You can read the official message regarding the cancellation below:

Kwame and his team are devastated to announce the cancellation of Kwame’s ‘Please, Get Home Safe Tour’ Australian Tour. With the recent developments surrounding COVID-19, we have no choice but to cancel the upcoming shows which were due to take place in venues over 500 cap.

In recent Kwame news, the rapper released his slick new single ‘schleep’. Here’s what we wrote on the track:

“Running for just over two minutes, the instant classic came about almost as quickly, with Kwame noting that it never was intended to be the gem that it became.

“I made this in 15 minutes as a little throwaway beat for fun, then I realised it was kinda hard so I turned it into a song lmao,” Kwame says of the track.

Accompanied by a hazy, nighttime clip, directed by Kwame and his mate Zain Ayub, both the tune and the video see him flexing his exceptional skills. “I do this shit in my schleep,” he notes, all backed by an intriguing melody and slick beats.

Unfortunately, the only downside is that the tune is over just as quickly as it begins, meaning you’ll be wearing out that repeat button in no time at all.

Of course, for those folks out there wondering where that nifty little sample at the end is from, you’ll actually find the original in a podcast that The Industry Observer conducted with triple j’s Nick Findlay as part of their One Year Later podcast.”
