Hi, Before reading through my biography, I will like to let you know my reasons of doing music. My gold is to put a smile on sad faces, to make Human enjoy the existence of Mankind converting the World a Happy place for every Human being to live, help others feel the good side of life instead of dying everyday and night and 'Yes We Can' coz we only gat: One World, One People, One Love and One Power. Welcome to ma world.. Ama solo Artist born and raised in Limbe, Cameroon. Sent in year 1979. Started my first class in 1984 and completed primary school in year 1992. I then break through the secondary school after 5 years then used 2 years to cross the bridge leading into the university. So am not only an Artist but a literate Artist whose text affects the Rest. Music has always been ma world since childhood. When I was a kid, I use to be awarded as best dancer in parties. The club is like ma second home. Started going clubbing at the age of 13 and was really hard between ma mum and I coz she was afraid I gonna loose my education. But my love for music could not let me listen to her. I got in the world of music the very first time I was able to understand Rhythms. As a baby, I could stand and dance when ever I listen to music. I then became an afro-beat dancer at the age of 14. By then, I was in a group called Dakwas taking part in inter provincial competitions winning trophies as best group. After 5 years of exposures and free-style presentations, I came to realise to be Dancer wasn't ma world but a Raphian Rapper, writer and composer. Have been in ma new world of music since the year 2000 and won 3 trophies as de best new style Rapper. I write ma songs and make ma beats. So, ama all round artist. No stress. U're welcome. Now, when step in the club, everybody wanna hear my voice. The mic. Has always been ma club girl. In fact I rock the mic., making sure everybody feel da club. Have been an Animator since the year 2000 in an all-round disco. And was powered by the D.Js to produce ma first album coz they always love it hearing me dropping down ma voice. I then met one Producer who did produced my first Demos. I worked with him for 3 years and later on decided to do ma sheet all alone coz he wanted me to Rap like an American of which he and I knew that I am not an American. All that was due to complexity and lack of self confidence myself. The very first official song I produced was 'Brainwork' and made a hit in the club due to it's groove and text.So I took Personal Actions by writing and Producing my songs. It was really hard for me to define ma kind of music. Some says Ragga/Reggae, others says hip-hop, dance hall, Afro-raps/beat and more. Some can't even define it. And that was what I was looking for. I mean a kind of music no one can describe, that sounds strange in the hears of people and when heard, always asked " Who is this?". Some even believe I'm a Jamaican. In fact none even thought of me being an African. But for real, I'm a Cameroonian and will always accept and respect my origin, not only in words but in music. I will never try to rap like the Americans coz I'm not an American. I know most up coming rappers always try to follow the American style no matter where they come from. But I believe real Artist always represents their origin like Akon, Shakira, Shaggy and many others. So I term ma kind of music "Raphian Flavour". Raphian comes from Raphael which is my first name and Raphian is the Flavour coming out from Raphael. I decided to go this way coz after contacting many producers, I came to realise they're all trying to imitate the Americans and that's what I don't want. Ma first album to be released is entitled 'Brainwork'. My husky heavy voice and ma rhythms is loved by the people. When they hear ma music, they always say " Oh what a Voice" and they feel something new and great. Get ya cop.. feel da Flavour I love you all..Onelove Stay blessed.
