In an effort to put to bare his talent, Highlife musician Kankam has turned Shatta Wale’s hit song “Mahama Paper” into a Love song by rendering an acoustic version of it.
Known in real life as Stephen Kankam Acheampong, Kankam is a spirited Ghanaian Afrobeat/Highlife singer, who has come to reinvent our local traditional music in a modernised form that will thrill Africa and the world at large. At the age of eleven, he was conferred on the name, “Martyrs’ Michael Jackson”, because of his singing and silky dance moves.
Kankam is signed on by Aboriginal Music, a record label that is working with him to propel his brand into the limelight.
Kankam has performed at shows like Felabration – a show held in memory of Fela and also the Mo Ibrahim show. He has shared a stage with artistes like Ambuley, Ebo Tailor, Youssou N'dour, Angelique Kidjo and Yaa Yaa.
