Raph Enzee sits on the edge of a wooden stool at a resort overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in his native Prampram. Real name Raphael Awuley Lartey, he reflects on the pandemic and its effects; but acknowledges how the isolation has impacted his latest EP, ENZEE NOT ENVY. His eyes gazings on the roaring waves, he says the latest project is different from any other product he has ever produced and delivered to the market. It has a local mixed with global appeal, he says.
The album cover shows a serious Raph with a gun pointing towards a certain direction. The gun, he explains, is a metaphor for the current transition from a ‘homeboy’ to an artist who can navigate around themes, without losing his identity. The themes of each song is distinct and one that encapsulates what the current global pop cultures has come to accept; an avant-garde towards the direction he wants to take his craft.
