South African singer, songwriter and director, Aewon Wolf, has come out to explain the reasons why he had to disappear from the limelight for a while.
Arnold Philips, known by the stage name Aewon Wolf, had decided to stay off music for a while and make effort in knowing who he truly is and what he truly wants. The break he took wasn’t just about self-discovery, but also to mourn the loss of a family member and one who was suffering from stroke.
Aewon Wolf opened up to City Press publication:
I took a break just to work on myself. In 2016 towards the end of that year I had a huge wake up call. A father figure of mine passed away from stroke. Three months after that a father of mine suffered a stroke. After all that I had to out things on pause for a bit.
The entire time I didn’t even realise that I was not happy. I was going through the motions; giggling, drinking, partying and living the rock and roll lifestyle.
The Cool Kids rapper also stated that he was not into addictive narcotics but his indulgence in it affected his professional life. Because of his father’s condition, he had to tell his business partners that he would be going on a break, which he did.
Aewon Wolf said:
It all had me thinking what my bigger picture and my purpose were. Am I gonna have a story of the things I’ve done then what?
Three years after taking a break from music, the talented rapper made a massive comeback with the release of his album titled, “The Return.”
Aewon Wolf has the following albums to his credit: Darkest Winter, Proudly South African, Choose Love and The Return.
His new album has made his name to reign again in the South African hip hop. We anticipate more from the talented singer.
