El V: So what’s ur musical genre. Hiplife Hippop or?
Agbeko: Though Hiplife is fusion of a little bit of hiphop and highlife but like I said I deliver mostly what I get inspired with so you should not be surprised when I sometimes do hiphop.
El V: When did you start music and How did it hapen?
Agbeko: Wow! Well,I starter doing music when I was in school but later after school someone in the ghetto(that’s Grey of Mobile Boys Fame) directed me where I can meet hammer because of the kind the of rap l do big ups to Grey anytime,anywhere,thanks bro. So I did follow up and funny enough I was a twi rapper by then. So when I first met hammer he accepted me and welcomed me in the last two camp. Later he kept accessing me , he told me he can feel am more of an ewe rapper than twi anytime I give him twi. So he gave me an assignment to write a full verse in ewe which I did and I realised myself that ewe was my thing but it was hidden in me till hammer discovered it. I give him that respect and props all the time .Salute to hammer of the last2 all the time
Agbeko: So I had the chance to come out a last2 compilation titled- Sounds of our time, which came 27th DEC 2004 and I was the first ewe rapper from that side.
El V: What hapen before you left hammer’s camp? Some say you had a beef with Edem. How true is that?
Agbeko: Well I wouldn’t say but I think it was Edem who got beef with me anyway so I don’t have much to say on that.
El V: Wow!. Did you decide to live hammer or he made you live? What really hapen?
