Uprising HipLife Star; Obofour Inks A Record Deal In Milan.
Loud Sound Ghana can confirm that, uprising HipLife star; Obofour who is a Ghanaian based in Italy has finally signed a record deal with a Milan based record label called “Not Bad Music” and he is the second major artiste to be signed to the label after CHIKI, who is also a Milan based artiste. The record label is owned by an ex-Inter Milan footballer who goes by the name “JO” and also the owner of “Not Bad” shop in Milan.
This is a good news for Obofour and also a remarkable endorsement for Hiplife music; and this is because most upcoming artistes dont usually get these kind of juicy deals especially when they do pure HipLife. If a record label located in Milan should sign a HipLife artiste, this should tell us HipLife is being regarded as a solid and an original genre which the world is willing to listen to.
Speaking to Obofour, he also revealed that his first single with the label titled “Professor” is under construction and will soon be released online. The single was produced by Ghanaian beat maker; Genius Selections. Obofour told us he believes the upcoming single is going to be acceptable and a hit too because lyrically, it speaks a lot… Talking about lyrics, I know this young rapper got that quality and you can see that in his previously released single “Award Tour” which was off his “Everything Is Golden” mixtape.
When we ask what he thinks about the new record deal, he said “Finally I’m very happy that I’m signed into a label …it’s not easy cos since we don’t have an industry with record labels as before, people don’t want to help the upcoming ones Cos they are better than them… It’s God and I give thanks” Its about time hiplife takes a new shape and spread the expensive genre to the rest of the world.
