After that highlife album with his cousin Ras kuuku went solo after being exposed to the Rastafarian movement, his music began to take on a more positive tone performing at every reggae/dancehall show. He released his debut full length album Nokre on 2nd Feb 2012 which has become a hit in Ghana, especially the track “Adi3 b3 kyia”, which has an accompanying music video. Ras Kuuku sees King Selassie I as the Almighty and Jah is the ruler of all things, he is notable for being one of the new wave of contemporary reggae singers who prefer to include positive themes in his lyrics.
He is a Nyabinghi his faith reflects in his lyrics, where some recurring themes are praise for Jah and messages of Rastafari, positive portrayal of women, and condemnation of ill morals and corruption. This is a contrast to many popular reggae/dancehall artists, who encourage “slackness” in their lyrics, with boasts of sexual prowess and derogatory messages to women. One thing you notice when you see Ras kuuku is one handsome rastaman called Jah-shock who recites biblical quotes and positive vibes in almost all his songs. Many Rastafarians has said Ras Kuuku is Ghana Bob Marley because of his positive lyrics.
