During the 2000 general elections in Ghana, A Plus released his album "Freedom of Speech," which quickly gained popularity due to his witty and accurate narration of political events. One of the album's tracks, "Mesuro Mpo Na Merekeka Yi O," lambasted politicians and became an instant hit.

 

In 2001, A Plus released "Freedom of Speech II," which warned the new government to improve its performance or risk losing power in 2004. After the 2004 elections, he released "Agye Gon," which analyzed the campaign process.

 

A Plus changed his approach in 2007 with "Letter to Parliament," a poignant song that specifically addressed Ghana's parliament. This song earned him a nomination for Best Hip-life Song at the 2008 Ghana Music Awards.

 

Aside from his music, A Plus has also dabbled in stand-up comedy with considerable success. He is known for his witty and politically incorrect style, but in his latest single, "A Letter to the West," featuring Praye, he takes a more politically conscious approach. The song addresses Africa's leadership crisis and its negative impact on the continent.

 

Some of A Plus's other popular songs include "Two Paddies," "Zilo," "Mansa," "Asem Kese," and "Igwe." Overall, he has established himself as a talented and socially conscious artist who is committed to making a positive impact through his music.
