UPCLOSE WITH MOD DEE (@Mod_dee168)
There is no doubt LoudSoundGH is here to support the upcoming artists and to reveal them to the world. Its always hard as an upcoming artist and even harder when the artist does not have any helping hand or support.
Through our search to discover more underground artists, we found this young man who goes by the name Emmanuel Fritz Opare Boafo and known in the underground scene as ”MOD DEE”
Fritz was born in Adabraka, a suburb of Accra. He attended SARMATEX Junior high after his basic education and proceeded to the Accra Technical Training Center (A.T.T.C.), where he studied Auto Mobile Engineering and graduated successfully.
After graduating from ATTC, he decided to acquire some skills in TV and Radio presenting.
”I grew up in a family where every member of my family got a passion for music and entertainment in general.” he said… He did say his dad was an entertainment prefect in his high school days… His elder sister had the same position when she was in high school as well. To add to the list, his big brother is a DJ who always does his rehearsals at home. This made Mod Dee get more closer to Music and it all began to sink into him naturally. He had a variety of music to listen to; ranging from hiplife, pop, RnB, Hiphop others which he said would be a long list if he should attempt mentioning.
He enjoys all kinds of music but told us his favorite was Afrobeats. ”The genre of music I do is AfroBeat fused with HipHop beat” He added… I could not get an example of what the AfroBeats + Hiphop would sound like; but Im very sure that is gonna be some real bad mix!
” I started listening to music from an early stage and started rapping along when the music in being played…” he said… Fritz’s first appearance on stage was in high school when he learned a favorite song and sang along whiles the original music is played in the background… Performing on stage became something he grew interest in… His elder brother encouraged him more and inspired him to improve and get more involved into music. A lot of compliments came from friends and mates and they also encouraged him to write his own songs… He then took his pen and paper and got to work…
He met a couple of friends and they formed a group back in school named GH BLACCZZS. That is when they felt ready for the studio and visited the recording studio for the first time. They recorded their first single titled (SPOIL DHERE) ”We got positive results and lots of people loved the track”. He said with a glow in his face.
When we asked him which artist inspires him, he said with no delay he is totally inspired by Wanlov the Kubolor (FOKN Bois) and he is loving his ”Kokonsah” track. He did say he also inspired by Kendrick Lamar’s ”Black Boy Fly” and its a song he could put on replay and never get tired listening to.
” I am well known for the Spoil Dhere track and my refix I did on BOB’s ”Dont Make Me Fall” Cover which is titled ”Prayers” He said… He also said he featured some underground rappers like Bozizie who is also a very good producer, Big Worm (CEO of Engine Records), Small and Obibini who he decribed as a Serious rapper. For now Fritz does not have any video to add to his credit but will sure get a video when the time is right… ”But I was featured in Swag Society’s ”Too Hot” video featuring Kwaku T” He concluded
He is currently with Engine Records and working hard to drop his freshest tune titled ”Dey For Corner”… He seems to be very confident about this new tune and told us we will love it! I guess we should all watch out for that tune. Hopefully, it will be published on this platform for free downloads… He then ended by saying ”I see my self performing on a bigger platform and my music played all over the world… ” he also said he has achieved some of his goals; and that is being able to do music and being recognized as a good artist.
”I salute all my fans and I want them to know they are the reason I never stop what Im doing.” He ended…
Be on the look out for Mod Dee… He is bring you more fire and he needs your support and love.
