The rise of a new Ghanaian rap legend, Obibini

Rap music I would continue to say is a little bit underrated in the country currently, the music genre has seen great rappers holding it down, from the likes Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour to the new generation rappers Sarkodie, Teephlow, Medikal the genre seems to becoming a public interest again.

David Kwaku Effum Boafo known by the stage name Obibini, is one of the rap artiste taking the Genre to the next level.

He has a unique style of blending English with the twi language and each line blows your mind. He grew up listening to rappers such as Reggie Rockstone, Obrafour, Outcast, and Busta Rhymes. Each of them influenced his style as he drew inspiration from them.

He started writing his very own music when he was a member of a music group back in Senior High School (Adisadel College); Ill Deadly Ministers (IDM) which helped him develop his song writing ability.

The rapper for a long time harnessed a large following, so it was very disappointing that he didn’t have any record label ready to sign him. That story however has changed as he is currently signed onto Zylofon Media.

Under new management nothing seems to be holding the rapper back, he released The Statement, a 2-minute-long rap music with hard core bars just to show what he is capable and tell others in the game to up their games because he has arrived.

His latest single Gogo Woho is enjoying massive media play which only tells me he is not just coming to add to the game but aiming to reign.
