The 27-year-old rapper who was born in Chicago, Illinois, to Ghanaian parents, Betsy Mensah and Edward Mensah, seems to have not forgotten his root as he jams to one of the trending Kumerican songs.

The term Kumerica has been trending for almost a month across all social media platforms in Ghana.
Kumerica is a combination of America and Kumasi, and the term which refers to modern-day Kumasi. The term was coined by a group of up and coming Kumasi-based young musicians and since introducing the word, they have gone viral.
