Ghana can’t stop listening to J.Derobie

Derick Obuobie Junior used to think he was unlucky, but a rapid rise to superstardom has changed that.

Though the 24-year-old, now better known as J.Derobie, didn’t always get the job or the girl, he was the chosen one when it mattered most.

He entered emPawa’s $300,000 Africa-wide search for the continent’s next big music stars without huge expectations due to his past bad luck.

However, of the thousands of entries, the dancehall performer proved to be one of beloved Nigerian singer Mr Eazi’s 10 favourites.

The video for Poverty, the inspiring single that J.Derobie released as part of his prize, is the most popular on the entire emPawa YouTube channel with over 1.2 million views.

Mr Eazi isn’t his only famous fan. Shatta Wale, Kranium, Sarkodie, Popcaan and Stonebwoy are among the artists to have shown support for Ghana’s newest sensation since Poverty came out.

The latest success of his life-changing 2019 was being announced last week as one of the acts appearing at this year’s Ghana Meets Naija on June 8 at the Accra International Conference Centre.
