Ghana’s best hip-hop storyteller, Ko-Jo Cue, has announced the release of his upcoming EP, “I’m Back,” scheduled for release on November 16.
The rapper, who last graced fans with his EP “21 Memory Lane” in 2021, took a break from music and social media.
After a two-year music hiatus and a seven-month social media break, the rapper returned to the limelight with “Free Throw,” a joint effort with fellow artist Joey B. A notable highlight of Ko-Jo Cue’s resurgence was his participation in the BET Hip-Hop Awards 2023 Cypher, where he proudly represented Ghana on the international stage.
Making his announcement, Ko-Jo Cue shared a video that featured an interview with basketball legend Michael Jordan, who famously returned to the court in 1995 after a brief retirement. He captioned the post: “The unbeaten run continues! 4th Quarter Cue! Jump Ball in 7 days! I’m Back EP … Nov 16th. Stay Tuned!”
This exciting revelation follows closely on the heels of Ko-Jo Cue’s teaser for the long-awaited “For My Brothers Concert,” scheduled for December.
