UPCLOSE WITH QWESI MAYBACH (@Qwesi_Maybach)
Talking about upcoming artists who has so much passion for what they do and are ready to put in much dedication, Qwesi Maybach should be on the list if not on top of the list…. Bismarck Saah Forson is his name officially, born and bread in Agona Swedru. Basically that is where his early stages of his life took place.
He started off his basic education at Additrom Preparatory (Adabraka). Went through it all as a dedicated student and completed with flying colors… He successfully gained admission at Swedru Secondary School (SWESCO) and through hard work and seriousness with his studies, he was able to complete his secondary education. Bismarck a.k.a. Qwesi Maybach did not take a pause on education after completing secondary school… He went ahead to enroll at the Central University College (C.U.C.) and currently reading BC Marketing and at Level 100. ”Education is very important to me and its something i will never joke with” He says…
The whole Family moved to Accra when he was 6 years old; and to him, that is when his early life really began… He grew in the soils of North Kaneshie – Awudome Estate, where they lived for almost a decade before finally moving to Donsoman, where he says they currently live now. Qwesi did have a lot of fun moments when he was growing up and eventually had much interest in football; which he later realized was not his real passion. He felt he wasted his time putting much effort into something he realized wasn’t really related to his dreams. But he says he got no regrets wasting his time either because it was fun and he did enjoy every bit of it!
”Well to admit, I’m really a fun of music and can’t live a day without music:I mean GOOD MUSIC.I cant really tell the genre i like best because if it sounds good in the ears then my soul is going to relate to the music.I listen to Hip-hop,RnB,Gospel, Reggae,Country Music and any kind of music”. However, he realized his talent as a musician when he was in senior high school (S.H.S.) He could easily rap and sing along to other people’s music… He did it so well and sounded almost like the original tune. He did that to both foreign and local tunes he loved listening to. That is when he decided to get a few lines down himself and see how it will all come out… ”Rappers like Jay Z, 2pac, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross inspired me way back so i started to put ma lyrics on paper till i started my studio works now.And for the album that i enjoyed the most till date will be Meek Mill’s debut album Dreams & Nightmares and my favorite track is “Traumatized”.A very emotional track which always makes ma day.The track i related to the most is “Who you’re around” which he featured Mary J Blige. I can proudly say that Meek Mill so far is my inspiration because he came from nothing but now he’s popping and living his dreams.Such a motivation.” He added…
”For now I think my most known song is the when i featured Lil Shaker which is “Get There” because my lyrical concept was on point with Shaker’s hook. Although it wasn’t really a feature but only a beat and a hook that was upload by Magnom beats, I didn’t “loose-guard” I just went hard on it and murdered it.My tweeter followers,friends and people who downloaded it were inspired by my lyrical content and made it known to me through calls,messages and twitter mentions” He with so much excitement! He does not have any video to his credit yet, but he promise to start working on one very soon.
The young rapper hasn’t made any major featuring yet. But featured a couple of upcoming artists on his first single M3 Jigga.. Lila and Omapayin who are both still underground and upcoming did a great job to that track. In fact, that is his first track we started promoting on our platform…
He currently holds a certificate in Network and Hardwork Engineering which he acquired at I.P.M.C. and that is something he can be proud of.
”With the hard work I’m putting in, I’m so sure that in the next year I’m going to blow up and be performing on large stages with the big stars and will surely be in the spot light..We gonna be on target for real.” he said with an enlightened confidence….
He is currently in the studio cooking up a mixtape titled ”The Wait Is Over” which will be released in just a couple of months… Just keep your eyes on this space and get more update and info about the upcoming mixtape.
