From surviving first Liberian civil war to refugee camp in Ghana, Tito Gee raises the bar in the diaspora
As a youth during the turbulent 1990s in Liberia due to the First Liberian Civil War, Younkpawo Tito Glepay was partly raised in a refugee camp in Ghana, until his departure for the United States in 1998 where he reunited with his mother and grandmother. In the years ahead, such perseverance and talent landed Tito Gee his first breakthrough in the world of music; a chance to create the soundtrack for 2008 Liberian movie 'Imported Bride'. The song proved a massive success in his homeland, further propelling him in the US scene, where he went on to do shows alongside some American artists, earned nominations for major Liberian awards and subsequently won ''Song of the Month'' on Philadelphia's Power 99 Radio with the song 'Talk About Us'. Tito Gee's career continues to be on the rise and with the rapper hosting a slew of well-received songs like; 'All Day' featuring Bucky Raw, 'Fake News', 'Dr. Talk' and the recently released 'Kaparlu' featuringKpanto on his resumé, there's definitely a lot more to expect from Liberia's finest rapper yet.
