Kwesi Arthur was born and bred in Tema, Ghana. While he cites his origins from the city on the Bight of Benin and the Atlantic coast of Ghana, there have been rumors that have put this to question. According to the speculations, his parents actually hail from Kogi State in Nigeria. In fact, it was revealed that his younger siblings were born in Lagos, the commercial capital of Nigeria. However, from what is obvious, the rapper doesn’t seem to care about his real roots as he continues to identify himself as an original Tema native. He even identifies with Tema in interviews.

Regardless of where he originally comes from, life was not the easiest for Kwesi growing up.

His parents have three other children – a girl and twin sons. One of the twins has followed their big brother’s career path in the music industry.
