It’s been a crazy year for Kwabs. The 25-year-old YouTube star has come a long way since uploading his fist cover song. His soulful vocals are the theme tune for Fifa 15, as well as being the soundtrack for the recent general election in the UK.
Ahead of his gig at The Act’s second birthday party on May 17, we sat down with Kwabs to talk soup, social work and the success of his hit single, “Walk”.
I love the music of Phil Collins.We love your Twitter bio: “I sing. I am brown. I have a slightly wonky face. I like soup.” If your music was a soup, what soup would it be?
Spicy Goat soup made by my Auntie… It’s a complex mix of flavours, might have have some unexpected bits in it and will probably make you take a sharp intake of breath!If you weren’t a singer, what would you be doing?
Probably social work with fostered children… one way or the other I know I want to positively affect people’s lives.
Which track influenced your career in music?
“One Evening” by Feist.
Which song gets you dancing?
“All I Do” by Stevie Wonder
