Yaw Rhyme-Bo Out Soon With Asem Bisa

Rhyme-Bo Born to Mr. Mathias Ayi and Mrs. Grace Adofoa, Dominic Ayittey Ayi also known as Rhyme-Bo has always wished to become a famous artiste. From his childhood, this young talented chap who was a dancer way back 1982 started doing copyrights of songs made by the group New Edition.

Later on, he realised he had the capabilities and potentials of making it big in the hiplife scene due to the encouragements from his friends. He then joined a short-lived group by name Asofo Mma and began performing with them at functions like Fun World.

Afterwards, he went ahead to pursue a solo career in 1997 and because of the splendid performance he put up during shows, he was introduced to Kwame O. Weesk(a Liberian renowned producer) by his bosom friend who goes by the name A Square. Thereafter, he was signed on Kwame O. Weesk?s record label called Miepo Records.

Rhyme-Bo then came out with his maiden album entitled ?Asem Aba? in the year 2000. This tremendous album which has 8 tracks received massive airplay. Some of the songs on the album are ?Asem Aba? featuring La, ?Yasoma Me?, ?Obra? featuring La, ?Afotuo?, ?Odo Ye De?, ?Mayi Me Do?, ?Makoma Mu Toffee? and lastly ?Ghana Mmaa?. 

He then came out with his second album in the year 2002 titled ?Biribi Aba? which also had lovely tunes like ?Wodo Beku Me? (backed by Nana Yaw Obeng), ?Obra a Yebo? featuring Nana Yaw (sampled from Nana Kwame Ampadu?s ?Oman Bo Adwo? track), ?Jealousy?, ?Fa Wo Nsa Beto Me Kon Mu? featuring Mad Dog (sampled from senior Eddie Donkor?s ?Kwasi Amankwaa Kristosom? track).

Other tracks on the album were ?Bo Me Don? featuring Freddie B, ?Gye Me? featuring Big Willie, ?Nkabom? and a remix of ?Fa Wo Nsa Beto Me Kon Mu? featuring Mad Dog and Josilia which closes the album. This album was executively produced by Money Matters in London.

The lyrically gifted hiplife dude who has featured on several tracks such as ?Kasapreko? (made by Nana Owusu), ?Eka Sen? (Nana Nsia Piesie), ?Biakoye? (Randy Nunoo), ?Yesu Nkoaa? (about to be released by Michael Dwamena), ?Alomo? which has not yet been released by the German based artiste by name Ekow Plastic, ?It?s too late? (Nana Owusu) and lastly ?Ode Ku Me? (Nana Yaw Obeng) is yet to come out with his sensational album titled ?Asemmisa? which consists of 8 tracks.

This time round, Rhyme-Bo promises the general public of good tunes as he always does.  ?Asem Bisa? (Question) featuring Paa Sammy which has a highlife feeling opens the album. In this song, Rhyme-Bo poses a question to listeners which goes like ?Who do lie a lot, men or women? 

Second on the album is another hit track titled ?Shakara Woman? featuring Naa Kay (of the group Nkasei) and Nana Braimah. This song is dedicated to the late Fela from Nigeria and it talks about how a woman deceived a guy and in the end left him for someone else. It is a blend of both Yoruba and ?Pigeon? languages.

?Medofo Aye Me Adee? (a true story) featuring the sensational George Jarrah comes third on the album. Dominic (Rhyme-Bo) dedicates this song to all those who are being dumped by guys after they (guys) have an affair with them (girls) especially his soul sister who was impregnated by a guy who later on left her.

Mad Dog, La and Nana Bati collaborate with Rhyme-Bo on the next song titled ?Kwansima? which praises ladies that even though they are beautiful, they should not be hard on us (the guys). 

There are other lovely tracks on this album which touches on the everyday aspects of life.

Rhyme-Bo who was inspired by the late Notorious B.I.G shows some form of gratitude to Bola Ray of Joy FM, Kwame O. Weesk (Miepo Records) and all those who have helped in diverse ways. He ends by saying ?All of you should watch out because I am here to stay?.

From my perspective point of view, I think this guy has got great stuff to offer the general public. He can be reached on 233 24 425 9096.
