Medikal Business


He is the current owner of the Arab Money Gang (AMG) Record Label and uses it to help those who need the exposure like he once did and to help in elevating the upcoming musicians in his country.

Although it has been widely reported that AMG was started by Medikal and Chris Waddle, Medikal was the brains behind the whole business idea. 


Medikal Controversy


The musician isn't new to the eyes of the public with controversy as he was once in the firing line due to internet fraud accusations which were later cleared.

He has also had to deal with an attack from Kuami Eugene who took to Social Media saying that Medikal's music does not makes sense.

According to Obrafour in an interview on Hitz FM, AMG rapper Medikal is one of Ghana’s best exports that deserves more of the country’s attention and support.

Obrafour's interview with Hitz FM, Medikal is known to be one of the best in the Ghana rap game due to his lyricism, deliverance and certainly style of rap.

According to Obrafour's interview, he has exclaimed how Medikal is unappreciated & underrated in the Ghana music industry.

He further added,

“Musicians like Medikal should be given the same endorsement I gave Sarkodie to motivate and foster growth. Medikal is doing brilliantly well, he has good music and if I had the chance to do anything for him, I will not hesitate, he’s a good rapper.”

Obrafour continued,

“We need to show support for those who deserve it, I’m still the best Obrafour Ghana can ever have and that will never change simply because I endorsed Sarkodie as the next king”I believe life evolves and everything that has a beginning also has an end…”

Medikal has finally broken his silence about his ex Sister Derby's unwanted attention towards him. The rapper who is married to actress Fella Makafui, has been on the receiving end of a ploy by Derby to generate attention about their failed romance.

Derby posted a very cosy snap online of the former couple wishing him a happy birthday to the annoyment of Fella. Then she released a 'diss track' titled Sweet Ex, in which she mocks Fella and further claims she is not interested in her ex-lover.

With this Medikal had had enough and this was his response.
