Biography of Daasebre Gyamenah

Many are those who know ace highlife singer, Daasebre Gyamenah as “Ahoofe”, a name his fans gave him after the release of his hit song, “Ahoofe”, which literally means beautiful or the handsome one.

One other name that the singer has in his “portmanteau” that many of his fans may not know is Abubakar Siddiq.

Daasebre is a Muslim and Abubakar Siddiq is his Islamic name.

“Daasebre was born into Islam. His late mother was a Muslim who died when Daasebre was only five years old.

Daasebre was christened as Kojo Gyamenah and as a royal he later added “Daasebre” to distinguish himself from others with the same name.

Later on in his life he adopted the Islamic name in line with his faith.

“As a man of the people, Daasebre does not see why Christians and Muslims should be at each other’s throat over doctrinal differences.

And that is why he has separated his work from his religion to enable him to preach peace and morality to people from different religious backgrounds.

Daasebre was preparing to release a gospel album to underscore his love for God and also thank the Almighty for seeing him through the difficult times he faced in the London jail.
