hiplife
 n.— «Hiplife was almost solely the brainchild of Reginald “Reggie Rockstone” Osei. Memory lane: Whilst we were both in Accra from London on Christmas holidays in 1994, I vividly recollect meeting Reggie at a friend’s place and hearing him rap in Twi. I was quite taken aback, for I’d never heard it done before—and it was effortlessly good. “I’m not new to this rap thing,” hiplife’s founding father—who also coined the genre’s name—tells me almost nine years later.» —“Hiplife: A New Dawn; A New Day” by Omar Dubois Ghana Music.com July 26, 2004.
