Ghanaian Hip life legend Kwabena Okyere Darko aka Obrafour known for hit songs ‘Aboa oni dua’, ‘Pae mu ka’, ‘Nkontompo’ and many any others, has confirmed rumours that he will be branching to radio but what will happen to his music, we’re yet to know.
Obrafour who was influenced by his mother, who sang in the local church choir has grown to be one of the names Ghana can present to the world in all spheres in music world. Known for his versatility, “clean” lyrics and heavy punch lines, he has been more successful and enduring than most of the ‘cats’ who call themselves career MCs.
Speaking in an interview on Pluzz FM, Monday, the Execution Entertainment boss revealed he will be taking a break to start a morning breakfast show on Metro FM in Kumasi come 3rd of November.
Ashanti Region will be getting closer to Obrafour through Politics, Entertainment and all the latest a morning radio show can talk of.
Obrafour has been praised for his lyrical prowess and has stated that he wants to be the most decent lyricist ever out of Ghana.
Can his new position in radio especially on Politics affect his music career in anyway?
Execution Entertainment’s birth commemorated a new vision of pursing projects, based on unselfish reasons. Its first task was to sensitize the Ghanaian public on indiscipline; hence released of the popular soundtrack ‘Ntetie Pa’ which went far to support a campaign against Indiscipline hence we can hope his yet to commence political-like radio show will be clean and not the regular we witness here in Accra.
Obrafour’s fame transcends the borders of Ghana, asked why he wants a career in radio presenting, he said:
“I want to test the other side of me”
“This is not the real deal yet, it’s my first time and I’ll need it to access myself whether I want to do it full time or not”
“…so come 3rd of November, I’ll be on Metro FM to host the morning breakfast show”
“The show will cut across all the daily happening in Ghana; the two segments will run from Politics to Entertainment and then the last hour will allow callers to have their say”
Obrafour has performed a lot in Ghana, Europe as well as the US. His concerts and performances are ones you can anticipate. Speaking on his upcoming tour, the Rap Sofo said:
“My team is through with the ground works and very soon we’ll be going on tour”
“We’ll be touring Italy, Germany, UK and other areas which the fans are yearning to see me on stage”
“This is my first major Europe tour and I’ll be touring with my 5-man team whilst we have an already arranged band to support us outside when we arrive”
He is interested in going to sound production and engineering in the future and loves country music as well as enjoys playing video games. Rap Sofo has been quite for a while but expect him to come back with a bang and give you more bangs for your bucks in his yet to be released ‘Obrafoforo’ album.
