Akwaboah has been regarded as someone who encourages rapper Strongman Burner to make clean music with thought-provoking lyrics.
This was revealed by Strongman himself in an interview with Kay Official on Y102.5FM’s Dryve of Your Lyfe.
He said of his collaborations with Akwaboah, “You know Akwaboah truly brings out the best in me.” He motivates me to perform better every time we record together, from Vision to Transformer to Forget and First Love. When I use Akwaboah on a song, it makes me want to compose better. Brings out my finest qualities.”
He further claims that while the two of them work together, he refrains from using any vulgar language.
“Whether we’re working on his song or mine, I always have to bring my A-game. So even if I wanted to be obscene on a song with Akwaboah, I couldn’t.”
Strongman said of his upcoming ‘The Tape EP,’ which includes the song ‘Nhyira,’ which features Akwaboah, “at least if the women aren’t going to jump to any of the songs on the EP, they’ll jump on Nhyira.”
Strongman also described Akwaboah as a friend who he can rely on in any situation. “I believe Akwaboah and Eno Barony are the individuals I can call pals. I know I’m sorted whenever I’m doing anything with the two of them, and I do the same for them. I can chat nonstop with Akwaboah for an hour and discuss information with Eno Barony.”
Other artists in the industry are not buddies to him, but rather business associates. “I can talk to Fameye and work with him, but that’s it. But Akwaboah and I are going to communicate and vibe a lot more. That is all there is to it.”
Strongman reunites with Akwaboah for yet another legendary banger named “Nhyira,” directed by Prince Dovlo.
‘Nhyira,’ which means ‘Blessings’ in Akan Twi, is a song written to thank the Almighty for all of the blessings He has showered upon their life.
Nhyira is the second track from Strongman’s upcoming “The Tape EP,” for which he has not yet set a release date.
