Born to a Frafra father and an Akim mother, he grew up in the rainforest of southern Ghana before moving up to the land of the Frafra in the savannah of northern Ghana as a young boy. Growing up in Namoo, his father’s village of origin, he was deeply impressed by the glorious moments he experienced during the services at the village’s church. All that singing and drumming ensured he was the first at church every Sunday, long before the service even started.
His only wish at the time was to be old enough to join the church choir. When he turned thirteen his wish came true and he instantly had his first studio experience, as the choir recorded a series of cassettes on which he performed.
After he had finished school he focused on his own career as a Frafra-Gospel artist. In 2007 he released his first album, but it took another five years for him to have his break through as a leading singer. Since the release of his third album in 2012, which contained the original version of „Mam Yinne Wa“, he was booked for almost all of the festivals and celebrations in the region and was also invited to almost all of the countless Frafra communities which exist all over Ghana.
