Reggie Rockstone (Reggie Osei) is referred to as the Godfather of hiplife and the one who is credited with its formation and rise, as well as its international face. His father, the late Ricci Osei, was a famous musician in Ghana. Rockstone was a popular dancer in his youth and also did some hip hop with PLZ (Parables, Linguistics and Zlang) in the UK.

Reggie Rockstone burst onto the scene in the 1980's as a dancer performing around Accra, New York and London. He is a trained actor and started rapping in the early 90's.

He joined PLZ (Parables, Linguistics and Zlang) with Fredi Funkstone, Jay (both from West Africa) & DJ Pogo of the U.K. They had hits like 'If it a'int PLZ' and 'Build a Wall Around Your Dreams'.

In 1994, he returned to Ghana and realised that the youth had been engulfed by hip hop but felt they did not understand the music as it was not in their own language and did not communicate issues dear to them. He decided to start rapping in Twi and christened this 'new genre' hiplife. Hiplife would be the marriage of the elements of hip hop and rap merged with the beats/instrumentals and tunes of Ghana's highlife music.

He released a debut album in 1997 after teasing the public with many singles. The album was called Maka a, maka (If I have said it, I have said it). He featured members of the PLZ, especially Fredi Funkstone as well as Cy Lover. He used his own label Kassa Records to market himself and this has followed through his career.

He went on to release Me na mekae (I was the one who said it) two years later. Shortly after, he followed it up with Mea (I will say it) in 2000 which has been his most popular LP to date. His music inspired a whole generation of hplife artistes and he is regarded the grandfather of hiplife and its first legend.

He released another album in 2004 and called it the Last Show which was supposed to be his final act. This album thrust his fame even further as he won a Kora award for Best African video, the first for any hiplife artiste. Since then, he has released countless singles including Chuku chaka with Beenie man, Peaches with Kweku T and Sway DaSafo as well as a single in which he proclaimed he did not steal anyone's car after an allegation against him surfaced in the media. He also made a track for the Black Stars' 2006 World Cup campaign.

He presently runs Kassa records that has produced other Ghanaian stars like Mensah, Kochoko and the Mobile Phone boys.

Some of his hit songs include Sweetie sweetie, Do that, Plan ben, Mr. Adwenbone, Medebebom, Mobile phone, Mmosuo, Chuku chaka, Nightlife in Accra, Sweetie Sweetie, Agoo, Agoro, My turn to bun, Mereka ama n'ahye wo, Plan ben, Peaches, Music hold my mind, etc
