The Pae Mu Ka story, while it is owned by all of hiplife, particularly belongs to the Accra suburb of Taifa particularly. Reason? It is where the venerable rapper’s career started.
Come October 19, Obrafour, supported by a legion of contemporary Ghanaian stars, returns to the fabled neighbourhood with a mammoth concert dubbed the Back to Taifa Concert.
Expected to witnessed abundant patronage, the free concert which comes off at the Taifa Station gives Obrafour fans a foretaste of the main twentieth-anniversary concert slated for November at the Accra International Conference Centre.
The Back to Taifa Concert will see Obrafour treat patrons to classics from 1999 till date. Notable guest performers include Tinny, Keche, Guru, A.I Pappy Kojo, Tic, Kwaw Kesse, Joey B, Ras Kuuku, Edem and a host of others.
Since the launch of his career in 1999, the rapper known to his mother as Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere Darko has served as ready reference for the sound of hiplife and wholesome lyricism. Obrafour is set to announce his new album Obrafoforo this year. The CD follows other masterpieces as Pae Mu Ka, Ntetee Pa, Asem Sebe, Tofa (Time out for Adhession), Execution Diary, Asem Beba Dabi, and Heavy.
