Biography of Ex Doe


Ex Doe aka Richard Kwasi Siaw Afrofi was one of the pioneer hiplife musicians. He was first a part of a group called the Traditional rulers being going solo.

He collaborated with Chicago to release "Daavi mede kuku" (Sister, can I please have some koko - porridge), the most popular Ewe hiplife song to date in 1996.

Even though he is an Akan, he has known more for his Ewe lyrics due to the song's popularity. He and Chicago got into some misunderstanding over who deserved the credit for that hit. (Chicago actually wrote all the verses according to some sources).

Maba was a diss to Reggie Rockstone (hiplife's major pioneer) and Chicago. Rumour has it that Nana King of Ashanti International who was producing Ex-doe encouraged him to do so to create controversal sales.

It is also believed that Akyeame (from Kumasi) wrote the Twi verses on 'Maba' dissing Rockstone (an Accra resident who has called him president of Kumasi - Oseikrom president). Rockstone has not publicly responded to the diss but Chicago did on his Wobeko (You would go) track.

Ex-Doe tried to incorporate Chinese into his next album (Twi Chinese) which did not yield the success he expected, working with the Ashanti International label.

He disappeared from the hiplife scene for a long time and then resurfaced featuring on Tic Tac's hit, 'Beware of dogs'. He is now a TV-presenter on a TV market and entertainment show called Hello Ghana.

Some of his songs include Yebre, Daavi mede kuku, Gogo wo ho, Comfort, Good one there, etc.
