Kwesi Arthur, a Ghanaian rapper, has revealed why he included a lottery kiosk in the artwork for his latest album, ‘Son of Jacob.’
The rapper stated in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM in Cape Coast that using a lotto kiosk as part of his artwork does not suggest that he is encouraging young people to play the lottery.
He said “Please that’s not it. I’m not using the artwork of my Son of Jacob album to promote lottery or gambling among the youth in Ghana.
“That’s not the idea at all but I feel lotto is a part of us because it’s something that we saw when growing up and even today when moving around you will see a lotto kiosk,”.
“So I felt like it’s still a part of us but that’s what it depicts in the arts that’s why my designer included it as part of my Son of Jacob album cover,”.
Kwesi Arthur, not long ago, set the internet abuzz as he released his most anticipated album-themed “Son of Jacob”.
The “Son of Jacob,” which was making waves since its release, became an internet sensation as it tops trends on social media.
The 15-track album features M Huncho, Adekunle Gold, Bigg Homie Flee, among others.
Kwesi Arthur held an album listening session on Thursday, April 22, 2022, at the One Airport Square in Accra where a number of celebs came in to support him, including Efia Odo who flaunted her b0.0bs in a see-through dress.
