Rapper Calista

Calista is the showbiz name – rap is her talent as a promising star in the making. She does her thing par excellence!

Calista’s rap talent came to bear at the age of six (6) when she started saying her nursery rhymes in perfect timing to a beat in her daddy’s Emklan music studio.

This pushed her father, the ever adroit rapper, singer, composer, sound engineer, director (music video), motivational speaker, and entrepreneur, Quophi Okyeame, to start producing beat for her to make a song he wrote.

She memorized the rap verses easy and in just a day, ‘Who is on the Mic?’ became her first ever song recorded. Even though the song was never released, commercially, her father, who is Calista’s trainer and mentor, challenged her on a journey which has brought her to her new single ‘I Can Make It’ – features Esi of Talented Kidz fame.
