Medikal Hometown, Family, Background Life

Medikal was born to Madam Portia Lamptey and Mr. James Frimpong in Sowutuom, Ghana.

The AMG Business star is a proud son of Sowutuom which is a suburb of Accra and that is his official hometown.

His mother, Mrs Portia Lamptey had it tough in his upbringing because she wanted him to be a qualified “Medical Doctor” and not “Medikal Rapper“.

She recounts how difficult it was in making Medikal concentrate on his studies at school and sometimes had to beat him but the ‘stubborn’ Medikal kept on rapping and rapping, and just rapping!

Medikal SHS Education, sacked from school twice

The ‘Omo Ada’ rapper first attended St John’s Grammar Senior High School in Accra but was sacked due to his strong desire in becoming a rapper.

According to his mother, Mrs Portia Lamptey, who spoke with DJ Andy Dosty in a phone interview on Hitz FM, Medikal was expelled from school because a lot of the boys had taken after him and wanted to become rappers which was disrupting academic activities on campus.

Medikal was then moved to the Odorgonno Senior High School also in Accra where he was once again sacked for the same reason.

His mother, however, made a timely intervention this time around by sweeping the school’s compound just to convince the headmaster to take Medikal back.

Medical Music Career

He began his career sometime in 2008 and at an early age rapping about doctors, surgeons, medicals and hospital facilities in general which earned him the stage name “Medikal”.

Medikal has always said his rap needs ‘medical attention’ not because his rap lines are ‘sick’ or unhealthy but because they are very creative, and the best of all.

He had his stage name bestowed on him by his school father when he was in Senior High School.

In 2010, rapper Criss Waddle signed Medikal to his Arab Money Gang (AMG) Business record label paving the way for him to become who he is today.

In 2018, the AMG signed artiste had the opportunity to grace the popular Tim Westwood‘s Show.

Medikal vs Strongman Lyrical ‘Beef’

After Medikal won the Best Rapper Award at the 2019 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, he stoked controversy by saying that he saved rap music from dying in Ghana some 4 years ago.

The ‘Omo Ada’ hit-maker continued that since 2015, he has been the only rap soldier who has been holding the rap game down in Ghana.

That assertion by Medikal didn’t go down well with some Ghanaian rappers including Strongman.

The two — Medikal & Strongman — started ‘dissing’ and ‘beefing’ each other lyrically which set the entertainment industry in Ghana on fire.

They later settled their ‘beef’ amicably by collaborating on a single track titled “Bossu”.
