As a winter of general discontent fast approaches, we’re in greater need now, more than ever of a warming, indeed unifying voice, and that which Kwabena Adjepong’s parents gave him may yet prove to be that of a generation. Kwabs plies his trade in soulful, self-assured hits-in-waiting, likely plundering his progenitors’ record collection for inspiration. For Wrong Or Right has more in common with, say, Marvin Gaye than it might, well, Common, Adjepong this time in no uncertain terms suggesting he may be a more than valid alternative to much of the homogenised mainstream stuffs currently clogging up the Top 40. “If you’re looking for a place to hide, it’s alright/ I will always try and look the other way” he croons wholesomely, and in Wrong Or Right, Kwabs has contrived another masterwork we might well feel compelled to hibernate within throughout the uncompromisingly brutal coming months. Thus although he may begin, “I don’t wanna be a leader/ I don’t wanna let you down”, the luxury of choice may no longer be an option to this universally cherished and widely revered trailblazer.
