Few days ago, it was reported that Reggae artiste, Ras Kuuku had landed in the hospital after performing at the lyrical clash between Shatta Wale and Stonebwoy.
The reigning VGMA Reggae and Dancehall Artiste of the Year dislocated his arm whilst he was performing at the show. He was on stage to clash with Kamelyon as the a show opening and curtain-raiser for the show but few minutes into their clash, the ‘Who Send Dem’ singer dislocated his arm.
Before leaving the stage, Ras Kuuku made his condition known to the audience. The incident appeared to have been a mild injury at that time but later on, photos of the Reggae and dancehall artiste in the hospital surfaced online negating the mild injury notion as Ras Kuuku had to be rushed to the hospital with immediate effect.
One of the photos showed the ‘Puom’ boss lying on a hospital bed and another in a wheelchair. According to reports which surfaced later, Ras Kuuku after scans and checks was responding to treatment and had been discharged from the Ridge Hospital.
Following the incidence, it was reported recently that the reggae artiste has to undergo a surgery.
Ras Kuuku’s manager has spoke on his artiste dislocating his arm whilst performing over the weekend.
According to his manager, they headed straight to the Ridge Hospital that night where 4 scans were performed to assess the extent of damage and how to rectify it. Ras Kuuku has, however, been discharged but will still need treatment.
His manager, Biggest Boss, who was speaking in a phone conversation with King Lagazee on Accra-based Hitz FM, has disclosed that the doctors indicated that they had to come back for the facility to be scheduled for surgery to correct the impact of the accident.
Kojo Kurankye aka Ras Kuuku was born on 23 July 1984 in Accra-Ghana, West Africa by Afia Kesewaa and Mr Asiamah. He had his Junior High School Education at Dome D.A.J.H.S. He continued his Secondary Education at Nungua Presec were he was the Entertainment Prefect during his time there. He performed in almost all Inter-High School events. After school, he merged with his cousin to form a group named SM Bradez. The group gave birth to a hit track titled “Wo Ne Me Hemaa” which was all over airwaves in Ghana.
Ras Kuuku after that highlife album with his cousin went solo after being exposed to the Rastafarian movement. His music began to take on a more positive tone performing at every Reggae show. He released his debut full-length album ‘Nokre’ on Feb 2nd, 2012 and it has since become a hit in Ghana, especially the track “Adi3 b3 kyia”, which has an accompanying music video.
Ras Kuuku sees King Selassie I as the Almighty and Jah is the ruler of all things. He is notable for being one of the new waves of contemporary Reggae singers who prefer to include positive themes in his lyrics. Like some popular new Reggae singers, he is a Nyabinghi. His faith is reflected in his lyrics, where some recurring themes are praise for Jah and messages of Rastafari, positive portrayal of women, and condemnation of ill morals and corruption. This is a contrast to many popular Reggae/Dancehall artists, who encourage “slackness” in their lyrics, with boasts of sexual prowess and derogatory messages to women. One thing you notice when you see Ras Kuuku is one handsome rastaman called Jah-Shock who recites Biblical quotes and positive vibes in almost his songs. Many Rastafarians have said Ras Kuuku is Ghana’s Bob Marley to the world because of his Positive Lyrics.
