Afrobeat starboy Singer, Rapper, Music Writer & Producer, born Raphael Kofi Attachie , known in the music circles as Camidoh, has said, the name Camidoh, his showbiz identity was inspired by his own mother, who was at that time flanking it as her nickname.
According to the Maria crooner, the name is now his original name being registered in the registrar General’s department office as one of his documented names.
Explaining how the name came about in an interview with Nana Effah on Republic FM’s Artiste Profile on Friday, January 21, 2022, he said,
“It’s my name as well but basically it’s a name I got from my mom. It was my mom’s nickname back then but I loved it and so I spoke to my mom about it, we prayed over it and we went through all the processes to register it as my name” he said.
Touching on what it simply means, the sugarcane singer said, the name Camidoh simply means “Blessings”.
Camidoh grew up in Ho (Volta regional capital) and later moved to Accra (capital of Ghana) to chase his musical ambitions.
He is the first of three and was raised by a single parent: his mum – Christiana Dzifa Fudjoe, an economics teacher in Ola Senior High School.
Camidoh attended Nileem preparatory school complex from 1999 to 2004, then moved to Rijnbeek catholic school complex from 2005 to 2008 where he had his junior high education.
He furthered to Bishop Herman College from 2008 to 2012 for senior high education where he read general arts and topped it up with a Bachelor of Science in marketing between 2013 and 2017 at the University of Professional Studies.
Camidoh developed the love for music around the age of 12 years when he was about entering junior high school. He first started listening and learning songs of Akon because his ‘lonely’ track had really gotten to him.
Fast forward Camidoh met an equally talented fellow whom he jelled very well with in high school and decided to merge to become a group called Belce.
The group was signed and operated as a professional music duo under Myco Music from December 2008, then moved to 3fs Productions in April 2016 until 24 December 2017 when Belce decided to go solo leading to the termination of the contract.
He is out with a new smart hit Sugarcane which is receiving massive airplay across the country.
