Tedam Gideon was born and raised in Paga his stage name is Rapcha, Paga is a town in the Upper East Region of Ghana. “During my childhood days I loved listening to music. the musicians I adored at the time was okomfo Kwadee and Obrafuor. Sarkodie became my favourite artiste when he came into the industry and I still love his songs till now, I look up to Sark as my role model in the music industry. He is one artist I’ve seen grow from zero to hero and I always believe I can also make it. As time went on I started singing along to the songs I listened
as early as primary six, I started writing my own Raps. Yes I started as a rapper and singing became part of me later. I used my leisure time trying to write down some rap lines.
I step on my first stage in the year 2008 at the Paga 31st Women’s Center in a rap competition which I took the Third Position.
In 2010 I recorded my first song but it was a feature. my people started loving it.
I recorded my second track which was a single at the Ojwaen Ba studio at Achimota when I went to Accra and at that time my stage name was Slizy and the track I recorded was titled “Let it flow” and it was a hippop track
I came back home the same year to continue my education at the Navrongo Senior High school(Navasco) and that was when I changed my stage name to “Rapcha”. At NAVASCO I also recorded a song for the school and it was titled “Navasco dey bee” . I made a song for a political party in my constituency and it became a hit in the 2012 election and that was when I started singing
when I completed in 2014, I couldn’t continue to record new songs because of my financial status so I went back to Accra to search for greener pastures. unfortunately I couldn’t continue with music but the talent was there and I always knew one day I will step up because I prayed to God and I believe in Him.
My music life started again in 2016 when I returned to my hometown and made a song for my home based group called the “Scare Dem Family”(SDF)
It was the SDF that started pushing me and helping me to record new songs since then.The SDF is not a record label thus I’m not signed into any record label at the moment but they have helped me to release a few songs. But I want everyone to know Rapcha is here to stay” says Tedam Gideon aka Rapcha
