In a few days, rapper E.L will officially launch his BAR (Best African Rapper) mixtape at the Alliance Francaise.
In between preparations for the event, he took some time off to throw shots at “so called top rappers who run away” when he offered them a verse on his upcoming mixtape.
He seems to insinuate the “so called top rappers” are lyrically no match for his talent.
Read his full tweet below.

EL’s hit records include “Obuu Mo”, “Kaalu”, “One Ghana”, “Auntie Martha”, “Shelele”, “Mi Naa Bo Po”, “Koko” and “KaaBuAme, See me Sometime, Abaa and Pay Like a Boss”. He gained fast reputation for his crazy club bangers and spectacular Afrobeats sound and has been constant rise since the release of his debut album “Something Else” in June 2012.
E.L grew up in Dansoman, a suburb of Accra. He first attended St. Martin De Porres School in Dansoman where he excelled as a top student and later transferred to Jack and Jill where he completed his Junior Secondary School level. He then gained admission into Presbyterian Boys Secondary School (PRESEC), where he discovered his musical talent.

During his first year in the university, EL signed to Jayso’s Skillions Records alongside other notable young Ghanaian underground artists like Ball J, Gemini, Kevin Beats, Killmatic and Lil Shaker, and helped Jayso co-produce the Skillionaires Demotape. However, after graduating from the university, the Skillions broke up and EL became a solo artist.
He acquired a studio in Asylum Down and began working on a new mixtape. He went as far as releasing a single, “Chale (So Fli)”, with Jay Foley, Wolf and Kwaku T (remix). However the mixtape was never released.
EL relocated to a better studio at Osu, and invested all his available funds in acquiring state-of-the-art equipment much to the chagrin of family and friends.
