Biography of Okomfoo Kwaadee


Jerry Anaabaa a.k.a. Okomfoo hails from Navrongo in the Upper East Region of Ghana. He attended Martyrs of Uganda Preparatory School in Kumasi after which he proceeded to Navrongo Senior Secondary School.

Okomfoo has since birth dreamt of becoming a musician. Lo and behold his dreams have come to reality by the kind courtesy of “Vybetown Records” a subsidiary of “Vybetown Entertainment Consult”, an entertainment consultancy based in Osei Krom / Kumasi.

The debut album dubbed “Kwaadee” which is also the title track brings out the ingenuity of Okomfoo. With his powerful and traditional lyrics that is very typical of the true Ghanaian, he is surely poised to climb high the ladder of Kasahare and take it to a completely different level. In the first of its kind, Okomfoo goes back to the grassroots narrating stories (just like in anansesem) while rhyming in a way that everyone who listens embraces.

This new style (which he prefers not to be embraces in the Hip life family) would hold everyone – both old and young – spellbound while impacting the very useful experience and advice on the listeners.

In fact Okomfoo has paved the way forward to many new and coming artiste and his coming in his own style makes him a force to reckon with when it comes to good traditional lyrics. It is believed that no one comes near his style and he advocates for potential musicians going their own style.

The debut album has some 8 very powerful and strikingly different songs. With songs like “Kwaadee” (Aboro ne Bayie) and “Ataa Adwoa” you will straight away point where Okomfoo comes from, and he is surely one of the most versatile Hip life artiste in the music arena presently. Songs like “Meba Monkyen” would place him among the elite musicians doing contemporary Hip life whilst “Abrantee” recounting some real life experience is slow and refreshing. Coming from the Upper East, Okomfoo has one track (Pito) in Frafra one of the languages in that part of Ghana and all these goes out to point to the very versatile nature of the musician.


Okomfoo also does very good ragga in Ghanaian languages and one song on the album “Asete” would place him as among the first if not the first doing this in Twi. “Asete” on the Okomfoo Album will set Rastafarians jumping around and singing praises to Jah Almighty.
