While attending Hampton University, Kweku launched his radio career as an on-air personality for 103.9 The Beat, hosting a variety of segments and interviewing some of the industry’s most notable figures. He has since been heard on airwaves in many cities along the East coast. In 2012, Kweku launched Dark Secret International which is dedicated to developing long term business relationships with African, Asian and Hispanic communities across the globe. Alongside his extensive body of work, Kweku’s not-for-profit organization, America to Africa, facilitates educational travel to his native Ghana for central-city Atlanta middle and high school students.
