Kenneth Opoku (born August 13, 1993), known professionally as YGA O'Kenneth, is a rapper, singer, drill artist, and a songwriter from Ghana. He is widely regarded as one of the most influential hip hop artists of his generation due to his progressive musical styles and socially conscious songwriting. Born and raised in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, O'Kenneth began his musical career in 2016 in Kumasi, Ashanti region, and quickly gained local attention, which led to him signing a recording contract with Life Living Records in 2019. O'Kenneth rose to prominence in 2020 with his verses on the songs "Sore" and "Akatafoc," both of which featured Yaw Tog and Kawabanga. In 2021 he released "Until It's All Said and Done," a conscious drill record, as his debut studio album. The album received positive reviews and featured singles such as "Loosing Grace Ft Reggie", "Gimme Dat" and "Hopez Ft Jay Bahd, Skyface SDW and Chicogod". In 2022, he released his second studio album "Straight Outta Kumerica 2" with Reggie under the aegis of Life Living Records. The album, which featured the singles "Pa!", "Loading," and "Timing" and was heavily influenced by Drill and gangsta rap, received widespread critical acclaim. O'Kenneth is one of the pioneers who brought the Asakaa genre of music to light as a member of the group (Asakaa Boys) that started the Kumerican movement. Asakaa thus refers to the group's ability to speak and use street slang on each track.
