The celebrated musician who was a guest on #FridayOldSkuul on ‘Anɔpa Bɔfoɔ’ on Angel 102.9 FM on Friday, July 10, 2020, said he commenced rap music in the country.

“I am also the originator of rap music in the country, I rapped in the 1967 song which went viral…,” he told host Captain Smart.
He said the rap can be found in the Part 1 of the said video:
