Paapa Wastik is a conscious African roots-life reggae artist whose musical talent blossomed at age of five in his hometown of Cape Coast, Ghana where music was a predominant part of his culture. By 2002 Paapa Wastik was featured on "Top Radio Street Carnival," the largest festival in Ghana, which left the crowd with a lasting impression, as a result of his energetic stage performance. Within that year Paapa continued the efforts toward releasing his first album "Mama Africa" to rave reviews. 2003 saw him making progressive steps in his talent and music mission by crossing over to the United States where he established an independent record label, Asaase Music Foundation. By September 2012 Paapa Wastik launched his latest album UNITY FOR AFRICA in New York, and is currently on tour in the North America to promote the album.
