Release date:

Born September 29, 1960 in Kumasi, Ghana, Yaw Atta-Owusu didn’t seem to have music in his future. After attending AME Zion Mfantsipim Senior High School and managing the bar at the Kumasi Golf Club, he lived with his father for several years before moving to Germany in 1985 to join his wife, Mary. For 9 months he took German classes and planned to attend university but his wife got pregnant with Kevin, their first son.

About the artist

Ata Kak's music has been a legend on the internet since Awesome Tapes From Africa made the mysterious Ghanaian singer/rapper's tape its very first blog post. The auteur's left-field highlife-hip-house creation is one of the more joyous sounds out there.
