Biography

Guru, born Maradona Yeboah Adjei is a Ghanaian rapper and fashion designer. Gurunkz is also his name - with the ‘nkz’ meaning Nkoranza where he grew up.

Age

He was born on May 7, 1987, at a hospital in Accra.

Education

 Guru attended the Reverend John Teye Memorial. He then went to Apam secondary school, now Apam Senior High school. He continued his education at NIIT and IPMC studying architecture and computer networking. He further did marketing at Zenith College in Accra to soar up his brand.

Career

Guru was first spotted in the music scene after he recorded his first mixtape video with Sarkodie. He then went on to do another track called "Kasiebo" with rap Sofo Obrafour where he was named best-featured artist by 4Syte TV Music Video Awards. In 2011, he released the single "Lapaz Toyota". Because it was influenced by the Azonto style sounds, the song became a hit and was used by politicians during campaigns and even parliament settings. It was also played at the Big Brother Africa finals and Ghanaians couldn’t get enough of the track. It went viral. The same year he topped the chart after releasing another single "Karaoke" which also went viral. In 2013, Guru came out with six singles: "Amen", "Azonto Boys", "Abena", "Nkwada Nkwada" and "Alkayida (Boys Abre)". The Boys Abre track went viral to the extent that parliamentarians used the cliché in placards to demonstrate their grievances. 10yrs down the line, the cliché is still relevant and used by all ages to express hustling, suffering and enduring. In 2015, Guru collaborated with Sarkodie again on the song "Baggy Jeans."

He was compared to the likes of WizKid, Don Jazzy and Akon by hip-hop artist Jidenna as one of the greatest hip-hop artists in Africa.
