talking about rap music in the northern sector theres is one

name which always pops up and that name is BLACK ECHO..Tashiru

as he is known in private life was born to Alhaji Tahiru and

Mama Ayishetu(Ayisha) was born on 9th january 1982 in Tema

polytechnic ,According him life growing up was not all that

smooth especially when he had to live all by him self whiles

studying in tamale with all these thorns he was able to survive

and now enjoying the fruist of hard work and determinations.

He grew up in a city which has produced and still bringing out

finest music icons some of the artist from that hood are B.E.T

BEST AFRICAN ACT OF THE YEAR 2012 Sarkodie ,R2bees just to

mention a few.He started by miming the tracks of hiplife

granpapa reggi rockstones  since he was the shy type he didnt

make him self known to his peers.he said there was a music

competition going on in community 8 and his closed friends who

knew his hiden talent encourage him to take part and luckily

enough he took the 2nd position that competition,this

competition boosted his morale and he started recording his own

demos and appearing on radio shows on Kasahari level in Adom fm

and performing on minor stages in the capital of Ghana. Black

echo realised that music in the northern part is soly hilife and

reggae so he took it upon himself  to be a poineer of rap music

in the north of the doing this he try his best to

feature underground rap artist in his albums which led to the

fromation of his record label called blackecho records where he

groom underground rap artist.

black echo and his boys rap in Dagbanli and called thier genre

Dagbanli-pop black echo have 3 solid albums to his credit  and

together woth his boys they have 2 albums and working on the  on

thier 3 album Odeshi which have mohammedu on it and they are

still promoting singles from his 3rd album which is tiltled

Dagbanli pop .talking about stage performances black echo  is a

king in that sector he and his boys  all try thier best to

murder the sage and leaves that memmroies on thier fans for a

very long time he said his secreat to that sucess is they do a

lot of praticing and  and planned  head, they dont wait to the

last minuete,

Due to his hard work black echoe and his boys have been invited

to by renowned sound engineer hammer of the last two record who

is noted to have brought sarkodie,tinny,ayigbe edem who are

rapping in thier repectives mother tongues to limelight.and also

they are in talks with most of the srtist in the south to do a

colaborations with fans of black echo should be

expecting  more hits from.

black echo was has signed a one year deal with Carlos

entertainment said "northern music is growing but the bussines

aspect is rather detoriating because there is no bold manager to

spend up to 2000 ghana cedis in branding an artist and i think

is because they lack eduction if they really know what they will

get from in branding an srtist they will do it and also some of

us lack education in what we are doing, is like some of the

upcoming  artist  thinks since he can can go behind the mic and 

rap on an intrumental he think thats all and that makes him a

musician but they dont understand what it entailles .

at his liesure he spend much time with his boys,watch funny

movies all give them morale to be in the game..he is also the

sales manager at KESMI FM and you can catch him live on his

sunday shows between 5 to 9pm on kesmi fm
