Kweku Collins Shares The Love and The Stage at Pitchfork

Kweku Collins Shares The Love and The Stage at Pitchfork

Pitchfork Music Festival - Sunday - Green Stage 2:30pm

Kweku Collins may be only 21 but he has been on the rise for several years. The Evanston-based rapper made clear the distinction between Chicago and Evanston, but shared the love and acceptance he has received from Chicago musicians and fans.

His set was one of the most energetic of the day and the crowd followed suit. The excitement peaked twice throughout the set, first when Collins was joined on stage by Milwaukee’s WebsterX to perform a new song called “Banz”. The second was when Chicago’s Anaji Jones took the stage to perform Kweku’s latest single, “Sisko and Kasidy” with him.

Kweku closed by saying he had been coming to Pitchfork for the last five years and was so gratefully to be performing. Showing he is and always will be a fan, he was later seen dancing with his girlfriend and Jones in the crowd during Chaka Khan’s set.
