Sat, 29 Apr 2017 10:05:10 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/vvip/ VVIP https://www.beatznation.com/profile/vvip/ VVIP, formerly known as VIP (Vision In Progress) is a Ghanaian Hiplife music group.

Made up of Reggie Rockstone (Reginald Ossei), Prodigal (Joseph Nana Ofori), and Zeal, formerly known as Lazzy (Abdul Hamid Ibrahim) from a ghetto suburb in Accra, Ghana called Nima.

VVIP

FORMATION

The founder of this group is actually Friction (Musah Haruna) who formed this group with a friend of his who later had to leave the group for the U.S. to finish his education. So Friction proposed the idea to four people (Promzy, Lazzy, Prodigal, Bone-later left the group) and before they knew it, the five of them were performing at ghetto parties, clubs, street festivals etc.

Friction’s dog, Chicago, was also an official member of the group. You could hear the dog growling at the end of their tracks from the late 1990s. Eventually Chicago died.

ALBUMS

In 1997, VIP presented at a street carnival. It was then that a Ghanaian television-presenter, Blakofe (aka Akua Manfo) and a radio-presenter called Michael Smith discovered the group. Blakofe became their manager, and Michael Smith gave them a contract by the name, Precise Music. In 1998, they released their first album, Bibi Baa O, they were famous all over Accra. They became the most popular Hiplife group in Ghana. In 2000, they released their second album, Ye De Aba, which was more successful than their first album. After the second album, Friction felt that it was his time to work as an individual artist and quit the group. The group now had three members (Promzy, Prodigal and Lazzy) and released a third album in 2001 called Lumbe Lumbe Lumbe with the smashing hit “Daben na Odo Beba”. However the hip life group conquered the Ghana music charts with their 2003 album Ahomka Womu; their single also named “Ahomka Womu” was number one on the Ghanaian charts for over 20 weeks. VIP won five awards at the Ghana Music Awards from the hit single and the group gained international exposure after this success. Since then, the group has been touring worldwide. They are now among the most famous artists in Ghana. Promzy then later left the group to work as a sole artist but according to him he says he did not break out of the group.

Following the exit of Promzy, Reggie Rockstone, the godfather of Ghanaian rap who back in the mid 90’s christened the new genre Hiplife, joined the group. The new group’s name metamorphosed in VVIP and they have since produced smash singles like “Selfie”, “Skolom” and “Dogoyaro”.

DOCUMENTARY

VIP have launched their 110-minute documentary, Home Grown:Hiplife in Ghana; produced and directed by the American independent filmmaker, Eli Jacobs-Fantauzzi. Some artists present at the launching were Reggie Rockstone, Hashim, Tinny, Sidney, Tic Tac, Mzbel, Rab Bakari, Faze of Nigeria and other artists from Africa and the Caribbean. And to celebrate the release of Home Grown, BDNP (Boogie Down Nima Productions) is set to travel a worldwide release tour of the film in several countries including Brazil, UK, India, South Africa, Nigeria, Canada, Italy, Norway, Jamaica, and the United States.

His two younger brothers, Kwaku Nsiah Boamah nicknamed “Stone” and Kwaku Nsiah Amankwah nicknamed “Kunta Kinte”, also perform nowadays as the hiplife duo “Bradez”. His parents expected him to become a physician, yet he gained interest in rap music from a very young age, having written his own songs and performed in local shows ever since he attended the Anglican Senior High School in Kumasi.

This resulted in one of the memorable feuds the Ghanaian music scene has seen, with Obrafour challenging Okyeame Kwame to a rap battle on the streets which was never honored. In 2011, after Obrafour had apologized for his actions Okyeame Kwame explained he declined Obrafour’s challenge because there was no need for it at the time, as winning Artist of the Year was vindicative enough.

Out of many DJ’s of all time from the start of turntable culture comes DJ Manni, an Influence in the history of sound system and is ubiquitous without doubts and that makes him a groundbreaking DJ.

DJ Manni biography profile

​Emmanuel Kwadjo Denkyi born 6 August known in the showbiz circle as DJ Manni is a Ghanaian disc jockey and a radio host based in London. He runs reggae/dancehall program on Hot Lava radio. He is well known for his mix tapes, support for reggae/dancehall and promoting talented acts. He is considered as one of the most important reggae/dancehall hierophant;, helping bring artists with good music to a mainstream audience both locally and internationally. Manni gained attention with his first debut mix tape in 2013, it experimented into conscious reggae songs and hardcore dancehall songs but he had already released couple of afro beats, reggae/dancehall mix tape in 2012.

EARLY LIFE

Emmanuel Kwadjo Denkyi was born in Nkawkaw a town in south Ghana and is the capital of Kwahu West Municipal district, a district in the Eastern region of Ghana. According to Manni, he lived in Ghana where he stayed at Kwahu, then later moved to Taifa then to Accra Nima and finally settled at Newtown (Akotex). However, because he stayed in a Hausa speaking area he could only communicate in housa and not his native tongue , he was returned to Kwahu to learn how to speak Twi. He had primary education at Taifa pre-school and afterwards moved to Greenhill international at St. John’s. After that he also school at Mpreaso kwahu for a few months before traveling to London.

In London, he was enrolled in Warwick school for boys from 1996 to 2000, before long, he was sent back to Ghana because of his short temper and numerous reports by teachers of him missing class and being involved in robberies in and outside of school due to his frazzle attitude. His ossified behavior did not warrant him to even be hosted in Accra, so his dad was forced to take him Tarkwa to enroll him in Tarkwa Secondary school. He was barely in the school for two terms because his anomalous behavior did not favor him;his father ordered the school not to let him leave but he jumped the wall and left all his belongings and came back to Accra for a year and returned to London.

DJ Manni

Upon all his mulish behavior, he was very intelligent and mentally dapper. On his return to London, he joined a football academy in East London for a year, then studied GNVQ in sports & recreation and even got his UK F.A Level 1 coaching badge. His compelling style of play got him a step ahead of his colleagues; he was ranked as the top most player. Nevertheless, due to some personal decisions he made, he decided not to play football again. After a long stay in London, he took some time off to spend the vacation in Ghana. That was somewhere 2008, during his stay he made time to listen to lot Ghanaian music. To his surprise, he developed so much love and interest for Ghana reggae/dancehall songs after he heard Iwan’s “still love me” and Shatta Wale’s “Anastasia”.

There and there, he said to himself “reggae/dancehall will be maximal in Ghana some years to come”. He enthusiastically started collecting more reggae/dancehall songs made in Ghana as a hobby, within some short period he left to London. After a while he was in Ghana again purposely to analyze the trending value reggae/dancehall and other songs in the country; it was through his analysis that it came to his notice that Ghanaian DJ’s do not support their own especially the talented youths who found it difficult to break through the limelight. Afterwards he left to London.
On his arrival after few days, a very good friend of his paid him a surprise visit, fortunately for his friend; he had the chance to access Manni’s music player, upon listening to countless back to back hit ear candies for hours, he anchored in and motivated Manni to see the business side of all the music he had collected and make profit out of it. The indispensible requirement of hard work is self discipline and success is also possible when only you can overcome the natural tendency to cut corners and take the easy way, with this as his mind set he made a concrete decision to take on Disc Jockey as a profession.

BREAKTHROUGH

The achievement of one’s goal is assured the moment one commits his/herself to it, Manni is selfless and dedicated individual who is very mindful that he is a product of his environment, so he chose an environment that will best develop him towards his goal though he had no idea about disc jockey, he had couple of Caribbean friends who were already into the profession so he allied himself with one of them by name Squeechie Don from Jamaica somewhere 2012 who was then working with Muzkradio in London. Lasting success is possible when you can discipline yourself to work hard for long time, Manni started practicing the art of disc jockey; he invested almost all the time he had to master the art of the profession. It took him days, months and years of practice to become a master on his own. He was fast to realize his potential immediately his friend planted the idea of making profit out of his music collection. During the period by which Manni was practicing at the grass root stage, Squeenchie Don had also established an online radio at that time called Hot Lava radio based in London. Manni worked consciously, deliberately & continuously that earned him some credit to go on air (Hot Lava radio) to showcase his newly found profession.

Working consistently was his default mechanism so he went on to release his first mix tape which was an absolute bombshell based on the fact that the response he got from the masses, friends, family and other industry players got him addicted to the profession like a junky on a cocaine. His next project was a mix for Shatta Wale, to his surprise the mix flowered him up to limelight. Since music travels fast music freaks are all over hunting any pleasing music materials; President of Ghana Motion Inc., Mr. Kwame Asenso called DJ Manni congratulating him for a good production work (mix tape) done after he had the chance to soak in the mix tape. Immediately, opportunity knocked on Manni’s door; Mr. Prosper Asenso pledged to upload any of DJ Manni’s mix tape on his website. Shatta Wale’s mix had over 3000+ downloads.
​He flourished to fame properly in 2008 after he joined forces with Kingsman Djgashie GH Bekoe to establish a sound system viz One love Africa with the aim of promoting talented musician through mix tapes. Manni released the volume 2 of the Shatta’s wale mix tape. Along the line he discovered other talented artists; Stonebwoy, Kaakie, Iwan, Rudebwoy Ranking and the likes who were equally good, by means of promoting their songs, he released Ghana dancehall volume 1, without doubts it also did well on the music market but did not get maximum attention. Before late Manni realized he could have done better, which he came back pre-programmed this time, he released the second volume of Ghana dancehall, as promised it was also uploaded on www.ghanamotion.com, the mix tape has over 12,000+ download.

Adomaa Biography Profile

She is the first of five children. Raised in a mission home, she learnt very early how to take on responsibility and to look after others before herself.

EDUCATION

In 2004, she moved back to Ghana, the country that she now calls home, where she subsequently attended Wesley Girls High School. She then went on to pursue a journalism degree at the Ghana Institue of Journalism, and practiced in the field thereafter.

MUSIC CAREER

Adomaa biography profile

Her foray into music started with the release of the hit mashups Baafira-Adonai and the Evolution of Gh Music, and now, after the release of her first original music project, Afraba the EP, Adomaa the full time artiste has come to stay.

She just won the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards Unsung Artiste 2016, confirming her status as one of the brightest young talents in Ghana at the moment.

 Adomaa Biography Profile

Adomaa grew up in a very musical family and as such, music played a big part in her life from very early on. She developed a strong attachment to a certain kind of music; a passion for the kind of sound that is not merely listened to and moved on, but the kind that reaches deep into the listener’s soul, deeply affects their emotions, and has the power to influence perspectives.

Adomaa biography profile

For the longest time, music has been her source of strength when life gets tough. She hopes that through herself, she can provide others the same type of strength that she has found in her art.

– I love to sing. It’s my getaway, my only sanctity. Singing soothes my soul when my world seems to crumble. It’s my bout of joy, joy which is only augmented if this same effect is attained by people when I sing. – Adomaa

 

Adomaa biography profile

Adomaa is bringing a refreshing new surge of unique artistry to the world of Ghanaian music, with her personal style: an exclusive melange of jazz, soul, highlife and afrobeat, with a voice that may sound sweet and light, but has the ability to reach into the depths of a listener’s soul. As more than just a musician, Adomaa’s desire is to personally touch people’s lives and simply bring them joy through her music, as well as create an individualistic blend of jazz and Afro pop culture that relates to as many people as possible. Her desire is not just to be an entertainer, but to be a relevant entertainer, that performs and shares her talent with true meaning.

The one genre of music that spoke first to me was Jazz in 1998, when I heard the song L.O.V.E by Michael Buble from the soundtrack of the movie, Parent Trap. Since then, I’ve followed the likes of Michael Buble to the sultry vintage sounds of Ella Fitzgerald, Sinatra etc. – Adomaa

 

 Adomaa biography profile

There are many adjectives to describe the kind of sonic art Adomaa produces; she can be sweet yet soulful, soothing or sultry, vintage but classy, African and creative. But above all, Adomaa is just herself, a simple, down-to-earth soul with a positive outlook on life, and her mission right now is to spread and share her music, talent and art far and wide so that as many people as possible can benefit and find inspiration from the very thing from which she draws hers. Yenkor!

Worlasi Biography Profile

DMCA.com Protection Status

Worlasi is an intriguing contrast: hyper confident yet humble, hungry for knowledge and simultaneously overflowing with it, overly optimistic but keen-sighted to life’s harsh realities. These attributes bleed raw into his music, resonating through his rough, baritone soul and the experimental undertones of his music in a painfully linear industry.

His breakthrough single, Ay3 Adz3 set him apart from his peers He caps off such focused and realistic lyricism with his mixtape project, Nus3 released in September. Nus3 is a super jumbo bundle of motivation, assertiveness and self-
belief. This was his first major project and it already has people calling him a god. He released a second major project which has also nothing short of breathtaking and shot compelling visuals for two of his singles- One Life and Nukata.

Since then he has worked and bagged features with artistes like EL, M.anifest, Hammer of Da Last Two, Sena Dagadu and shared songs with the likes of Sarkodie and Kwaw kese.

He has shared stage with some of Ghana’s finest musical acts on platforms such as ACCRA [dot]ALT’s Sabolai Radio, rock group, Dark Suburb’s Awakening concert, Beatphreaks, The Unheard Voices etc.

Embodying a die hard rap dream, Lil Shaker has pulled himself by the bootstraps as a bystander into a frontrunner in GH rap.

Ironically, Shaker’s name has nothing to do with his music game. He was christened Lil Shaker for breaking ankles on the basketball court. These days, all he does is break beats on the mic and the consoles.

Shaker is born Phillip Yaw Atiemo to Eugene Atiemo and Jasmine Ameko, a chemical engineer and graphic/set designer respectively. He heeded his call to music while a student at the Accra High School. He formed his own set, “Graveyard,” and made baby steps to a legit career rapping over beats of Hip Hops majors like Nas, Ja Rule etc. January 2004 marked his coming of age. He broke from Graveyard and teamed up with fellow rapper ….. to form the Hiplife duo “Kafungbe.”The turning point in his career came when he met Jayso who advised them to switch to Hip Hop beats. Jazzed by the in-form hip life trend at the time, Shaker stuck to his stance.

Infected by Jayso’s production skills, he won the battle of wills with his mother over her PC which became his fi rst production station. He started to record himself and friends: Screw, Joey and Killmatic (Mic Wreckerz) Shaker was stung into action by the Skillions Demotapes and forged ahead with coaching from Jayso. With the game getting thicker, Shaker sought to standout of the horde. He schemed a pidgin tract to chip some attention his way. “And So Whut” proved his trump card and he got him a deal with Skillions Records. The single caused a stir on the Hip Hop scene and attracted the legendary Wanluv Kubolor to appear on the remix.

With his reputation build and his notoriety on the rise, Shaker put himself to the test. He dropped two singles off his solo mixtape. His confirmation came in two days. The single –“School” – copped 70 000 downloads and later the Birthday Mixtape topped 10,000 downloads. Shaker has hogged the airwaves for a minute, producing hits like Breathe by Dblack and kwaku T featuring Jayso and Facebook Girl/Facebook Boy featuring killmatic, Tiffany and Jane. He is currently signed to Ghana’s biggest record label & multimedia company, BBnZ Live.

With his reputation build and his notoriety on the rise, Shaker put himself to the test. He dropped two singles off his solo Birthday mixtape. He became main stream in 2010 with the release of this mixtape under the Skillions Records imprint. He had success with this mixtape with songs such as LETTER TO JACKIE APPIAH, FACEBOOK BOY and SCHOOL, which took him to all parts of the country to perform. His hit single, I NO DEY SEE YOU SEF saw him bring together the likes of Sarkodie, Edem, Joey B, Raquel and Bra Kevin on one song . His talent has not gone unnoticed as his nickname Captain Hook was bestowed upon him by fans for his excellent choruses.

In March 2013, Fuse reached the number one spot in the iTunes World Chart, cementing his status as the first Ghanaian musician in history to achieve such a feat. With over 11 million Views on You Tube in 2012 alone, this year is set to see Fuse ODG rise to new heights. His Latest Single ‘Antenna’ Ft Wyclef Jean has the whole industry buzzing.

Biography Profile of Ghanaian Music Artiste Fuse ODG www.beatznation.com .jpg

Born Richard Abiona, the singer grew up in London but returned to Ghana, West Africa at a later stage. This provided him with the opportunity to soak up the culture, which is now evident in his music. Fuse describes his sound as ‘life-changing music seasoned with his African roots’ and his aim is to elevate the world through music.

Fuse ODG is the pioneer of a movement called TINA, which is an acronym for This Is New Africa. TINA is a concept which urges Africans in the Motherland and the diaspora to use their skills to rebuild their community and show the world the more beautiful side of Africa.

Often compared to Akon and K’naan who share similar backgrounds with him, Fuse made history by being the first ever UK act to be nominated for a Ghana Music Award, receiving two nominations in 2012. As well as being a versatile artist and producer, Fuse’s greatest joy is giving back to the community. Through a mobile studio, the Ghana Music award nominee works with young people helping them to utilise and explore their own artistic dreams.

Using his skills as a producer, Fuse also works with ex-offenders and runs a group called ‘Escape’. This allows Fuse to still be a part of his growing community. With a build-up of free music to keep fans at the edge of their seats and anticipating his forthcoming album “The Buzz”

Fuse ODG’s musical journey began to gain momentum after a trip to Ghana in 2011. There, he met up with the explosive combination of Africa’s no. 1 producer Killbeatz and Ghana’s no.1 female rapper Tiffany to create the international hit ‘Azonto’. After its viral release in November 2011 scooping over a one million views in a matter weeks, ‘Azonto’ became one of YouTube’s most watched videos in the UK that month, cementing Fuse’s status in the afrobeats genre. Fuse ODG is now referred to as one of the pioneers of the ‘Azonto’ dance movement internationally, recently receiving the attention and support from the Prime Minister David Cameron.

‘Azonto’ has quickly become an anthem for the Ghanaian dance craze of the same name. It fuses commercial pop sounds with an African rhythm and distinctive percussion resulting in an infectious ‘afrobeats’ sound. This explains its dominance in the club scenes around the world including countries such as Nigeria, Canada, US, Holland, Denmark, Italy, France and of course Ghana, where Fuse originates from.

In September 2012, Fuse ODG unleashed a musical offering in the form of an EP (album) called “The Buzz!” The aptly titled EP reflects the international success surrounding Fuse and his smash hit ‘Azonto’, which reached number 1 in Australia and New Zealand and reached number 8 in the iTunes international chart. In the past few months, Fuse ODG has toured Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, Egypt, Uganda, Amsterdam, Belgium, Scotland and Cyprus. Fuse has also performed alongside American HipHop star Rick Ross in Nigeria and RnB superstar Sisqo in Uganda.

The ‘Off Da Ground Team’ went on a promotional blitz in the run up to the release of Fuse ODG’s eagerly anticipated EP on 5th September 2012. The EP Launch took place at the prestigious Under the Bridge venue located on Chelsea Football Grounds in London and featured the likes of Choice FM DJ and comedian Eddie Kadi, comedian and host Simply Andy and an array of supporting artists.

Hot on the heels of the successful of the EP (album) launch, Fuse released his second single ‘Antenna’ after launching an international dance competition referred to as #AntennaDance. The viral videos for ‘Antenna’ accumulated approximately 1,000,000 views on You Tube in less than two months. The top ten competition entries can be viewed on www.fuseodg.com.

The international response to ‘Antenna’ has phenomenal, with it being play listed on BBC Radio 1Xtra and Choice FM, two of the UK’s biggest radio stations.

The ‘Antenna’ EP has been available to pre-order on iTunes since the 1st April and as of the 5th April, has already reached number 32 in the dance album chart. The ‘Antenna’ EP includes remixes featuring Wyclef and TS7.

‘Antenna’ is another milestone that is set to catapult Fuse ODG into the stratosphere.

Michael Kwabena Okyere Darko is dubbed Ghana’s rap sofour (priest) and owns the Execution records label. He was one of the first hiplife artistes to release a compilation album of other musicians (Execution Diary) and has had hits like Who born you by mistake, Adefoode, Oye Ohene, etc. Obrafour has been praised for his lyrical prowess and has stated that he wants to be the most decent lyricist ever out of Ghana.

Biography Profile of Ghanaian Music Artiste Obrafour www.beatznation.com .jpg

Obrafour grew up with music. He was influenced by his mother, who sang in the local church choir. He then got the chance to sing at church at his mother’s invitation and as fate would have it, he formed a quartet during his secondary school which performed Gospel songs. His mum’s death caused him to stop singing.

Through some encouragement by some friends, he decided to take up music more seriously. At that time, Reggie Rockstone, the Godfather of hiplife, had released his successful “Maka a maka” album and Obrafour was inspired. He had also realized the emergence of artistes like Ex Doe, Chicago, Akyeame, and Lord Kenya, etc. He decided to be different from these pioneers and create his own style.

As he began attending various auditions and performances, he met a few bumps and setbacks until he met Edward Nana Poku Osei aka Hammer. Hammer was an amateur beat maker and did not take the music business seriously until he met Obrafour. From Hammer’s own words, they ‘clicked’. For Obrafour and Hammer (the Last 2) fans, the rest is history.

Mon, 23 May 2016 22:19:44 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/wanlov/ Wanlov https://www.beatznation.com/profile/wanlov/ Wanlov the Kubolor was born in Romania and grew up in Ghana. Raised in a home where both parents were avid collectors of music and other forms of eclectic art, it is no wonder the Kubolor has a unique perspective on life, a worldview evident in his insightful consciousness, and empathetic presentation of the human condition.

Hailed as one of the most refreshing and original artistes of the times, this well-deserved distinction is largely due to his decision to buck the current trend of his generation and live out his true roots. Kubolor’s love and respect for nature is felt not only in his music, which is delivered in his melodic accent, but also in his hallmark sense of style which is organic at its core. This choice to be unique has resulted in him being embraced proudly by a new generation of people the world over for his authenticity and flair. For his diverse fan base, the Kubolor reaches them not only sonically, but also culturally and visually, a combination held together by his own special and highly appealing brand of consciousness.

Kubolor, true to his support of authenticity, is the flag-bearer of the Ghanaian-based production house Pidgen Music, a label headed by Panji Anoff, a guru producer who played a major role in the birth of Hiplife through Reggie Rockstone and the Hiplife group Talking Drums and still plays a major role on the Ghana and World Music scene with artists like King Ayisoba on the Pidgen Music roster.

Out of Wanlov’s musical and personal experiences, he has succeeded in creating a space to share his art comfortably. In refusing to modify his versatile style to fit the mould of pre-existing genres, Kubolor hopes to inspire others to create a personal evolutionary path for positive change.

Wanlov’s widely acclaimed versatility is heard on his debut album “Green Card”, released in 2007 on his return to Ghana after a 7-year stay in the USA. Being nominated at the 2008 Ghana Music Awards for “Discovery of The Year”, “Record of The Year”, “Video of The Year” & “Hip Hop Song of The Year”, shows that Kubolor’s contribution has made a strong impression on his people. Already being referred to as a classic in less than a year since its release, Kubolor’s debut album, “Green Card”, went on to capture the hearts and minds of the people the world over.

Wanlov Biography Profile - www.beatznation.com .jpg

On any given day in Accra, Ghana’s capital, it is likely that you might see the barefooted, skirt-clad Kubolor; walking about alone or with fellow musicians and playing his two koshkas (pendulum shakers) or his atenteben (bamboo flute) as his fans, both young and old, listen, dance and sing along. Undoubtedly, Wanlov the Kubolor is happiest amongst the people he says inspire him to be the truest version of himself.

Though at home with his fans, he is also no stranger to the company of internationally acclaimed musicians. Wanlov the Kubolor has had the honor of collaborating with Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, Ghana’s Rap pioneer / Highlife legend, and Reggie Rockstone, the Godfather of Hiplife, amongst other well respected artists worldwide.

His flair for the extraordinary has netted him wide acclaim and, in this well-earned popularity, Kubolor was recently chosen as one of only five artists to represent Africa as a lyricist/songwriter in the “Routes to Roots” project. A collaborative initiative conceived by Bigga Fish, a UK-based organization that engages young people through creative mediums, “Routes to Roots: Bamako” is an educational music project with about 20 artists, carefully selected from Africa and the UK, to record an album that represents a nice slice of the cultural spectrum.

No doubt, Wanlov’s music is stimulating to hear, but it has been said that the Kubolor’s special brand of music is best experienced in a live show. True to this statement are the phrases used by Kubolor concert goers in universities, theatres and clubs throughout the United States, the U.K. and West Africa. “Beautiful”, “He made me cry”, and “Dope lyricist!” are likely to be heard as people describe their experiences at his shows. His eclectic musical style has blurred the lines of creativity and mass appeal. Testament to this is the worldwide radio play he currently enjoys. Indeed, interviews on college radio stations, national news media and the BBC World Service show that Kubolor’s music crosses all boundaries, real or imaginary.

According to Wanlov, his ability to appeal to all people and to relate to the broad spectrum of the human experience is a result of growing up between two worlds. He speaks candidly of his Ghanaian and Romanian parentage, which created him as a person too light to be seen as African and too dark to be considered European. His experiences as he sought to navigate an existence in these two worlds, neither of which fully claimed him, influenced him to write “My Skin” and the award winning song “Human Being” which has the distinction of not only winning the 2006 WCS International Song Contest, but also serving as the soundtrack to the anti-child trafficking campaign led by UNICEF and the Ministry of Women and Children’s Affairs in Ghana.

Wanlov the Kubolor, an authentic individual, is a true rascal and a self styled adventurer. As a listener, his life-force, pure talent and lyrical skill will engage you as he entertains, informs and shares. As the nexus of Pidgen Music, the Kubolor is adamant and true to his desires to positively impacting the quality of life for all.

His current single, Lavender has charted on more than 6 major radio stations in Ghana.

Amankwaa was born in Adum, a suburb of Kumasi but he was mainly raised by his grandmother in Bantama (another suburb of Kumasi). Growing up in a house filled with his entire extended family and sleeping in a room with 5 cousins, an auntie and his grandmother, the values of family were instilled in him at an early age. These values are shared in most of his songs.

 

Ko-Jo Cue bipgraphy profile

Ko-Jo Cue gained admission to the Kumasi Anglican High School which is famous for being the alma mater musicians such as Okyeame Kwame, Lord Kenya and Noble Nketiah. It was here that he started seriously considering music as a career path. In 2008, he met two aspiring musicians K-Wu and Kuul D (together known as Soulbrothaz) who introduced him to Macfancy, a 3rd year pharmacy student at KNUST who made beats in his spare time.

The two hooked up and started recording in a bedroom studio owned by a fellow Nigerian student called Okechukwu a.k.a Drillmeister. Macfancy will make the beats and mix the recordings afterwards. The two will go on to record over 10 songs (some of which made it onto his first mixtape) and Ko-Jo operating under the name Jazzy Flo posted the songs on his Facebook and Reverbnation page, attracting the attention of Tallal Sangari, the C.E.O of Primitive Music who offered the young up-start a deal. Under the guidance of Tallal Sangari a.k.a Tee, Ko-Jo Cue adopted his new moniker and started a journey to discover himself as an artist beginning with the release of his first mixtape.

In January 2010, Ko-Jo Cue released the first instalment in a series he called ‘Growing Pains’. The project which was titled ‘N.A.T.H.A.N’ attracted the attention of the online community on Facebook as well as the major Ghanaian blogs and websites . It was the first project of its kind by a Kumasi artiste and it garnered him regional recognition. Within the space of three months, he added two more instalments ‘N.O.N.A’ and ‘Now And Forever’ with the latter earning him respect amongst the Ghanaian Hip-Hop community and the former spawning his first viral hit with a track titled ‘Head Nod’ produced by Peewee.

The song made it onto radio rotation in his hometown and even caught the attention of Bradez and Okyeame Kwame (two of the biggest acts from his hometown as at that time). He then took 2 more months to release the last instalment in the series which he titled ‘The Wait’. The buzz generated by ‘Head Nod’ attracted artists out of his region and soon he found himself working with acts like Kay-Ara, Klu, and Pappykojo. 

In April, he released a single called Corolla Music and it went viral sparking a conversation about local hip-hop on YFM. The success of the song caught the attention of E.L who reached out to him so the two acts could collaborate. E.L also went an extra mile to secure a deal for him at BBnZ Live.  In August he released Low Key, the result of his collaboration with E.L and the single quickly became a favourite on radio playlists across the country. It also served as the first single to his then anticipated mixtape The Shining.

In September he released The Shining as his first project on BBnZ Live. The project turned out to be more than a mixtape and felt more like a free album. It was downloaded more than 12000 times and earned critical praise from pundits and fans alike. Fellow artistes Wanlov, M3nsa, Dex Kwasi & M.anifest praised the project as one of the standouts of the year.

INSPIRATION

Internationally , Kanye West’s music has been his inspiration from day one and still is. As well as Jon Bellion, Dr. Dre, Timbaland, Boi-1da, Ryan Leslie & Ryan Lewis.

Locally,  none other than Killbeatz, Sarz, King illkeyz & Legendary beatz.

I am not just a hip hop beat maker/producer. Even as an artiste I am no fan of limiting myself to a specific genre. Certain factors are slowing my work pace; my life as a student & running into a system malfunction not long ago losing a handful of projects but I am going to catch on and do this all day. I plan to work with everyone who wants to make good music.

Drvmroll is currently aiding certain exceptional talents and plans introducing them to the industry in due time.

EARLY LIFE

Killbeatz played the drums and keyboard in the choir at church since he was 16. He then went into secular music,  a transition he feels happened naturally because of the passion he had .

He became a rapper and eventually went into music production upon giving the chance to produce his own song after he wasn’t too pleased with the “output” of one producer during one of his music sessions.

He reported to the manager of the studio and insisted he could produce his own beat as he could already play the keyboard, and all he needed was help with the setup , as he had no prior knowledge in using DAWs at the time.  The manager’s reaction after he produced …”You are better than the producer , You need to come and work ! ” , so KillBeatz started working and eventually all customers preferred him over the previous producer.

Joseph Addison acquired the name “KillBeatz” from his friend paedae because he is said to “kill” every beat or production he laid his hands on.

Ghanaian Music Producer Kaywa helped KillBeatz with the mixing of his productions in the initial stages of his career.

Genres: Hip Hop , Afro Beats, Reggae, RnB

He started making beats in 2006 and his dream began when he met legendary Ghanaian music producer Hammer of The last 2 .  KOA was just a rapper then,  very passionate about his raps. To cut the long story short he (Hammer) saw something in him others and KOA himself didn’t see. So from 2001 till 2005 he mixed studying In high school with studying beats.

King of Accra Biography Profile

In 2005 KOA graduated and was waiting to further his education. During that waiting time, he practiced a lot and gained employment in some studios. His last employment led him to Sarkodie/Guru where they recorded lots of songs, and when the first single from them dropped , KOA had already started making heads turn due to the new style he introduced into the scene with his “KOA styled” hip hop beats. By then he was already in university in his sophomore year he teamed up with Sark to release what would become a hit single “Daabi” and that really set the production ball rolling for Ghanaians to accept him as a go to producer if one needed insane beats.

About inspiration i have lots of things i reach out to for inspiration like the thoughts of success, music itself inspires me and the ability to make people move also inspires me,

its hard to pinpoint all the things that motivate me to be greater but if you come from where i am from and you do not get royalties from producing great jams that get on radio then you would be motivated to elevate your status and make the situation better for the whole music scene or yourself.

KOA also derives motivation from his fans when they reach out to him on social media which makes him feel appreciated and motivated to do more.

 King of Accra Biography Profile

KOA has worked with people like Sarkodie, Guru, Big Klef, Rashid Mettal, Samini, Trigmatic, Opanka, Raquel, Edem, EL, Manifest,

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 11:30:49 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/slimbo/ Slimbo https://www.beatznation.com/profile/slimbo/ Highly regarded for his top-notch creativity & skills, he considered one of Ghana’s top ubiquitous producers. Slimbo, is a gifted Ghanaian Record Producer, mixing engineer/Musician, and Song writer, who has won the hearts of many and worked with legendaries across Ghana and beyond. His sound is mostly identified with a deep voice tag saying “SlimmmBooo!” in his beats.

Genre: R&B, Hip-Hop, African Rhythms, Funk, Pop, Reggae, Soul, Jazz/ All round Genres

EARLY LIFE

At age five, Slimbo gained attention in the music world with the help of his father who has 
played a very influential role in his musical career.
Slimbo was a keyboardist at church and played for bands before he switched into music production full-time. The church synthesizer had a ‘copy to diskette’ function, and allowed sequencing of up to five tracks. So, he would take it to a recording studio and program it with a computer software with the help of the studio engineer, and then record his songs to it.

Slimbo managed to build a clientele of rappers from school who wanted to jump on his beats when they heard his stuff along the line. He started a business of recording and selling beats to his mates while he was in high school. As time went on, His passion for production grew deeper and he felt the need to program beats himself. He started out by collecting musical softwares, bought a Pentium 1 computer from a friend and started producing for people from home, while learning and perfecting how to manipulate sounds with softwares as well as programming and mixing in the process. Before He realized, He was making a buzz in his neighborhood and getting local radio interviews until he had his first breakthrough.

MUSIC CAREER

Slimbo has produced for the the likes of VVIP , EL , J Town , Stay Jay , Pappy Kojo , Joey B , Teephlow , Chymny Crane ,Gemini , Quabena Mafia  and is known for hit songs such as:

  • Pappy Kojo ft Joey B – Realer No (Picked up an Award for Hip Hop Song of the Year 2015)
  • Joey B ft Pappy Kojo – Wave
  • VVIP – Book of Hiplife

(Wave and Book Of Hiplife were nominated during the VGMA 2015 ) .

His breakthrough came in 2011 when he caught people’s attention with a smash record he produced for Quabena Maphia titled “Meko Yankee” and even intrigued more Ghanaians when he started working with Gemini and made hit records like “jamming”, as well as performing and making an appearance in his “Sakomono” track and video in 2013/2014 respectively.

INSPIRATION

As someone who grew up in Ghana – West Africa, and a fan of hip-hop music, aiming at both the local and international markets, Slimbo’s music taste is definitely influenced by great icons such as , Osibisa, Zapp Mallet, Don Jazzy, Dr. Dre, The Runners, David Guetta, Quincy Jones, Appietus, The Hammer and more.

That said, his productions are an uplifting combination of R&B, Hip-Hop, African Rhythms, Funk, Pop, Reggae, Soul, Jazz , etc. His curiosity for various music styles and mixing them up results in his innovative music sounds.
His versatility is proven by the range of music styles he produces.

As an inherent part of Slimbo, his music style knows no boundaries. And that makes his music unpredictable, but definitely recognizable. Having achieved such success with records he has produced till this point , Slimbo is no doubt one of Ghana’s most cherished and promising star producers. Slimbo is ready and has his sights set on taking his music to the next level and worldwide.

” I’ve been on the “d low” for a while taking care of what’s necessary to step up I musical career. Everything has finally come together now. Started I own label and all I can say is… You are now about to feel Slimbo in full effect! ” – Slimbo

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 23:06:21 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/nel-magnum/ NeL Magnum https://www.beatznation.com/profile/nel-magnum/ He’s James Bond with headphones and a bald scalp. He keeps surprising and pulling amazing stunts with sounds that a lot couldn’t conceive.  Some think he cheats, others just think he’s a big bluff. But the few who know him well such as his ghostly friend know very well that he reigns to rise, and not to ruin.

 

He’s …

NeL Magnum, aka Ebo Quansah. A Fante born Gemini who believes very well that one day he’ll unite the world with just one music. His eccentric and funny demeanor brings a lot of friends to this humble man. He works as a producer at Villain Sounds, formerly he was at Mixdown Studios.

Genres: Rock, Hip hop, Soul, R&B, Blues, jingles

NeL Magnum’s styles of music hasn’t been defined yet because he keeps creating and wanting to create more. Yet he’s known to produce ground shaking Movie Soundtracks, Rock, Hiphop, Soul, R&B, Blues and jingles. Also listen out for the “roger that” radio call in produced music and you’ll know it’s him. You’ll love it.

NeL didn’t really want to do music, because at a very early age he wasn’t interested in his piano class. He dodged his music teachers. It wasn’t till seven years ago that he began to do incredible magic with FL Studio and a bit of imagination and creativity, which made him become so interested in music. NeL Magnum’s ultimate aim with his music life, is to produce music that the world will embrace.

Some of the few people NeL Magnum has produced include Lvin Red, C-Real, J.Town, EL, Jon Germaine, Lyanna, Alexia and Miracle Blessings.

NeL Magnum hails all the great producers here now, and before, but on a quick pick, he’ll choose Pharrell, Timbaland and Hans Zimmer as his musical inspirations. He absolutely agrees that these musicians are incredibly talented and they’ve been a great contribution to the world’s music.

NeL Magnum loves family, friends, travelling, reading, writing, social media and videogames. Movies are also his thing, but most often he’d prefer a drive around the city to meet new people in trotro rides. NeL Magnum also loves art, music, philosophy, mathematics, architecture, biology, physics, chemistry, alchemy, medicine, technology, space, sex, fantasy, sci-fi, education, and food. He strongly believes that someday his name will be in the writtens of history.

NeL Magnum’s little advice to up and coming producers is to upgrade your game, dream to do more and read The Richest Man In Babylon. That’s all I’ll say. Oh and also pray to God. God first!

Genres:  Afro , Gospel, Hip Hop, House, RnB

Toxiqbeatz started making beats back in 2009 with influences from Drumma Boi, Polow da don, The Runners, No ID, Jahlil beats, Cardiak, All Star, Timbaland, Killbeatz and Richie of Lynx entertainment. He maintains the notion that music is diverse and so producers should try as much as possible not to restrict themselves to only one type of genre. Be my guest to witness this for yourself as you listen to his instrumentals.

I have loved music all my life. I used to play the alto horn, trumpet and tenor drums back in primary school for my school orchestra but beatmaking really hit me in 2009 upon hearing the beat Richie produced for Asem’s “gimmie blow”.

ToxiqBeatz

 

Toxiqbeatz has worked with a couple of artistes such Guru, Gasmilla, Teephlow, ModuloTheGaBwoy, Tribal Magz from the UK, MutomboDaPoet, Vibesquad UK, Knero from US, Miss Bess from the Netherlands, Kinpee, Barima pages, OBJ, etc.

”  My very first beatmaking software was ImageLine’s fruity loops 8 which I got from a colleague working at 2131. I tried my hands on it and I tell you, it was hell. All I could see was a coloured interface that looked like a video game with knobs and patterns. Is this pinball or what? It was a try and error affair between my baby(fruity loops) n I till I got hold of it after some months.

The road has not been easy. Over the years, With persistent hardwork, determination and tips from fellow producers I interacted with such as BoatzMadeIt from UK, Gafacci, SnowBeatz, KwameBeatz, PhingersGH (just to mention a few), I succeeded.

I think music is dynamic these days and you need to stick to your own styles and not follow what trends. The instrumental of a a hit song serves as a nidus on which vocals are laid upon. This is more emphasized when you see two individuals listening to a song: A beatmaker and a music lover. The former sits down, keeps quiet, holds the chin and savours every bit of it from start to end whilst the latter jumps around shouting ‘e dey be oo’ just after 5 seconds of listening it. All I can say to the upcoming beatmakers is that failure is not final. It’s the courage to continue that counts. Keep your chin up.”

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 16:41:34 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/hammer/ Hammer https://www.beatznation.com/profile/hammer/

Hammer of The Last Two, born Edward Nana Poku Osei is a record producer in the Ghanaian music industry. He is the founder and CEO of The Last Two Music Group and is also known for grooming some of the best artists Ghanaian Hip Hop or Hiplife has ever produced such as Obrafour, Tinny, Kwaw Kese, Sarkodie, Ayigbe Edem, etc. as a producer, he is credited as one of the pioneers and key figures in the popularization of Hiplife or Hip Hop made in Ghana.

The Last Two

Hammer began his career in music accidentally when a friend of his (Yaw Opare Anoff, aka Way Deep), a gifted keyboardist at the time encouraged him to take up the career because he realized Hammer had the ability to dissect and analyze music in the most unusual ways as a professional does. He also had the habit of finding faults with world class professional music which he thought could be better. This friend and Hammer then formed a production unit called The Last Two, meaning the only two left to put Ghana on the world map musically. Together they produced an album for a young artist called Obrafour which became the highest selling Hiplife album in Ghana. This album was called “pae mu ka.” Way Deep however left to the United States while Hammer remained as ‘one of the two’ left alone with the task of fulfilling the dream of two. Hammer however decided to maintain the name The Last Two as a tribute to his friendship with Way Deep.

Liberating the Tribes in Hip Hop

After Obrafour’s album, Hammer took up a new dream to spread Hiplife or Hip Hop in Ghana through all dialects instead of the stereotypical “Akan” language which was and is the most popular language in the country. After Obrafour (who rapped in the Twi dialect, typical of the Ashanti people), he challenged himself by risking the production of albums in other unpopular dialects, musically and made history again with the recording of Tinny, who raps in the “Ga” language, typical of the people of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. He went down in history as the best selling “Ga” act to date. He then challenged himself again with Kwaw Kese ending up as the biggest “fante” act to date. The “fante” language is typical of the indigenes of the Central Region and parts of the Western Region of Ghana. The story followed with Ayigbe Edem adding to Hammer’s credit as the biggest “Ewe” rapper to date. The “ewe” language is the mother tongue of the Volta Region of Ghana and neighboring Togo and Benin.

Compilation Albums

Hammer also releases occasional compilation albums which give the numerous artists who flock to his camp, a chance to be on wax without releasing an album. The compilation albums include the Execution Diary(2003), which was in partnership with Obrafour, Sounds of Our Time (2004), The Crusade of the Lost Files (2006) and the ongoing Evolution Recruits. A known perfectionist and a very passionate musician, Hammer’s methods of grooming his artists have come into question and controversy but the results of the unearthing of iconic stars seems to shut negative observers up. Hammer also does occasional scoring of movies, including the American movie “Bloody Street”. 

Growing Up

The third child of Jones A. Osei and Marian Osei, Hammer was born Edward Nana Poku Osei on March 27, 1976. His father was a banker and his mother was in the fishing industry. They both had six children consisting of three boys and three girls, in order, Albert Osei, Angela Osei, Edward Osei, Elizane Osei, Karen Osei and Jones Osei jnr. He is also a descendant of the late Otumfour Opoku Ware II, one time King of the Asanti Region. The family lived in North Kaneshie and later moved to East Legon, a wealthy neighborhood in the capital in the late eighties. Hammer attended Yellow Duckling nursery school, St Theresa’s School, Achimota Primary School and finally the Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School, Legon. However his passion for music became a distraction from active academics and so he could not further his education to the university level. Occasionally in his adolescent, the family lived in the United Kingdom and he also lived in the United States of America during his late teens. Although his father was heartbroken as Hammer’s grades fell, the family realized he was a born musician and eventually supported him. Hammer was known to drum on any surface available to him anywhere he found himself and was also known to patrol his neighborhood with a boom box sound system while playing loud music with friends.

Inspiration

Growing up on his father’s musical collection (such as Bonny M, the Bee Gees, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Pavarotti, Bonnie Tyler and several television and movie theme instrumentals such as James Bond, Dynasty, Neighbours, Dallas, etc.), Hammer digested works from these great icons as early as age seven and this gave him an unusual perspective over his peers, equipping him with skills that would eventually shape up his musical career. After the Hip Hop revolution, Hammer then became a fan of Special Ed, A Tribe called Quest, EPMD, De La Soul, Craig Mack, Guru, Rakim, Das Efx, Jay-Z, Dr. Dre, etc. But his real inspiration came from Osibisa, Quincy Jones and Bob Marley. Hammer is known to be a very reserved person and avoids nightclubs, parties and other social gatherings. The name “Hammer” initially came from a mock performance of MC Hammer’s “Here comes the Hammer” back in school as a fresher but now the Hammer name is related to the raging heavy drums associated with his music production. Hammer lives a simple life far from the celebrated person he is. Fans have credited him for being very down-to-earth.

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:46:24 +0000 https://www.beatznation.com/profile/jayso/ Jayso https://www.beatznation.com/profile/jayso/ Paul Nuamah Donkor , better known by his stage name Jayso, is a Ghanaian record producer, rapper, singer , songwriter  and sound engineer. He is the CEO and founder of Skillions Records.

The growing hip-hop movement in Ghana became a force the day rapper and producer Jayso decided to chart the course.

He was weaned off the music of classic hip-hop and jazz acts like Das Efx, Tribe Called Quest, Nat King Cole and Frank Sinatra. It was just a matter of time before he developed a fondness for what he heard and decided to follow that same path.

After years of honing his skill at home, Jayso decided to take it a step further by starting a group which has come to be known the Skillions. A contraction for skills in a million, the name is a depiction of the group’s depth in talent. He kicked of with his partner in rhyme Terry Thomas Tetteyfio a.k.a T- Kube when they were both students at the Presbyterian Boys Secondary School, Legon, in 1999.

Along the way he took a detour and became a member of another group known as The Haatsville Project. Comprised of JPE now ‘Kobi Onyame’, Mr. Scratch and The Canz. The group offered him a professional outlook to music and the desire to make beats. The group released their first production in 2002 titled the Haatsville Project with entire production handled by JPE and Jayso.

The ‘Producer Extraordinaire’ decided to use his improved knowledge to resurrect the Skillions while enlisting EL, J-town, NKP and Midknight along the way. Jayso’s bedroom became a make-shift studio where they made their first banger titled the Skillions Demotapes. The mixtape, the first of its kind in GH, created some major buzz which spread as far as Nigeria. The group successfully started a new phrase for the Ghanaian hiphop industry. GHRAP as it was known has now become a phrase that is still echoing and making people wonder where it originated. Jayso defines GHRAP as Hiphop music made in Ghana. An alias for what the Skillions created in the booth. The question then is raised; What is the difference between Hiplife and GHRAP? Jayso defines Hiplife as a genre whereas GHRAP is not. GHRAP is only a nickname for the kind of music the Skillions were making. Hiphop beats with rap/singing in english or pidgin. Basically, they simply wanted to be identifiedas Ghanaian Hiphop artists. Besides, Jayso never thought the phrase coined in his bedroom will become this controversial.
