MAD FISH is one of Ghana’s biggest stars. His fresh, innovative sound is something to be appreciated. Ghana has been exchanging musical ideas with the Caribbean for hundreds of years, and MAD FISH continues to do that in his unique way. Interchanging the Hip Life sound with a Reggae vibes and creating a musical artistry. Unlike many of Ghana’s current musicians, he’s honed his talents through the streets.
When he was 5 yrs old he was trained by two Jamaican friends who were based in Ghana. At the age of 13 he won the best artist for talented kids (KIDDAFEST) at the national theater in Ghana. At the age of 15, then a student at Kumasi High Secondary School, MAD FISH was already hosting his own programs at the local radio station during his weekends away from school.
Alongside his manager and producer, Method-man. A natural-born entertainer, he was already taken on tours, concerts and shows throughout his high school years. His ground breaking sound was a force to be reckoned with at that time and his effortless performances (from such a young artist) never failed to get his audiences on their feet. He was loved (and still loved) by both kids and adults. At 16, he was voted Entertainment Prefect for his school (KUMASI HIGH SCHOOL) and he changed the musical spirit of the school until his completion. He recorded songs with other artist before hitting the stage at the age 24. In 2002, after a series of collaborations, he landed a record deal and completed his first album – the chart topping WO NE ME BABY, still one of Ghana’s most loved songs today. In recent years, MAD FISH has performed with (and sometimes upstaged) SHAGGY, THE LATE LEBO, from South Africa, and other artists.
He has toured in the UK, US, Italy, Germany, Holland, Canada, Gabon, and Liberia. He was nominated 5 times for the music awards 2004 in Ghana, and was invited to Gabon by EBEN ENTERTAINMENT, along with Shaggy, Ravon, Lebo and many more to celebrate the birthday of the President at their national stadium. He was also the Headlining artist among others, to be invited to Liberia during their Election time by AMBASSADOR, EX FOOTBALLER, PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE GEORGE WEAH, to perform during their peace campaign. MAD FISH has traveled far and wide and made collaborations with many different artists all over Africa. Hailing from the Great ASHANTI STATE, born RAYMOND FRIMPONG, MAD FISH is a very intelligent, extremely humble person who has dreams of sharing his amazing talent and persona to the world. He has two albums to his credit and working on another. Much more is to be expected from MAD FISH in the near future!
