M.anifest has been shifting the status quo of the African music scene since his arrival. An award-winning artist from Accra, Ghana, he is known for marrying traditional African sounds with Hip Hop sensibilities. M.anifest's music is “transformative,” and he has received wide recognition for his clever wordplay and effortless trilingual lyricism, employing English, Twi, and Pidgin English to produce boundary crossing music. His fourth studio album, 'Nowhere Cool,' is a culmination of lessons learned on his travels and travails.The Gorillaz Damon Albarn says of Nowhere Cool, "I’ve always loved what M.anifest is saying and this record is no exception. He’s a brilliant lyricist.” M.anifest's formidable list of collaborators include Erykah Badu, Femi Kuti, Tony Allen (Nigeria), Brymo (Nigeria), Highlife legend A.B Crentsil (Ghana), Hypnotic Brass Ensemble (U.S) & more.
