In his solo journey, he brings something totally new and different. Rapping predominantly in his local mother tongue, Kusaal, Obed Psych brings a new level of richness and maturity to his flow. When asked what inspired this new direction, Obed said, “Growing up in a small village in the Upper East region of Ghana, I faced many challenges that have shaped me into the person I am today. Living without pipe-borne water, electricity, and even cars, life was tough. But through it all, I held onto a dream – a dream of using my music to inspire and empower my people. That dream has led me back to my roots, to my native tongue of Kusaal, and to the realization of the power of God for hope and empowerment. My middle name, Winpang, means God’s Power, and it has become the foundation of my music. Through my lyrics, I seek to inspire my people to be more, to rise above their circumstances, and to embrace their heritage. I want to show them that no matter where they come from or what they have been through, they too can achieve their dreams with the power of God. By rapping in Kusaal, I hope to not only preserve the beauty of our language but also to encourage our people to take pride in our culture and identity. I want to inspire the youth to embrace their heritage and to use it as a source of strength and inspiration in all that they do.
As I embark on my new projects, I am excited to share my music with the world and to bring a fresh perspective to the rap scene. Through my music, I hope to uplift and inspire, to give hope and encouragement, and to spread the message that with God’s power, anything is possible. I believe that by reconnecting to our roots, we can find the strength to overcome any challenge, and we can be more than we ever thought possible.”
