  1. I heard it through the grapevine that dude is a very good instrumentalists. I’ve never met/worked with him myself but that’s the word out there. I wonder why we hardly hear of him as of late. I mean, now that the game seems to be bubbling with a lot of different genres and all. Hopefully all is well with him.

  2. What happened to him? Back in skul i could sing all his songs on the Nyankoton album. He predicted in the Seniwa track that 2geda with the royal family ( Mr Oduro, Morris babyface, Dilute etc) they won’t stop till 2017. I jokingly asked my freind whether he will “die” in that year. Pls resurrect my bro.
