Hip Life music in Ghana has really witnessed emphatically serious lyrical genius over the last decade but one artiste who is lyrically gifted and has championed the cause of this particular style of music in so many ways is the rhyming mater of all times is Joe Frazier.
Christened Andrews Agyin, he chose the name Joe Frazier because he was highly tempered way back in school hence getting the name from his friends. “Yeah anybody who knows the American boxer Joe Frazier must know he strikes like a thunder and he was the first man to knock Mohammed Ali down so basically I am the Joe Frazier of music. (Laughs…)”, he said.
With nine years of experience on the hip life scene, Joe had churned out four sold albums which, “Yaa Mame”, shishi and the current one “Right now.” “Hip life is my life and without it Joe Frazier would never had been who he is today. I respect hip life so much because I can feed my family and people respect me everywhere I go” he added.
In his views, Joe said his absence from stage performances is due to his recording studio and management. “I have my office in Hannover Germany and I’m looking forward to bringing on board some underground artistes. We have lots of talents in this country but getting a producer is our main challenge and my project will ease the situation a little bit” he elaborated.
According to the rhyming master of hip life music, His Excellency President Atta Mills and Nana Akufo Addo the former flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party called to wish him well in all his endeavors. “Yeah these two gurus have endorsed my music and I thank them for that. To my fans they should continue to pray for me and I will continue to give them more rhyming styles” Joe Frazier.
