Ghanaian dancehall artiste, Epixode, has indicated that his parents played a major role in making him the kind of musician he is.

Epixode in an interview on Radio XYZ’s ‘Arts in View’ mentioned that his mother has on a number of occasions mentored him on how to play drums and percussions.

According to the singer, his love for reggae stems from the fact that his mother made sure he listened to reggae songs during his childhood days.

“She used to be the lead vocalist for Wolume. Growing up, she gave me a reggae song to listen to every morning. I was forced to listen to it. She taught me how to play percussions and drums. Even now, any song I write, sometimes I seek advice from her. She teaches me some pitches and rhythms,” he said.

The ‘Mandela’ hit maker also recognised his father for the efforts he made to ensure that he gets educated.

“Daddy is also a blessing. He taught me how to be principled. At a point, he wanted me to stop doing music and go to school. I got a degree and came back to music,” he noted.

Epixode is convinced education has influenced the songs he writes and he is able to research and put together mature lyrics.

“Education is the reason some of us do songs which can stand the test of time. I’m an artiste. I paint as well. I studied History in school so it helps me when I’m putting lyrics together. Education is the greatest tool,” he said.

Known in private life as Theophilus Nii Ardey Otoo Junior, Epixode is a professional sculptor.

He is the brain behind the visible graffiti works and backdrops for music videos for Edem (Heybaa video), Bradez (Sika), Bisa Kdei (Sika video), among others.
