The Rap ? Addis Ababa

Addis Ababa is the capital city of Ethiopia, but in Ghana, it is the name of a hiplife group who are produced by a former dance champion, Sasu Alista, son of a boxing champion.

Addis Ababa comprises four Moslem brothers who are out to prove that they are also talented in music. Acid, Blay, Odefour and Obofuor are the new kids on the block and want to shake the musical world.

Their debut album is out and enjoying playing on airwaves, but when on stage, Addis Ababa is simply marvelous and unpredictable. They can do anything as far as hiplife is concerned.

?Yenie?, the song that everybody wants to listen to was recorded at CDS Studios at Kaneshie in Accra under the record label CDS, by innovative song engineer, Doe, who says Addis Ababa has a great future. The Ghana Music Awards 2005 is their target.
