Knii Lante…ReverbNation

Knii Lante

Dr. Knii Lante Blankson, otherwise known as Knii Lante is a Ghanaian reggae artist, musician and medical doctor.

In 2010, the musician birthed his first album titled, “Love and Revolution.”

In 2015, Knii debuted on stage at the Rebel Salute amidst other reggae artists such as Tarrus Riley, Sizzla and Etana to name a few.

“Music followed me through medical training and postgraduate medical training. I couldn’t let go. That’s the motivation I bring to the youth” — “do the academics, but also keep your passion,” Knii told Jamaican Observer in March.

Knii loves the balance of healing through his music and his hands and seems to not want it any other way.
