Born to his Ghanaian parents Qwaachi and Mama Theresa, Foto Copy is the firstborn among his siblings. His little sister known as Blessing is his only sister. He has three songs featuring Clemento Suarez, Shatta Wale, and South African legend Uhuru.
Foto Copy's Music Career
Starting the records by making history at his virtual concert some 11 months ago, Foto Copy became the first-ever musician at his age to host his virtual concert even without recording a song. The event saw heavyweight musicians like Tinny, Article Wan, Kumi Guitar, and many more perform with him. The event dubbed “I am Kasoa Virtual Concert” pulled a massive crowd who came to witness the beginning of his greatness.
The young musician Foto Copy released his first song “Megye me dow” a few months after the concert to cement his intention of taking Ghana music global. He was featured in a documentary by Joy prime, Pulse Ghana, and Pulse Nigeria as the youngest artist from Africa.
Foto Copy’s first single has made waves in the country. Being his first single, he has won a lot of hearts from the streets to the highest level as far as visiting the highest office in Ghana, the Parliament house. His selflessness as impacted by his dad has also been a catalyst in opening doors for him.
Combining his education with talent at such a young age, one will be wondering how the young boy blends it. He clarified in an interview on Okay FM Mid-morning drive with Halifax Nii Ansah when he was quizzed on this subject matter, “I go to school, I come home, and then I do a little bit of music before I go to bed after my studies and homework”.
Foto Copy's Awards and Nominations
With his first song, Foto Copy has already gotten over 10 nominations and he won some of them including the Young Artist Of The Year at Emerging Music Awards 2021. He also got nominated as the next-rated act of the year from the Central Region at 3 Music awards. He has also performed on several big stages including Ghana Music Awards USA, Central Music Awards nominees announcement, and recently, Pulse Influential Awards 2021.

What makes Foto Copy Unique is the fact that he never took part in any reality show or any kid contest to unearth his talent. He told Giovani Caleb on 3fm that he will rather wish to perform at such events and reality shows than take part as a contestant. His manager dubbed his father has been his coach and inspiration throughout these 11 months of exposure.
As an artist, he can only get better with his talent. His 2nd song ” School Dey be” featured dancehall maestro Shatta Wale. He has also built the foundation for his Education and Talent tour which started earlier this year. After surpassing a million views on youtube with School Dey Be, Foto Copy featured South African legend Uhuru on his latest song Tomorrow.
