Based on a terse Blackberry update of Empire Entertainment CEO Bola Ray, report was “Empire Entertainment has secured the signature of fast-rising rap star, Ese Emokiniovo, also known as Swag Kid”.
However, report reaching us today indicates that Swag Kid has pen his signature but not on Empire rather C-7 Entertainment. But notwithstanding, Bola has a strong bond with Swag Kid and C-7 Entertainment.
Based in the UK, the C-7 Entertainment Ghana unveiled its first GH artistes, Swag Kid and Big Chris (not duo) on Saturday, December 22nd, 2012 at the Roof Top of the C- 7 building (pink and blue storey) in Osu, behind the Papaye Restaurants at 11am.
Known as Obodai Christopher, Big Chris is a mixed race of a Chinese Malaysian mother and a Ghanaian father. Born and raised in London, the gem in 2008 graduated from Croydon College as a Sound Engineer. Having worked with a major studio in Brixton called Raw Material; Chris is a producer, writer, singer and a rapper.
For 6 weeks continuously, his first single was number #1 in the Channel U charts, UK. The musically inclined artiste is promising GH: “a different face in hip-hop”.
On the other hand, “Chris’s singles and mine will close the GH/America gab.” Swag Kid added. Turning twelve (12years) last month, Swag Kid started rapping at the age of three (3years) and from reliable sources, the little boy has become a threat to most of the senior dudes serving them with a dilemma as to whether to quit hip-hop or stepping up in term lyrics.
