Ghanaian rap and hip life legend Obrafour born in real life as Michael Okyere Darko in a latest interview talked about his mission on diversifying to other music genres, need for an alternative ways for musicians to make money and “Beefs” in the industry.
The Pae Mu Ka rapper revealed how his first trip to the UK ended up leaving him with two birthdays.
“Myoriginal birthday is 16th November but when I gave this certificate to somebody to do my passport for me, he changed it to 18th November and that was my first time of visiting the UK so there was no way I could drag my feet and say they should change it before I leave.”
The “Pae Mu Ka” hit maker on his purported beef with Lord Kenya said;
“There was no animosity or whatsoever between us. And it wasn’t planned. We needed the sales and it really helped. Because any time Lord Kenya dropped his album, people rushed to buy it just to hear if he had thrown shots at me and any time I dropped my album people rushed to get the album just find out if I had thrown shots at him.”
Touching on the dynamics of the Ghana music industry now Obrafour said;
“When I finish my album, there a queue of distributors who wants to pay upfront. Not today anymore like I’m saying the world isn’t static so we would have to evolve. We have something up with Shatta Wale. I’m doing things differently, the song is there but it will come at the right time so they should exercise patience. I’m releasing the whole album in August.” He concluded.
