B4bonah lost both his parents at a tender age where his auntie Alice took care of him from then. B4bonah attended Saint Ann’s Int., Creator Schools, and Chemu Senior High. As a child, B4bonah was active and always full of life. He was very creative and involved in many school programs including cultural dancing, football, Taekwondo, and painting. In school, he was known as a class clown and was loved by many. B4bonah’s career with music began with dancing in Junior and Senior high. He became very well known for his dancing all around Tema. Dancing was the gateway that brought him to music.

B4bonah’s musical influence grew while listening to UK artiste’s like Wretch 32 and others. In 2011, he released ‘Let’s Party’ which became a hit throughout Tema.

  • INFLUENCES: Wretch 32, Donae’o, Sway, Lethal Bizzle, Amakye Dede, Kojo Antwi, Obrafour, Lord Kenya
  • MUSICAL STYLE: He’s known for his British sound and touch of humour and wit in his lyrics. He writes a lot from personal experiences of growing up in Tema. When it comes to writing, B4bonah usually hears a beat a few times and the lyrics come to him. He rarely writes in advance. B4bonah tries to make his deliveries so simple that all can understand and so that it allows them to relate to the message in their own way.

 

PUBLIC IMAGE: B4bonah is simply known as a free spirit in all regards.

 

CONTROVERSIES: There have been several times where fans and others have taken to Twitter to condemn B4bonah on matters like the way he dresses and styles himself. One prominent incident took place when B4bonah responded to a young artist via Twitter saying “my mind never dey”. Bloggers took that interaction and tried to make it look as if B4bonah thought too highly of himself when he was trying to let the artist realize he can do better on his own.

 

OTHER BUSINESSES AND VENTURES: Just as his label is appropriately named “Music Is My Life”, music is the centre of B4bonah’s life and his main focus at this current time.
