Reggie Rockstone: Even at the peak of my career, I was a big fan of Obrafour

Hiplife Grandpapa, Reggie Rockstone has disclosed that at the peak of his music career, he was a big fan rapper Obrafour.

According to him, contrary to perceptions, there is nothing strange about an artiste being a big fan of fellow artiste.

Credited for starting the Hiplife genre in Ghana, Reggie Rockstone stated on microblogging site Twitter Wednesday that “another thing I have noticed with a lot of Ghanaian folks is that they find it strange based on the way they are that an artist can be a big fan of another!”
