Song of the Day: Kumasi – Br3nya

After taking a year off to hone her sound, heading to Ghana for the first time in 10 years to collaborate with producers and artists on the ground, BR3NYA returns to reclaim her crown as a UK Rap Queen and drops her latest single,’Kumsai’ which features her trademark witty, sassy wordplay with production from MADEINPARRIS paying homage to one of her favourite cities in Ghana

Speaking on the single, Br3nya said:“Kumasi represents a metaphorical journey of my recent life experiences and the journey of rediscovering myself, my confidence, my truth and most importantly my heritage. It celebrates the fun essence and vibrancy of Ghana shedding light on underrepresented parts of the country which are just as full of life. It shows the duality of my identity being born and raised in west London but never losing sight of my true inner ‘Innit innit girl’. Kumasi being the pit stop between Accra and my hometown holds a very special spot in every trip I take back home; I can’t skip it and all it’s beauty-sometimes I pass through there to visit and build memories with family and more recently to celebrate the life of loved ones who have passed over, but each time is special.”

The British/Ghanaian rapper bewitched listeners as a ‘One To Watch’ in 2020 with a lyrical ability and confident, clever delivery that drew co-signs from the likes of Stormzy, Headie One, Ms Banks, and Ivorian Doll, playlists at BBC Radio 1, Capital Xtra, BBC 1Xtra and support from The Guardian, British Vogue, The Face, NOISEY, CRACK, The Fader, Complex UK, CLASH and NME.
