Who is Obibini?

Obibini focuses on strong lyrics when crafting his songs since he is passionate about creating high-quality content. Rhythmic Afrikan Poetry is his musical approach. His distinct approach integrates English and Twi, which he believes will aid him to advance in the music industry, thus his desire to learn to sing.
