Legendary hiplife musician, Edward Nana Poku Osei, widely known as Obrafour has revealed that hiplife isn’t dead as people think, and it’s only the style and sound that has changed.
Addressing patrons at the launch of the 20th anniversary of his first album, ‘Pae Mu Ka’, he stated that the genre has only undergone transformations.
“We are not dead, we are here and some of you are still here supporting. I believe we can’t say much because it is not sounding like it used to be. Now it has changed, even the content but this is how far we have come and we can’t be too hard on ourselves, we just have to thank God,” he answered when KOD quizzed him on stage if hiplife is dead.
Obrafour’s 20th anniversary of his ‘Pae Mu Ka’ album brought people from all scores of lives to the Tang Palace Hotel in Accra and had a number of personalities passing through to support. Among them were Sarkodie, M.anifest, Pappy Kojo, D-Black, Yvonne Nelson, Kweku Elliot, Clover, National Democratic Congress’ (NDC’s) Okudzeto Ablakwa and legal practitioner Herbert Krapa were also present and a host of others.
The main event is scheduled to take place on November 9, 2019.
