Chances are you've heard Signal's voice once or twice before over cover of songs.
It's time for the Ghanaian hip hop fans to start paying attention to Signal. His best friend called Selorm greatly inspired him to rap.
His favourite rappers are Nas, Jay Z and the local ones are Obrafour, M.anifest, J-Town and Sarkodie.
He's been applauded for his ambitious cover of "Otis" as well as 2 Face's 'Nobody', his freestyle track set to Wiz Khalifa 'Black & Yellow."
We sat down with Signal to discuss everything from rapping style to where he came up with the name.
His showbiz name was coined by his Social studies tutor in High School at the rate at which he disturbed during lecture periods.
Signal started making music like any other musicians -- in his bedroom on his laptop. But Signal has been able to turn his little hobby into a reality. “I have being doing music since infancy. I also grew up practicing two spheres of hiphop and break dancing and emcee (rapping)”, he said.
Signal also opened up about his feelings on the current state of hip-hop, and he had some pretty poignant words of wisdom, especially coming from a young boy: "Hiphop in Ghana is still flourishing but we have to accelerate it. My “Accolade” mix tape is only to thank or praise anyone who motivated me till today especially GOD”, he said.
If Signal's 'Nobody', 'Bday' and 'Rough Days' songs isn't enough, check out more interviews to learn more about on Ghana Music.com.
To sign off, Signal believes mix tapes normally tells the world how good you are and been able to compose a song on an already done track.
Now it's dude's turn to take over on his own, and we have no problem sitting back and watching him dominate with his own mix tape.
