Ras Kuuku goes International

Dancehall/Reggae musician, Ras Kuuku goes international after this year’s VGMA board refused to nominate his song – Father.

Militant Warriors Promotions & Progressive Dread Unit both Italian based production houses have picked Ras Kuuku to be the only African artiste to be featured on their Soul Warrior Riddim.

After watching Ras Kuuku’s Father music video on YouTube, they were amazed with the realities in the video. Even though they could not understand much of the lyrics in the song, they liked the rhythm and the few positive lines they understood “Help me father poverty is not my portion”.

They later made contact with Ras with Kuuku to grant him the honour of being the only African artiste to feature on the forth coming riddim.

The riddim is dedicated to the Turkish Resistance – an event that occurred this summer in Gezi Park, Istanbul.

3.5 million of Turkey’s 80 million population are estimated to have taken an active part in almost 5,000 demonstrations across Turkey connected with the original Gezi Park protest. 11 people were killed and more than 8,000 were injured.
