BLACK PROPHET is an African Reggae singer/songwriter from Accra Ghana.

This young man is not the typical reggae artist…he writes as he sees…as he feels of what is happening in the world, of how it affects him and how the world affects the people around him.  Growing up on the streets of Accra in Ghana, Prophet endured a poverty-stricken childhood.  Music, he concluded, was the only way to escape the tough life on the streets.

Black Prophet music is different …a mixture of African Traditional percussion, with the elements of Jamaican reggae and a hint of rock.  Some of Black Prophet songs are sung in one of the African dialects Twee and Ga…or a mix with English.

Black Prophet has played in over 30 countries appearing in festivals, nightclubs in countries as diverse as Sweden, Germany, Jamaica and the UK. He released his debut solo album “No Pain No Gain” in February 1998, a combination of reggae and African Hip Hop tracks.  In 2003, the singer and songwriter first toured in Europe where he performed at various festivals in the Netherlands and Belgium.   In 2006 he released the Album ‘Legal Stranger’ which contains hits like ‘Mama Africa’ and ‘Tell Me Why’. Prophet’s song ‘Doubting Me’ was named ‘Best reggae Song of the Year’ at the Ghana National Music Awards 2007. In 2008, his third album Prophecy” was released which was a compilation of powerful songs such as No Pain No Gain”,Give Me Back All the Natural Resources and the hit tune Hot and Cold” featuring the British–Ghanaian Rapper, Sway.

During his 2012 European tour with the Jamaican Artist, Turbulence, Black Prophet showcased his newest album “Tribulations which offers a unique fusion of African and Jamaican Reggae elements with traditional African music and hip–hop beats. “Tribulations” features the great Jamaican Reggae Artist, Capelton, the Nigerian Artist, 2face and the Ghanaian Artists, Tinny and Asem. “Tribulations” also promotes the single “Good Feeling” produced and featured by the world-renowned, Dean Fraser.
