It is not everyday that a legend feels the need to impact on the lives of others. But legendary rapper Obrafour says as long as he has life, he will continue to bless up and coming Ghanaian artistes.

According to the ‘Rap Sofour’, God gave him the gifts of rap and good hooks not for his own good but for the good of others as well.

“We cannot be at the forefront every time. What we have to do is to hold the hands of the people below us and bring them up. I believe that God doesn’t mostly put you in a position for your own good; he puts you in a position for the good of others as well. While here with life, I would have to continue blessing the young up and coming ones,” Obrafour told NEWS-ONE.

The ‘Ako’ hit maker is one of the few Ghanaian musicians who have been able to put out some timeless and thought-provoking songs. In recent times, he has taken it upon himself to work with young talents like M.anifest, Teephlow and Area Boi among others.

Kwabena Okyere Darko, as he is known in real life, disclosed that though he has worked with various talents around the country, he believes rapper Teephlow is the “ish”. Obrafour and Teephlow happen to be under the management of the Last Two Music Group.

“What it is, God gives. There are so many talents; I mean talents abound in
Ghana. You have Teephlow, Kofi Kinata and the rest of the guys out there but Teephlow for me is the ish. I did a joint with him. I’m not coming to say anything to the public but he is right in your ears,” Obrafour stated.

He noted that he would, however, want to bless Kofi Kinata with regard to working together on a joint or two.

“For me, there is one more person I need to bless and that is Kofi Kinata. That boy is something else,” Obrafour added.

He later commended beat producer Hammer of the Last Two for scouting for such great talents over the years.

“Last two, what they do is what they are doing best. Hammer has eyes for talent and he has ears for talent; and that is basically what he is doing,” the ‘Heavy’ singer said.
