UK MUSIC NEWS: RAPPER SWAY DASAFO ‘I WANT TO RETURN TO THE OLD ME’

71372021SH071_Rise

UK Rapper Sway Dasafo went from being a successful independent artist to moving up in the world and signing to Akon’s label Konvict Music.

But since signing to Konvict, Sway’s music/image seems to have gone down a different route.

Pre-Konvict

Post-Konvict

I guess Akon’s attempts to turn him in to the UK’s “Mr Lover Man” bothered Sway judging from this message he posted on his Twitter page today.. 

after careful consideration and observation of the current UK music industry, I’ve decided, to return to the old me. Watch.

Hmmmmm…interesting…..  i’ll be watching Sway!

Silver & Gold sounds like the type of track Tinchy Stryder, Ironik and Chipmunk would jump on.

  1. the post knovict Sway sounds nice – i do like his old hit F your ex – a mixture of the two -show progression and hold onto roots at same time can be done. he may need to speak to his new mentor

  2. Well he certainly looks like he’s been eating very well on konvict music
    But the song isn’t awful, but its not great either. Tired same old same old concept.
    Nearly all artists have to sacrifice credibility for recognition and money
    I hope he does whatever makes him happy

  3. this is all goood which ever way you look at it…. i think i understand where sways coming from….
    but more importantly why have you not got his new single in here!!! we are judging him on his past material.. he’s got a whole new campaign and single happenenng right now!!
    erm.. whats it called again!!!

  4. Up ya speed, was the business, I loved that track, sway and pyrelli what a combo -deadly, absolutey lethal (NO Bizzle LOL) sway and akon no where near as sweet to my ear drums, more numbing to the mind, I’m glad he’s back, he’s able to do things with his tone, pitch / speed of delivery of words that not alot of artist can do in UK… I want the old sway back asap!!!!

  5. The Signature was a very good album. I know the face of it and promo push was the whole Akon/Konvict deal and song “silver and gold” but the actual album is the same old Sway from the 1st album. In fact he wasn’t all jiggy on that album he was quite thoughtful and people kinda wanted him to just crack jokes but he had just had some deaths happen around him when it was being made.

    I guess image overshadows the content of something hence he is saying he wants to “go back” to his flag wearing.

    To me Sway has always been Sway and his new song “mercedes Benz” is a banger!
