YAO BOBBY
Since the 1990s, Yao Bobby has been making his mark as an activist in African rap and has participated in building up a Pan-African hip hop movement. Among artists like Awadi, Xuman, and Smockey, today Yao Bobby is one of the most productive and prolific rappers in Africa. His artistic earmarks are strong lyrics in French and Ewe, a surprising flow, and the constant accompaniment by traditional instruments and styles. From the kora to afrobeat, deeply rooted in tradition, Yao Bobby’s hip hop is an image of African musical history.
