Every now and then, a new force is born to introduce some freshness onto the music scene and Modulo The Ga Bwoy is one.
With his distinct fusion of Ga, English and pidgin lyrics, into diverse genres, Modulo’s style of music could best be described as hip-hop with a dash of hiplife and highlife, blended with a touch of UK grime and grooves, and a dose of pidgin.
Born Isaac Okpoti, Modulo is a Ghanaian rapper born in Murkudi, Nigeria. He is based in Ghana and currently a Business Information Systems student at the Zenith College University.
Isaac got the name Modulo because he was fond of doing his modulo arithmetic project work in the studio, thus the nickname Modulo caught on and that eventually developed into his showbiz/stage name.
At a tender age of 4, his family moved to Ghana and settled at La in Accra, where he attended the Labone Seventh Day Adventist School but began ditching school for the music studios at age 10.
His parents got to know of his music addiction when his report card got to them showing 20 out of 90 days of class attendance.
Though his dad did not like the idea of him being interested in music, he bought a conga drum for him as a reward for having good grades and this further motivated his passion for music.
He began freestyling, writing lyrics, and followed the music of many artistes popular at the time.
Isaac was inspired to do music by Buk Bak (GH), Twista (USA), Jadakis (USA), Sway (UK) and Wiley (UK).
Modulo currently has recorded over 6 new tracks including ‘Ga Bwoy’, ‘Turkey’, ‘Practice’, ‘Shut Down’ and ‘Bars for Sale’, produced by Smoque.
“I’m currently recording more tracks for my free 10-track mixtape which will be out this year.
I’m going to go on a nationwide high school tour to promote the mixtape before releasing an album.
I feel that music is a process and I want my music to grow on my fans before coming out with my album titled, ‘Ga Bwoi’,” Modulo noted.
