The 20 Hottest Artistes in Sierra Leone 2021 – Kracktwist & Samza – #13
Nothing reads more apt than two talented artistes who are re-positioning the art of afrobeats and vivid rap storytelling in the Sierra Leonean music industry.
Ishmael Kamara (Kracktwist) & Samza Serry (Samza) is no doubt one of Sierra Leone’s finest musical duo whose rising influence in the music scene cannot be swept under the carpet.

The duo came to the limelight after the release of ‘Same Life Nor More’. The album became a huge success followed by the launching at Kent Beach. Early 2017, Kracktwist & Samza were signed to the prestigious Kabaka Multimedia Entertainment (KME) label alongside other artistes. Under the record label, the duo released major hit songs like ‘Thop’ which took over the country in 2017/2018. They also made an international collaboration with Senegal artist – Fafadi and worked with big Sierra Leonean artists such as Abizzy, Shadow Boxxer and other top KME artistes. They later won the NEA Award as the Best group in the country and other awards in 2018.

In March 2019 they released their second Album at the Radisson Blu Garden in Freetown which was very successful; making available 4 promotional songs like, Wi Jonkshon, Respect ft Shadow Boxer, Same life Remix featuring many Sierra Leone famous rappers. After their 3 years contract with KME came to an end in 2020, they both launched their record label called Cracktwist & Samza Investment (KSI) .
Kracktwist & Samza are Ambassadors for Padi Products and their collaborative efforts in 2021 have seen releases of hits like ‘Lef Am Na Ya’ and mostly recently, ‘Zizizor’. They also gave us an electrifying stage performance which formed a major talking point at the recently held ECOFEST 2021.
With their album still on the way, one can expect that the lads still have some bangers in stock for us. While we await more from them, they currently sit at spot #13 in the 20 Hottest Artistes in Sierra Leone 2021.
