The 21-year old was chosen to mentor 40 emerging musos from Australia, South Africa and the UK at London’s Roundhouse between Monday, September 9 and Friday 13.
It’s part of the Nando’s Music Exchange (MX) initiative.
Past mentors have included Stormzy, Example, Ella Eyre, Lethal Bizzle, and Australia’s own Tkay Maidza and Urthboy.
Kwame will pass on his skills and advice alongside Nonku Phiri from South Africa and Nadia Rose from the UK.
“It’s so important for Australian artists to build their profile overseas to open more avenues of opportunity,” he says
“Breaking international ground has always been a plan of mine from the get-go, the dream, the goal, the vision is set for the masses.”
Chicken brand Nando’s created MX five years ago to give local artists the chance to collaborate with international names.
Kwame observes, “Meeting and working with artists overseas is positive and life changing.
“I say life changing because it’s more than one cultural background binding together to create a movement, an experience and a moment in time.”
