Throwback: Obrafour “Ogya” Ft Blitz & Tinny (Prod by Da Hammer)
The Hiplife time machine takes me back to this banger by Obrafour featuring Blitz (Now Blitz Da Ambassador) and Tinny!! This is called “Ogya” and produced by the most outstanding and unique producer from the beginning of Hiplife till now; Da Hammer of the Last 2 Music Group… Obviously, Obrafour brought a huge change into Hip-Life and modernized it in his own unique way… I remember those days, most artistes had to sample beats or actually use beats by other artistes out there to make their music.
They sometimes even have to refix the original choruses by fixing their own lyrics in the already exiting rhythm… (Those days we called it COPYRIGHT lol)… But since Pae Mu Ka, most artistes realized you can actually start something from the scratch and make it Unique. Thanks to Obrafour and Hammer, Hip-Life has undergone so many changes and evolutions, but now, it pretty much looks like the main goal is being deviated.
But dont get me wrong though, Reggie Rockstone started Hip-Life, and his goal was to modernize our rich HighLife music we already have and fuse in the HipHop part… (I THink) Listen to songs like “Keep Your Eyes On The Road” and some other classics by Reggie Rockstone and you will understand what I mean. Hip-Life got transformed into a whole new trend and I can say After Obrafour’s Pae Mu Ka album, more artistes began to spring out and surprisingly enough, most of the engineers started playing their beats the “Hammer Style” and all artistes wanted to have a recording session with the beat monster!!
Its such an interesting Journey, and this song had a role to play throughout the process… I bring you back “Ogya” featuring Blitz and Tinny!!! Download mp3 below and share!!
