His deep strong voice invokes and captures the emotional facet of any record you will find him on. Whether it’s from the “street narratives” that emanates the pain & struggles of life that an underprivileged individual would be accustomed to, or a “Club Banger/Feel Good” song that everyone can escape reality with and have a good time to. Akiese delivers both and more!
