Considered as one of the best when it comes to hiplife, Obrafour has consistently been on top of his game; from singing in a feature to rapping, he’s got no size.
His calm life has made many music enthusiasts love him the most but one thing that falls short of the renowned hiplife musician is his inability to groom talents.
Many have been of the view that Obrafour should start grooming talents because his rapping prowess is fast depreciating as once posited by Edem in an interview with Arnold of Vibes in 5.
Well, it seems rapper Edem isn’t the only person who has come to realise the hard truth as one up and coming rapper called Jew Nart has advised Obrafour to concentrate on grooming young talents rather than wasting money on personal recordings hoping to get hit song(s).
“Like by now, Obrafour would have a company mainly for grooming rap artists since he claims the King of kasahari. We are here suffering doing good songs but who to manage or link us to the media is our problem. He must develop the new artists instead of wasting resources on himself. Let him try to invest in the new ones”, he said.
According to, Jew Nart this message is not for Obrafour alone but to all the old artists who are trying to get hit songs again.
“This doesn’t go to only Obrafuor but to all those who have faded away but still don’t want to give up but investing wrongly in their dead career. They should invest in the young ones like Richie (Lynx Entertainment), D Black (Black Avenue Muzik), Sarkodie (SarkCess Music), etc.”.
Jewel also noted that TicTac should also venture into nurturing talents than releasing songs because it’s not penetrating.
More importantly, Obrafour must try and manage up and coming ones and see how he will make more money like Richie is making money from acts like Kuami Eugene, MzVee and KiDi.
