Worlasi has been confirmed as one of performers at this year’s Music In Africa Conference for Collaborations, Exchange and Showcases (ACCES).
The pan-African trade event for music industry players to exchange ideas, discover new talent and create business linkages, which takes place at Sci-Bono and Constitution Hill in Johannesburg, South Africa, on 25, 26 and 27 November 2021, will see the Ghanaian alternative artiste join previously announced performers to deliver exciting and thrilling performances.
Other performing artistes confirmed for ACCES 2021 include Dendri Stambeli Movement (Tunisia), Wamwiduka Band (Tanzania), Yugen Blakrok (South Africa), Tommy WÁ (Ghana), Worlasi (Ghana), Thobile Makhoyane (South Africa), Msaki (South Africa), Urban Village (South Africa) and Diamond Thug (South Africa).
Worlasi is a beast of a rapper, producer, singer and songwriter. His songs have been praised for being refreshing and inspiring and his lyrics, unrestrained and African.
He has an intriguing contrast: hyper confident yet humble, hungry for knowledge and simultaneously overflowing with it, overly optimistic but keen-sighted to life’s harsh realities. These attributes bleed raw into his music, resonating through his rough, baritone soul and the experimental undertones of his music in a painfully linear industry.
His breakthrough single, Ay3 Adz3 set him apart from his peers He caps off such focused and realistic lyricism with his mixtape project, Nus3 released in September. Nus3 is a super jumbo bundle of motivation, assertiveness and self-belief. This was his first major project and it already has people calling him a god. He released a second major project which has also nothing short of breathtaking and shot compelling visuals for two of his singles- One Life and Nukata.
Accordingg to ACCES, it is also partnering with the Bassline I AM HERE concert on 27 November to present Stogie T (South Africa), Thandiswa Mazwai (South Africa), Sampa the Great (Zambia), Laliboi (South Africa), Moonga K (Botswana), Morena Leraba (Lesotho) and Ikati Esengxoweni (South Africa).
The conference will also feature international speakers, networkers and showcasing artists, including event producer and journalist Rashid Lombard (South Africa), musicians Vusi Mahlasela (South Africa) and Muzi (South Africa), Black Major’s Sevi Spanoudi (South Africa), Afro Nation Ghana producer Ruddy Kwakye (Ghana), Dakar Music Expo founder Dudu Sarr (Senegal) and Ongala Festival director Aziza Ongala (Tanzania), among many others.
