Kwame wins the 2018 Unearthed J Award!
Massive shoutout to Kwame, this year’s Unearthed J Award winner for Artist of the Year!
It's tradition that when you turn 21 all your family and mates get together for a dual toast and roast but for his 21st revolution around the sun Kwame proved himself invulnerable with a truly breakout year.
The Sydney rapper got everyone's attention early on in 2018 with the release of 'WOW', an instant hit brimming with bounce, lyrical spark and charisma. It was enough to lock him in as the Unearthed winner to open up Splendour In The Grass and there was no stopping him after that. As well as dropping his second EP 'Endless Conversations' with that other jam 'No Time', Kwame flexed it live, touring around the country with Peking Duk, Tkay Maidza and Skepta - not to mention dropping into the triple j One Night Stand in St. Helen's.
So how'd Kwame actually celebrate his 21st birthday? He did it on stage at the Unearthed showcase in Brisbane for Bigsound 2018, having just whipped a chockers room of fans and industry admirers into a proper frenzy.
Pretty fittingly, this J Award for Unearthed artist of the year is the icing on the cake for Kwame.
