Reggie Rockstone represents Ghana at the Idols W/A finals 5/24/2007
Don’t miss the climax of Idols West Africa at Planet One this Sunday at 6pm on MNet.

There will be great music, tension, suspense and maybe even a few tears as Timi and Omowomi battle for the historic title of Idols West Africa

To make Ghanaians even more proud, the godfather of hiplife, Reggie Rockstone will be guest judge.

Born in the U.K. on April 11th in the late 1960''s, Rockstone attached himself to the Hip Hop movement in the early 80''s as a dancer.

Travelling on a tri-continental basis, he broadened his Hip Hop scope. A natural performer and trained actor, he grabbed the mike with no problem when his calling came in 1991.

His first "fifteen minutes of fame" came as a dancer in Accra, Ghana in the early 80''s. His second chance of fame came in 1992-93 as member of one of the top rap groups from London, England.

He belonged to PLZ (Parables, Linguistics and Zlang) with Fredi Funkstone, Jay (both from West Africa) & DJ Pogo of the U.K. Number one hits from PLZ included "If it Aint PLZ" and an EP entitled "Build a Wall Around Your Dreams" released on an independent label called "Go For the Juggler."

1994 became the watershed or turning point in his entertainment career. The rap scene in London was not rewarding enough.

He returned to Accra to encounter a whole generation of people grooving to African-American rythms, all heavily influenced by the same elements of Hip Hop that he knew all too well. He had an ingenious idea! Use the hip hop beats with authentic phat production and lace it with true African dialect; The Akan language of Twi.

Launched on an independent label called KASSA RECORDS that he partly owns, Reggie Rockstone has reached Ghanaians and non-Ghanaians across four continents.

He has international acclaim and has performed in many places such as West Africa, UK, France, USA & Switzerland. His videos are aired as far as South Africa on M-Net''s 24 hr music television station, Channel ''O'' which has an audience of millions across a large part of Africa (44 countries!).

Don’t forget that the voting system has changed in the final week of Idols West Africa. Voting lines are open from Monday 21 May at 20:30 (CAT) and close on Saturday 26 May at 12:00 (CAT).

To vote for Omawumi TEXT 10 (and only the number ‘10’) and to vote for Timi TEXT 7 (and only the number ‘7’) to Areeba (1444), Kasapa (15626) and Tigo/One Touch (15626).
