Today esteemed British Ghanaian rapper Sway Dasafo is pleased to share spirited and sentimental anthem “Be A Champion” which features renowned actor/musician Idris Elba and London-based Tanzanian hip-hop artist Tiggs Da Author.
The track is accompanied by a striking video that was shot in Ghana, directed by Sway and KP Selorm and stars Sway’s own two sons and mother, who the track was inspired by.
Speaking of the track’s origin, Sway comments:
“One of the key factors that has attributed to my drive in life has been that from a very age my mother has always referred to me as a “Champion”. With her name being Beatrice and people calling her Bea for short the idea of “Be A Champion” is not only a play on words but also a gift to her for her continued encouragement in inspiration.”
Sway Dasafo is a UK based Music Artist, Executive Producer and Entrepreneur. He was born and raised in North London (Hornsey) by Ghanaian parents. After spending a short time in Ghana during early childhood he returned to England where he developed a fascination for English literature.
In later years this fascination combined with his love of music and knack for public speaking inspired the then budding music producer to vocal his own beats until ‘a better rapper’ appeared. That ‘better rapper’ was coaxed out of him by the encouragement of his peers and crowd reactions at rap battle competitions that he would later enter (and often win).
Now armed with an arsenal of new music Sway walks into 2020/21 with a plethora of collaborative projects and new music ventures to look forward to.
The near future will also see the launch of NR World and NR Global; an international distribution service and streaming platform that focuses on both the established and undiscovered talent coming out of Africa and more specifically Sway’s beloved homeland of Ghana.
