The history of Hiplife won’t be complete without acknowledging the immense contribution of Ex-Doe. He and his partner Chicago really pumped much adrenaline into the genre when Ghanaians raised serious doubt its sustainability. He is best remembered for hit songs like Daavi Mede Kuku (released in 1996 and featuring Chicago), the highly controversial Maba, Yebre, Gogo Wo Ho’ ft. Pricky and a host of others.
Unfortunately Ex-Doe, born Richard Kwasi Siaw Akrofi has not been heard on the music scene for a quite a long time. He granted an interview to the media and explained the reason behind his hiatus. “Making babies at an earlier age took my concentration from music because I had brought people into the world and I had to concentrate on them,” he said.
“My first album dropped when I was about 17 years old and when I was around 19 years, I had my first child. Currently, my firstborn is 19, the second born is 17 and the last born is 5 years old,” he further noted.
He, however, assured he bounce back in style with a new album. He hinted that he has a song with Stonebwoy called Money, Ankaa ft. Kumi Guitar.
