During that time, Kwaw said he had no desire to do music again.

“In 2014, after my manager was killed in cold blood and the same year I got divorced, got arrested and sent to prison, all these three things happening in one year, at a point I decided not to do music again.

“At that time, I had nobody to look up to apart from God. I was really depressed and didn’t want to do music again. I didn’t know what to do with my life but God spoke to me, I listened and I came back to Ghana and that was better.

“I was depressed for four months. I heard a voice telling me I was stronger than this and people look up to you so go back and do what you have to do,” he disclosed.
