Award-winning hip-life artiste turned Evangelist, Abraham Philip Akpor Kojo Kenya, popularly known as Lord Kenya has said that he unseated hiplife grandpapa, Reggie Rockstone as the best artiste during his music career.
“I dethroned Reggie Rockstone many years ago as the best musician to have won Artiste of the Year, Hiplife Song of the Year as well as the Hiplife Album of the Year.”
In an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM, the rap heavyweight Champion reiterated that he was the first artist to have ever won the best musician award.
Lord Kenya at the Ghana Music Awards in 2001 emerged the big winner taking four awards including the prestigious Song of the Year Award which every musician in Ghana cherishes.
The rap sensation became acquainted with music right from birth. However, Lord Kenya’s desire to become a professional really began to burn at the age of 17, just after he completed high school at Kumasi Anglican Secondary School, where he was called “Babylonian” because of his insatiable energy which later made him the school’s 400m and 110m hurdles champion.
At the onset, Kenya experienced some hindrances from his parents when he decided to take music as a career. His parents had wanted him to become a lawyer instead of a musician.
