Featured Artist: Spek Won
25 June 2015 Featured Artist
When asked what two words best describe who he is, and who he wants to be in the future, Benjamin Nii Kpani Addy’s response is “Spektaularly Wonderful”. It’s from this affirmation that the versatile Ghanaian-Canadian artist takes his name Spek Won. The architect of HipLife a movement that fuses African high life with hip-hop and Afro-funk, Spek Won is also the founder of Toronto-based “Afro-entrepreneurial” group Z*BOIZ (Zongo Boiz). His album Sofa King Amazing is available on BandCamp, and features guest appearances from LordQuest, Marty McFligh and Silent Jay, with production from Slakah The Beatchild, Nevon and bizZarh.
Tracks from Spek Won’s latest LP will be played daily on our 5pm Featured Artist of the week.
