“When AWKWORD hits you up about a release, you have only one job — pay attention. I mean, this is the brother that scouts and works with best of the best MCs!” — All Around Africa
“I recently partnered with AWKWORD to premiere my new single ‘Africa Get Money.’ In my mind, what sets him apart from the run-of-the-mill PR guys is the fact that he actually believes in the music he promotes. If you’re fortunate enough to work with him, he will back you up 100%. AWKWORD is honest and transparent — he sends regular updates and suggestions to make sure you get the most out of the campaign. His connections are very real, and he clearly has a great rapport with them. They respect his opinion, so you can expect genuine responses… AWKWORD is the real deal. I would strongly recommend working with him.” — Chisom, Rapper, Producer & Creative Director, iLL Company Crew (client)
