Rap veteran, Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere Darko, popularly known as Obrafour, has revealed that he wanted to become a lawyer and not a musician.

According to the 'Kasahari' legend, his passion as a kid was to practice law, conduct lawsuits or give legal advice to clients just like his grandfather did and not hitting the studio to create and produce songs.

One of Ghana's favourite rapper made this revelation when he spoke to Ohemaa Woyeje on Adom FM’s ‘Work and Happiness’ on Tuesday.


“I wanted to be like my grandfather, lawyer Okyere Darko because I respect lawyers…” he disclosed.

Having chalked a lot of success as a musician, the ‘Heavy’ hitmaker said, “I have changed my mind now. With all due respect, I respect the profession of being a lawyer but sometimes they might know the truth but they still have to say otherwise."

Obrafour was grateful to his maker for gifting him with the talent to pen down life-changing songs.

“But it is good God gave me the talent. It was not an old lady who taught me the proverbs I know. It is pure talent. I don’t think anyone can be Obrafour...I wanted to rap without being profane. I wanted to do music to inspire, educate and entertain…” he stressed.

Obrafour is currently promoting his latest song dubbed: “No Vote”.
