Singer-songwriter Kweenaba, officially known as Onyamepe Opoku-Agyemang, is more than just an incredible performer; she is also a talented scriptwriter, actress, and film director. With a melodic operatic voice reminiscent of Asa, Kweenaba self-classifies her style as fairy R&B and afro-dancehall, a unique combination of dark cabaret, electronica, and new age.
She adopts a stage persona heavily relying on theatrical glam rock and is highly involved in all aspects of her music’s production, resulting in a highly inventive and original style. This level of artistry is reminiscent of older acts when music fully represented the artist and the artist represented the music’s quality.
Kweenaba has been a backing vocalist for notable artists such as Sarkodie, Becca, Efya, Wutah, Bessa Simons, Oheneba Kissi, and Paulina Oduro. Her cover of “Attadwoa” gained her many subscribers on her YouTube channel, and she has been performing musical gigs in town ever since.
