Kweku Sackey aka K.O.G (Kweku of Ghana) is a multi-dimensional force, combining exquisite writing skills with shamanistic live performance, fierce raps, perfectly on pitch singing across a massive vocal range and some absolutely wicked dance moves. Not to mention his skills as a percussionist, arranger, bandleader and art director. A true poet and storyteller, he uses a mix of English, Pidgin and Ga to paint sonic pictures that reach deep into the soul.
Born in Accra, Ghana, and now based in Sheffield, he grew up with a diverse range of international influences and Ghanaian styles. A prolific writer and collaborator, he needs a range of projects to showcase the different sides of his talent, and his music has taken him to perform all over the world.
He is the lead vocalist for afro-futurist project Onipa and hi-life/hiphop/funk band K.O.G and the Zongo Brigade, as well as collaborating extensively with Nubiyan Twist; his song ‘If I Know’ was performed live on Later with Jools Holland and playlisted on BBC Radio 6.
Kweku is deeply aware of his heritage and of his role as an ambassador, negotiating culturally between African and Western influences and between the traditional and the modern: always open to new innovations and ideas while firmly rooted in a deep lineage.
