M.anifest is a true original. Born and raised in Accra, Ghana, the charismatic Hip Hop artist migrated to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis & St. Paul where he was voted City Pages Songwriter of the year after his critically acclaimed 2007 debut ‘Manifestations’. In 2010, MTV spotlighted M.anifest as a hot artist to look out for on the program ‘Seven’. He had been described as an artist with “an incredible gift” (the run-off groove) who possesses “the kind of assured, joyful, ruminative voice that made Mos Def into Hollywood's favorite conscious-rap star" (City Pages). After only beginning to pursue music seriously as a vocation in 2005, the Ghanaian native has already stacked up an impressive résumé: including on stage collaborations with Femi Kuti, Damon Albarn (Gorillaz), Amadou and Miriam, Mick Jones (The Clash), Tony Allen, the Noisettes; plus many more. Allhiphop.com profiled him (along with K’naan) as one of four African Artists “Stormin’ into the Hip Hop World” (2009). In 2010, he played the Festa Dos Mundos festival with Africa Express in Spain in front of a 50,000 crowd and was part of the historic PUMA world cup showcase in Paris. His Music was also featured on the official Nike and Fader Magazine 2010 World Cup Podcast. M.anifest is also a recipient of the American Composers Forum's "Minnesota Emerging Artist" Award (2010). His independently released debut: ‘Manifestations’ (2007), led to the album being picked up by Jakarta Records/Groove Attack and re-released by the indie label in Europe and Japan. The Ghanaian MC is currently is riding high off his official 2011 sophomore release, ‘Coming to America: Immigrant Chronicles’. He is also prominently featured on compositions of the super Group called ’Rocket Juice & The Moon’ (Damon Albarn, Tony Allen & Flea of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers). Look for his verses on ‘The Unfadable’.
