Legendary Michael Elliot Kwabena Okyere-Darko, known in showbiz as Obrafour, has disclosed that he was threatened several times after the release of his hit song, ‘Kasiebo’.
In an interview with Zylofon FM’s Sammy Flex, the rap mogul said he received several phone calls, majority of which threatened his life.
”Experience is the best teacher. I have seen it, I have experienced it before. I can confirm here that when I released Kasiebo, I received death threats. I received it several times from Kumasi.” he said.
According to him, he went to see Okyeame Kwame prior to that to offer his apologies to him to bring an end to the public assertions towards the song.
‘Kasiebo’ was released about nine years ago and caused uproar among music lovers, largely because it was labelled as a direct attack on the personalities of Okyeame Kwame (O.K) and Obour.
In Guru’s lyrics in the song, he alleged that a certain musician by name O.K had defiled a teenager in Kumasi. He also downplayed Okyeame Kwame’s claim that he was then the best rapper alive.
Similarly, Guru mentioned Obour and made a mockery of his contributions towards efforts at reviving Hiplife, a genre the latter felt was dying at the time.
Guru teased that Obour was extremely excited that he had lost out to Shatta Wale on the ‘Song of the Year’ award at the 2014 VGMAs.
Obrafour has been described by many as one musician whose songs had swayed generations of music lovers.
He is known for songs like ‘Pae Mu Ka’, ‘Asem Sebe’, ‘Yaanom,’ ‘Maame’, ‘Kwame Nkrumah’, ‘Kasiebo, among others.
