Ashiaman -based HipPop/ AfroPop talent, Kwesi Slay’s recent released ‘Billionaire’ which he says was inspired by DJ Khaled’s Snapchat story is on Apple Music Hip-Hop playlist.
‘Billionaire’ is on the playlist with J Cole’s ‘Middle Child’, DJ Khaled’s ‘Big Boy Talk’, ‘Weather the Storm’, Lil Wayne, Future, Jeezy, Yung Rich and a host of some renowned world Hip-Hop stars.
The song which is released under his record label, Slay Music Group produced by Lyrical Beatz with the video shot in Dubai and directed by Yaw Skyface, is a motivational song which talks about how most people strive to become ‘billionaires’ which by achieving it will need an undiluted level of hard work, determination, focus, discipline, consistency,etc.
In an interview with the young music boss, he said “Being on the playlist is encouraging and it is challenging me to work extra harder on my craft to get to the top. Seriously I am so happy to be on the list among great legends in the music game”
He added that he mostly gets inspirations for all his songs from life “because I believe what we are exposed to or the kind of environment I find myself in has a very great influence on my music. Growing up in Ashiaman where it’s mostly dominated by slums, it had its implication of either being positive or negative.”
He says he is open to having a feature with all artistes both in Ghana and outside Ghana, “I mean it depends on the kind of song and the quality of the product I want to put out there. My advice to people who look up to me is, never to undermine their personality and always have it in mind that we are all destined for greatness regardless of our condition today.
