Kobi Onyame is a Ghanaian/UK-based Hip Hop producer/artist in his late 20s. He describes his music as a fusion of his life's influences, circumstances and changes. At the age of 14, he started writing songs to beats he would make by looping the ends of popular Hip Hop records - this was the beginning of the inner producer. He only started to rap himself because he found it hard to find other young emcees in his area to rhyme over his beats. “I’ve always been a producer first… I only started to rap because no one would rhyme over my beats… 2009 saw Kobi move from strength to strength. Playing a range of shows ranging from intimate venues such as London's legendary Jazz Cafe to gracing the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury Festival. In recent times, he has also shared the bill with music greats including KanYe
West, Akon, De La Soul, Sway, Flo Rida, Wiley and more. The release of his single "He Said She Said" featuring UK rap heavyweight Sway saw Kobi's industry awareness increase, with support from UKs DJ's Semtex, MistaJam, Shortee Blitz, Ras Kwame, Vic Galloway, Jim Gellatly, DJ Black and more.
