Self-styled ragga artiste, Emperor Amslin is at the forefront of an emergent wave of young ragga artistes who are bringing hope to ragga scene that ragga can also rule aside hiplife and gospel music.
Emperor Amslin has started his path to worldwide success and heads to take his music international as he transcends boundaries and captivates musical lovers from his, “Hotter Than Fire” album.Though he always delights in music, it always played second fiddle to football as he didn’t have any intentions of making a career out of music yet.
It was after he started receiving attention and rave reviews from colleagues when he performed at school’s entertainment programs. His colleagues crowned him a true representative of ragga music and bestowed the name, ‘Yoggie’ because he sounded more like him and did more.
This saw him dropping football and focusing on music. In view of this, he adopted some role models whom he studied and aspired to be like them. He drew inspiration from artistes like Buju Banton, CJ Lewis, Sizzla and Elephant man. But since Sizzla was his favorite, he concentrated on him and made him his role model by imitating his voice and style. After he teamed up with a friend called Michael to release an album dubbed “Odotuo” in 2002.
Amslin moved onto join TTN, after Michael travelled outside Ghana and things became hard for him. He was glad to have met, Raz King, CEO of Kings & Queens Entertainment who signed him to the label.
Songs to check out are ‘Amslin’, ‘Baby Come Back’, ‘She's Gone’ and ‘Make My Day’.
Amslin has also given his time to charity with lending his support to Raz Foundation to help raise funds and it’s also his passion to help single mothers get employment.
