Kwesi Arthur eulogises Muhammad Ali in 'Pain Interlude' visuals, insists he's a champion in spite of 'several falls'
Beloved Ghanaian rapper Kwesi Arthur has released the music video for his surprise release titled 'Pain Interlude'.
In the 3 minute video, Arthur is a boxer who is knocked down several times. At the end of the bout promoted as a 10-rounder, however, it is not Obiba J.K's hand the referee lifts but Kwesi's.
In the chorus, he stresses: "No pain, no gain," and while lamenting betrayal by friends who have turned into foes, he confesses that: "I play[ed] with fire and got burned." He quickly adds a thought that rings true, perhaps, for every human: "Sadly it's the only way I fit [can] learn."
According to the multiple hitmaker's A&R Sabogsa, the music video, an artful film by Kwame KODA, shot in black & white, eulogises the boxing great Muhammad Ali.
