Ofori Amponsah, the only artiste to have won 7 awards at one music awards night.

When you consider Kofi Nti’s ‘Rakia’ - Best Collaboration Award, Ofori Amponsah was involved in 8 Awards at the 2006 Ghana Music Awards.

Samuel Ofori Amponsah, also known by the name Mr. All 4 Real, is a Ghanaian singer-songwriter, born March 2, 1974, to Johnson Kwadwo Ofori and Georgina Nkansah, in Agogo, Ashanti Region, Ghana.

He is known to be an advocate for education and was enrolled in school before the age required.

He began his education at an Agogo practice school and later attended Konongo Odumase Senior High School, where he found his passion for writing poetry.

His poems were later used in his songs, most notably in his song "Asew."

He dropped out of school and later met music bigwig Daddy Lumba, gaining access into the music industry.

At an early age, he discovered his love for music. He began writing at the age of 13 after being inspired by the talented music legend Michael Jackson, which may account for his R&B style of music.

Throughout his career, he has released fourteen solo albums, the most recent being "Million Dollar," which was released in 2020. He is regarded as one of Ghana's best 21st century highlife musicians.

He won seven awards in one night at the 2006 VGMA awards, including 2005 Artist of the Year, and has a combined total of 17 Ghana Music Awards nominations, making him one of the highest nominated artists.

Samuel Ofori Amponsah performed internationally in London, New York, Chicago, and Sierra Leone.

His music has a heavy R&B influence. He has collaborated with the likes of Kofi Nti, Barosky, K. K. Fosu and Daddy Lumba.

Some of his most popular songs are "Asew", “Lady,” “Emmanuella,” "Odwo", and “Otoolege.”
