after joining Up Records, Gh, he started working on his maiden album, dubbed “Money Good,” which shot him to the limelight in the Northern regions.
The album featured top-notch artistes from the Upper East and beyond, including Teflon Flexx, Fad Lan, Cypid, Carblingx, HotMix, ReezyBwoy, and many others.
In an interview with Hype TV, Kilimore blamed his inability to gain dominance in the South on COVID but has since embarked on a radio tour in the northern regions to preach his message of “Money Good’.

In a phone interview with Hype Media’s Ebenezer Akandurugo, Kilimore revealed that, he is determined that “nowhere cool” is going to give him the breakthrough he’s been praying for.
