Sway live in session

 Interview

Photo gallery Live photos

Sway was live in session for OneMusic with Ras Kwame's 1st Birthday show. Check out the photos.

He caused a stir by winning the 2005 MOBO for Best Hip Hop Act despite being unsigned, but OneMusic and Ras inparticular have supported Sway 'since early'.

Derek Dasafo aka Sway was our live session artist on Ras's first OneMusic show and played a big part in our week of shows from Ghana, they both spent their teens growing up there.

He made his name touring with Dizzee Rascal and opening shows for Ghostface Killa, Rodney P and Klashnekoff.

It's been a long wait but Sway's debut album called, This Is My Demo is out on February 6th featuring the hit single Little Derek.

If you want to hear what Sway has to say about his musical influences and also a bit of freestyling, click on the interview button.
