ON JULY 6, 2014 Ghanaian famous hip life artiste, Theophilus Tagoe, known in the music space as Castro Under Fire but popularly Castro, disappeared with his supposed girlfriend Janet Bandu after reports of the two drowning in the Volta Lake.

But currently in the voice of budding Ghanaian afro beats/ hip life artiste, Kobina Richiz, born Ahmed Amin, one feels Castro is strongly back.

Kobina Richiz, who describes himself as humble, determined and a go-getter, says he does not lose focus “and always get my eyes on the prize which I go for. And I am allergic to negativity.”

In an interview with Kobina Richiz, he said had the passion for music at an early age and took inspiration from Sas Squad, Castro and other good artistes. He said started music professionally in 2011, when he gathered confidence to begin writing his own songs.

According to the artiste, who sings like  and takes his inspiration from Castro, said he is in the music scene  to add up to what has already been created by creating more platforms for the upcoming artistes to shine so that they will not go through more stress.

Richiz has seven songs on his current EP, which were produced by Jaynim Beat, Konfen, DoB Music and Jay Wyse. His current single, ‘Higher’, is an inspirational song, which talks about realities of life.

“I chose the title because I always derive positive from negative. It talks about love, inspirations and the realities of life,” he said.

He also revealed that he is musically related to top Ghanaian artiste Sarkodie and will soon feature him on a song. Richiz also boasted that he had no competitor in the music scene because he was on a mission to take African’s music to the global stage.

He encouraged his fellow artistes to stay humble, determined and just focus on whatever they do and never think of giving up because nothing good comes easily.
