He was born in Italy, raised in Ghana (Dansoman) and currently based in Italy! Obofour Raphael is currently putting together a mixtape he calls “Everything Is Golden”, and off the mixtape comes this exclusively certified dope music he calls “Award Tour”… What this young rapper does may be tagged as Hip-Hop by many, but I call this original Ghanaian Hip-Hop a.k.a. Hip-Life.
Obofour Raphael grew up listening to great artistes like Reggie Rockstone (Founder of Hip-Life), Cy Lover, Buk Bak, Obrafour, Lord Kenya, Biggie Smalls, Nas, Etc… The rapper represents Hip-Life to the fullest and pledged to introduce some change into the Ghanaian music industry, even though he thinks the stage we are now is not that bad. Speaking to Obofour Raphael, he also raised some concerns about unity among the artistes and also said that is the surest way to send a collective message out there as Ghanaian artistes just as what the Nigerian music industry has achieved.
