, I listened and I came back to Ghana and that was better.

“I was depressed for four months. I heard a voice telling me I was stronger than this and people look up to you so go back and do what you have to do,” he disclosed.

Kwaw Kese is currently promoting his latest song titled ‘Victory’.
