It’s been seven good years since then Rap Heavyweight Champion Lord Kenya gave his life to Christ and there’s been no turning back since he took that bold step.
Born Abraham Akpor Kojo, Lord Kenya is still regarded by many as arguably the finest rapper Ghana has ever seen and the best hiplife artist the country has ever produced.
Lord Kenya rose to fame in the late 90s under the label Slip Music. In 1998, he released his first album titled Sika Card and from there he never looked back again.
Lord Kenya dominated the hiplife scene for close to a decade, with unrivaled success in the industry. This culminated into him being crowned Artiste of the Year and four other awards at the 2002 Ghana Music Awards.
However, in 2010, the hiplife icon claimed he was touched by the holy ghost to do the work of the Lord and as such he had to leave behind his past life, which according to him was filled with drugs and women.
Saturday, October 28 is the date Lord Kenya was ‘arrested’ by the Holy Spirit and as he celebrates the seventh anniversary of his calling, he tells Showbiz he has no regrets.
Since then Lord Kenya has never looked back again as he attends conferences and preaches the gospel.
