DaPrince - profile


Obeng Paul Tenkorang is my name, better known by my stage name as DaPrince(formerly Guccie DaPrince), a rapper, singer and songwriter born of Mr. Emmanuel Obeng Tuffour and Agartha Obeng Agyapomaa. Hails from Akim Oda in the Eastern Region but resides in Accra, the nation's capital, the Greater Accra Region of Ghana. Born at Kwashieman, a town in the Accra Metropolitan district, a district of the Greater Accra Region of Ghana where I was raised by my mother and father, relocated with my family to Agape at a very younger age where my father died. I'm the third born of two sisters and a brother. I again relocated to Akim Oda in the Eastern Region Ghana to stay with my uncle for a while due to the death of my father, where I attended Oda Senior High School even tho I gained admission at Accra Academy Senior High School. The name DaPrince was given to me by an old man who happened to be passing around the spot where I was having a freestyle session with a couple of friends of my in 2016. In Senior High School, I was known for my debut studio single dubbed "Thug life" which featured the then rap group, DPE, Dirty Psycho Entertainment, which was made up of Minie, JQ and Yoga Swag Mo (Now DJ Yoga). After high school, I paused the music because my uncle never liked the idea of me doing music. I attended MMCE college in 2009 where I thrilled the student body with a lot of amazing songs such as Swirl, Odo, Only One, etc and was made the President of the ENTERCOM in 2010 due to the musical side of my world which I won with no competition and not much campaign and proceeded to the Valley View University. In early 2017, I was introduced to a young man called Freddy who was the CEO of Redzon Record, had a home studio, and revamped my music career after I went on a musical break due to my university education. Freddy love my talent so he helped me record songs such as Yeah Yeah Yeah, Hold Me Now, Coming Back, Seal, Fotogbey, Dey Der and others which are making waves in the country. In 2017, I met Frisky, my first and current Manager, the CEO of Frisky Music Records(Frisky Entertainment), when I was shooting my first music visuals for my single, Dey Der, started working with him where I recorded songs such as Are you Alright, Bumper, YOLO, and others. Performed at places such as Vienna City Night Club(Circle), Fizzles Platinum, Kuami Eugene thank You tour, Rapper Gemini Club Tour, National Theatre and many other venues all in 2018. I am taking my music career to the next level in 2019 and beyond and wonna feature top-notch artists such as EL, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Shatta, Kelvynbwoy, darkovibes and others. Achieving this will be a dream come true.
