Africa And Europe
Friction moved from Ghana to Holland in 2006, when he got accepted to a Dutch Music University (the Rock-academy) as the first African artist ever.
Since that time, Friction is dividing his time between Europe and Africa.At the moment, Friction is based in Holland, as he and his band have a lot of shows scheduled there for this year.
Coming From Far
Born and raised in one of Ghana’s big ghetto’s, many people might have thought Friction wouldn’t make it far in life. With his talent to perform and his characteristic music style -a mix of reggae, Afro-pop and hip-life.
Friction has come far and has proven the doubters really wrong.And he is not stopping there. Friction is always working hard to open more doors. This show as support act of Morgan Heritage is a great sign of a promising future.
