Mwuana followed up the strong underground buzz he had built up for some time with no less than three consecutive EP:s (”1: Spiridon”, ”2: Collén & Chords”, ”3: Nibla”), all in 2015. Now the urban scene was convinced that Mwuana is one of Sweden’s most talented artists, always with a new creative expression up his sleeve. A new sound was created and Swedish Hip Hop was changed, and improved, forever.
Beyond the love of the fans this resulted in a nomination for Hip hop of the year in one of Sweden’s biggest awards; P3 Guld, and also an award for best Hip Hop at Manifestgalan (a Swedish award show premiering artists of independent labels).
In April 2017 Mwuana surprised his fans by releasing the highly appreciated mixtape ”MW GO” just a month before the actual debut album ”Triller”. The wait had been long and expectations were high. But neither the fans nor the critics held back; ”Triller” is the best he has ever done and one of the top albums of 2017. With rap lyrics on timeless topics he also has the courage to sing and mix hip-hop beats with Caribbean rhythm, soul and funk. His constant elaborating and evolvement within his creativity and musicality is breath taking.
This resulted in a sold out tour and numerous nominations:
Hip hop of the year at P3 Guld.
Lyricist of the year, Album of the year, Hip Hop of the year and Video of the year (”Switch”, director: Nicolina Knapp) at The Swedish Grammys (where he also is featured on ”Hey Baby – Remix” by Lamix, nominated for Song of the year;).
Nordic Music Prize
All the above well earned – besides his creativity is also a productivity seldom witnessed. Since his first release in 2015 Mwuana has released almost 100 tracks, with over 30 tracks only in 2017 – one better and more innovative than the other. 2018 is the year Mwuana will take it to an even higher level.
