Ko-Jo Cue makes return, teases new music with Joey B

Ko-Jo Cue

Ko-Jo Cue is back in the limelight with a bang. The rapper, known for his lyrical prowess and storytelling, has announced the release of his latest single, “Free Throw.”

Set to drop on September 28, 2023, it features Joey B with production from Fortune Dane. The upcoming track marks the end of Ko-Jo Cue’s hiatus and will usher fans into a new chapter of his career, as he recently announced a new management team, Gold River. 

Ko-Jo Cue’s musical journey has been nothing short of remarkable. Following the success of his EP, “21 Memory Lane,” in October 2021, the artist took a break from the spotlight.

However, he didn’t completely disappear from the music scene; instead, he collaborated with artists such as Dj Carcious, Ria Boss, and Paapa Versa. 

Earlier this month, he announced his return to the limelight and dropped a thought-provoking freestyle addressing some of the pressing issues in the Ghanaian music industry.
