I spent the last two days hanging out a lot with Obrafour, one of Ghana’s best rappers, and apart from music, we talked about other personal things—-I didn’t know so much about his family, especially his kids.
He has been blessed again with a cute baby who is less than a month old and I am told he has other beautiful children already. The photos of the baby were really CUTE—-I wish I could have shared them with you.
From our conversation about his music, sense of direction, retirement and what he thinks of his achievements so far, Obrafour came up as a humble individual who is very much engulfed in a new passion of finding God and working for Him.
Perhaps he does not see his achievements that much of a big deal. But that does not mean the substance of his work can be undermined.
Obrafour has fallen in love with singing—-after all, he has done all the rap he could, he said. He seems to have achieved all he wanted with rap, leaving behind a legacy of prolific rap music which we all enjoyed and will continue to be part of us.
His first album-Pae Mu Ka gave a different meaning to Hiplife. With his not so ordinary twi diction fused with heavy punch lines over loud beats, he helped in paving the way for Twi Rap…
Many have said Pae Mu Ka is the best Hiplife album of all time and I cannot find any out there to take me from buying into this statement…I spoke to him about this, Click Here To See What He Had To Say.
More important, others think Obrafour’s rap legacy is such that he is or should be crowned the Best Ghanaian Rapper—-I am yet to find a matching contestant. Ghanaian rapper-M.anifest recently said this too.
To me, it takes more than a talent to achieve all these—dedication and desire to make a mark are pushing factors.
What do you think?
Is Obrafour the Best Ghanaian Rapper Ever?
Is His ‘Pae Mu Ka’ Album the best Hiplife Album?
This is what Reggie Rockstone had to say to the above…
