Black Prophet

Black Prophet is an African Roots Rock Reggae singer/ songwriter from Accra Ghana who follows in the footsteps of the great African reggae artists…Alpha Blondy, Lucky Dube and Tiken Jah Fakoly. He writes as he sees and feels about things going on in the world around him.

Black Prophet’s reggae is different: it’s a mixture of African traditional percussion blended with elements of Jamaican Reggae and a hint of Rock. He has been influenced by the music of his time growing up in Ghana and some songs are sung in African dialects Twee and Ga.

He released his debut solo album ‘No Pain No Gain’ in February 1998 a mixture of Reggae and African Hip Hop. In 2003, the singer and songwriter made his first tour in Europe where he performed at various festivals in the Netherlands and Belgium.

The single “Good Feeling” was produced by the world-renowned producer Dean Fraser and recorded during Black Prophet’s first visit to Kingston, Jamaica in 2010.

Black Prophet has meanwhile set up a fan base reaching far outside his motherland Ghana. His songs get airplay all over the globe and as Black Prophet’s reputation grew across continental Europe, he has been constantly invited to play at various shows and festivals, such as the Oland Roots festival (Sweden), Rototom Sunsplash Festival (Spain), Reggae Geel Festival (Belgium) and the Rastaplas Festival (Netherlands).

He has been sharing stages with various international producers and artists such as Morgan Heritage, Alpha Blondy, the late Lucky Dube, Beenie Man, Busy Signal, Sizzla, Taurus Riley, Capleton, Steel Pulse, Israel Vibration, Fantah Mojah and Rita Marley.
