Biography of Ambassadoz


Equipped with an AKG-3000 microphone, a second hand laptop loaded with a plethora of recording software and a vision; AKAN (born Franklyn Kwesi Effah) and M.O.A (born Kwame Andah) started recording tracks for their debut album "TRAVELWISE".

A trip to a region deep within themselves in order to dish out what has been deemed as 'one of the most intercultural hip hop albums of 2005'.

The fact that they blended smoothly into the Philly scenes in 1999 comes as no surprise to many as AKAN and M.O.A relay both sides of the story through their rhymes. Though on opposite sides of the voice range they manage to compliment each other and deliver a flow so unique.

Produced on barely any budget at all but the aforementioned equipment, featuring no big name stars and no wack gimmicks, this album will, nevertheless, reach out and grab you by the ear. All the tracks on the CD where recorded in a relaxed home environment at the residence of the two emcees. The result is similar to "The Blair Witch Project"...of African Hip Hop.

Some called us 'third-world citizens', while others said we were 'backwards'.. some even asked if we still lived on trees in Africa. Truth is, with more than 7 years experience of ripping shows, M.O.A (Minista Of Agrikulcha) & AKAN operated solely on the underground eventually surfacing in the late 90s as recording artists who knew exactly what their audience wanted..and what they wanted was something new.

Their creation is hip-hop music that can range from hard-core to afro-funk, becoming hard to lock into a specific genre or category. This distinctive hybrid of sound has the ability to dazzle spectators with their 'switching spit' lingo (rhyming in different languages and accents) while commanding the credibility from the hip-hop elite.

They bridge the gap between different forms of hip-hop vernacular on stage spittin' in English, French, Twi, and Pidgin to name a few.

Akan and M.O.A are also featured in the Rock A Mole Productions documentary 'The Ultimate Song', a documentary about music's role in the struggle to end poverty. It brings together the leaders of the poor in America with musicians such as Wyclef Jean, Bruce Springsteen, Brother Bank, Rage Against the Machine, Jackson Browne, Krown Ju-Elz, Steve Earle, Ice T and Kindred.

Their unique influences both musical and spiritual make the Ambassadoz a rare and captivating Ghanaian hip-hop duo based in Philly, PA. Their fans are as diverse as the crew itself: blacks, whites, Asiatics, hippies, freestylers, rockers, and rastas can all be seen nodding their heads at an Ambassadoz show.
