It will be recalled that way back in the late 90’s to the early 2000s during the onset of the hiplife genre, Obrafour and Lord Kenya were perceived to be beefing each other.
The beef got really hot that many thought it would turn into a real-life battle.
However, 20 years after the release of his ‘Pae Mu Ka’ album, the Rap Sofo, known in real life as Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere Darko has stated how it all started.
During an interview on the Y entertainment Podium on YFM 97.9 hosted by the Citi Buzzer in Takoradi, Obrafour said his feud with Lord Kenya happened after the release of his first album.
He stated that on his ‘Yaa Nom’ song, there were lines like; “Rap Heavyweight champion, metua town”; “I was the first musician ever to say I was the Rap Heavy Weight Champion”.
But according to Lord Kenya, he was the Rap heavyweight champion, not me. He also mentioned the title in one of his songs and that’s how it all started.
“We however handled issues in a mature and open-minded way. We were very aware of the benefits hence we played along”.
“Whenever Lord Kenya drops his album, people rushed to buy just to see if he had thrown shots at me; it was same when I also dropped an album”, Obrafour added.
