According to Kwaw Kese, he got divorced, was jailed and lost his manager who was also his best friend back then.
In 2014, after my manager was killed in cold blood and the same year I got divorced, got arrested and sent to prison, all these three things happening in one year, at a point I decided not to do music again
At that time, I had nobody to look up to apart from God. I was really depressed and didn’t want to do music again. I didn’t know what to do with my life but God spoke to me, I listened and I came back to Ghana and that was better.
I was depressed for four months. I heard a voice telling me I was stronger than this and people look up to you so go back and do what you have to do.
