As music is integral to the fabric of Ghanaian culture and folklore, so is the name Reggie Rockstone synonymous and integral to the evolution of the music we so enjoy today. The story of Reggie Rockstone’s entrance into the African Music Scene dates back to 1994, when he returned from the West and was at the forefront of spearheading a new genre of music with the merging of Hip-Hop and Ghanaian Highlife.
Born Reginald Yaw Asante Ossei on the 11th of April in the United Kingdom, Reggie Rockstone spent his early days in Ghana, divided between Accra and Kumasi to be precise. Affectionately called “The Godfather of Hip-Life”, he spearheaded or pioneered one of Ghana’s original musical genres, Hip-Life.
