“As a group, our favorite was Fugees, but my personal favorite was the Ghanaian rapper Obrafour. There was something about his music that blew my mind–the unparalleled depth and dexterity with which he owned the Twi Language in his rap. Obrafour’s music was so rich that the older generation who were not accustomed to hiplife and rap music got drafted into the genre because of his irresistible appeal. I did not have his photos in my room, but, but he was permanently engraved in my heart“, she wrote, in chapter two of her memoir.
