"Though involved in the music scene in Scotland for some time, Kobi Onyame is carving a new space for himself with the release of his new album Gold. The Ghanaian-born Glasgow-based rapper offers an alternative take on the genre, blending his West African upbringing with the stylings of contemporary hip hop to create a sound that is buoyant, confident and highly engaging.

Scotland's hip hop scenes are gradually gaining prominence but Onyame succeeds in setting himself apart..." - The List Magazine
