Kwa has done shows all over the metro Detroit area including performing live on TCT Network, the Downtown Detroit Fireworks, The Upper Room, and opening for Da Truth and Andy Mineo at Greater Dreams Church. Kwa has held several benefit concerts for people in need, believing that no matter what is given to him, it's more important to give back. He has also traveled doing shows in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Jackson, Michigan, and Toledo, Ohio to name a few. Growing up, Kwa was misled by rappers and several other bad role models. The only thing that mattered to him was money but not because that’s what actually mattered but because that’s what he was programmed to think. All he could think of was how could he get it fast and get more of it! This love for money took him down a criminal path that ended in a three year incarceration. It wasn't until he suffered from pain, lost, and hard times that he realized he was called to do more than make sweet sounding music that influenced kids negatively. He was called to create good music that will empower communities, promote God, motivate the hopeless and ultimately change the world.
In the summer of 2012, he answered the call. Kwa released his first "gospel" album entitled "CHURCH" and it grew a quick buzz in the Detroit area. "Church" was his testimony and he was elated to be able to share it through his passion, which is music!! Kwa responded with this statement in a recent interview about his career, "God delivered me from the streets so that I would be able to go back to the streets and help others who need deliverance.”
He lost time when he was in prison and he lost friends to the same lifestyle. This lifestyle that he was able to escape from helped him gain a personal relationship with God. His mission now is clearer than ever. The mission is to infiltrate the music/media field and flood it with positivity. Flood it with God's love and reassure people that no matter what your background is, no matter what you've done or the mistakes you've made, God can and will use you. Kwa is a living example of that.
Every song that is written by Kwa is from the heart. Every lyric that rolls off his tongue is spoken with passion, and every concert that he hosts is a benefit. He believes that if he is able to touch just one person that he can inspire that person to touch someone else, creating a cycle that can change a nation. To Kwa it's more than just music, it's a ministry!!!
