Worlasi born and raised as Worlasi Langani in Agbozume in the Volta region of Ghana is a musician and a painter. His abilities cut across music and figure painting. Worlasi’s interest in music started while listening to radio, and sampling the beats of songs he felt didn’t quite meet high standards. His inspiration to do music comes from personal experiences and what goes on around him, which he translates into instrumentals and then to words.
Worlasi’s music has seen him share the stage with some of Ghana’s finest musical acts on platforms such as ACCRA.ALT’s Sabolai Radio, Dark Suburb’s awakening concert, Beatphreaks, and The Unheard Voices among others. He was also touted by BBC’s DJ Rita Ray as one of the artists to watch in 2017.
Worlasi’s musical career can be traced back to his first breakthrough single, Ay3 Adz3, which saw him rise to fame. He later released his debut 14-track mixtape “Nuse” that earned him more respect and saw him regarded as a bonafide star. His latest release “Uncut”, a 13-track album features artists such as Krack Gyamfi, Emperaw and Laelaure. Worlasi has also collaborated with Ghana greats EL, Manifest and Sarkodie.
Worlasi stands tall as a Ghanaian rapper, singer, music producer and songwriter with near excellent vocal ability. His versatility enables him to switch from singing to rapping in English, Ewe, Fante, Ga and Pidgin. His songs are famous for their refreshing and inspiring lyrics – a mixture of soul and hip-hop blended with African flavour. Some of his greatest hits include Too Naughty, Nuse, One Life, Nukata and You Saw Me. He makes his debut on Coke Studio Africa 2017 as a Big Break Artist and is paired with Kenya’s Sauti Sol and Nigeria’s Chidinma. His Current album dubbed the man and the God has seen many people talking about him and his style of music.
Worlasi was seen in a short video lamenting heavily after his music was used by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC party) during their Manifesto launch yesterday at the UPSA Hall, Greater Accra.
Worlasi in the said video which was aired on Citi tv during a discussion on the entertainment industry lamented on the need for the NDC to pay him and his management for using his song without their knowledge. He is calling on his fan base WORLAMIES to speak out and get the party to “wire him” for the already used songs. The “Every man be god” singer also disassociate himself from any political affiliation and stated that he has started the paper works. He has called on his army of funs to rally behind him in these situations and not only demanding for videos etc which involves the use of money.
