CELEBRATED Hiplife artiste, Obrafour, who will be celebrating two decades of being in the music industry in November this year says he has no plans of quitting music.
The Pae Mu Ka artiste who revealed this at this year’s Rhythms On The Runway organised by Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD), at the Christianborg Castle, Osu in Accra on Saturday, August 31 said the numerous awards and honours he had received was an indication that people did not want him out of the game.

Speaking after being presented with a smock by popular media personality, Kwaku Sintim-Misa (KSM) at the show, Obrafour said, “I’m not retiring because it seems people don’t want me out of the game. All these honours show that I’m still needed so I’m not retiring,” he said.
Prior to his speech, Obrafour had taken patrons down memory lane with his lovely performance of Pae Mu Ka, the song which announced his entry onto the music scene. He was joined by Cy Lover, who featured on the song and the duo excited the audience.

This year’s Rhythms On Da Runway was a well organised event which kicked off with a performance tribute to Ghana from spoken word artist, Nana Asaase. His recital reflected the ‘Year of Return’ theme.
He remembered our forefathers and ancestors who were taken into slavery about 400 years ago and how despite the challenges, Ghana still exudes glory as a nation.
This year’s event gave patrons another night of spectacular fashion by some African designers interspersed with music.
There were designs from Stephapp Ghana from Wa, Yartel designs from Cape Coast, Palse from South Africa, Mudi Africa, Lumiere and Abrantie Collections with popular names such as actor, James Gardiner, Joojo Coleman, Kalybos and Jay Foley modelling on the catwalk.
Apart from Obrafour who delighted guests, performances from Cina Soul, Pat Thomas, Episode, Pricki of Obaa F3f33f3 fame, Paulina Oduro, Trigmatic, Joe Mettle and Stonebwoy were on point.
It was also a well attended event from industry folks with the likes of Efia Odo, Akumaa Mama Zimbi, Prince David Osei and Nollywood’s Richard Mofe Damijo in attendance.
