Ghana Music Awards 2009
During a visit to a church one day, the popular songwriter, composer and singer, Osuani Afrifa, spotted her and invited her to help him produce a music album by singing some songs he had written and composed. However, her mentor, Mr. Rockson did not like the idea and therefore discouraged her from granting Osuani’s request.
The gospel diva, Obaapa Christy was born in Kumasi as Christiana Twene, to Mr. Akwasi Twene and Madam Mary Amoah Twene. She is the second of nine children.
