Xtreme GH now called 'Nuru'

Not too long after the release of his debut single, blogger cum musician, Xtreme GH says he prefers to be known as 'Nuru'. The blogger turned musician released hip-hop song, 'Mali Zani' featuring Edem some few weeks ago.

In an interview, the rapper stated that the reason for his name change regards the need to project a specific and distinct identity to the international market.

He emphasized that the change is natural and inevitable. "The earlier I do this, the better. I am pretty new to the showbiz industry. It is not going to be as stressful as if I were a mainstream artiste already. 'Nuru' is my birth name as well," Nuru added.

Other Ghanaian artistes who have gone through similar changes include; Efya, Zeal (VVIP), Shatta Wale, Edem, Akoo Nana, Samini, among others.
