Emmanuel Samini Aka Batman who hails from Wa in the upper West Region was born in 1981 to Mr G.A Samini and Theresa Nusala.
He had his basic and primary education at Holy Family Basic School and then continued at St Magaraet Mary Sec school, Dansoman for his secondary education.
He has lived in Dansoman since he was 9 years and that was when he realised the singing potential in himself. And now with just 2 years in the Music industry in Ghana he won the admiration of most music critics in Ghana.
With just one album to his credit, the name “Batman” is one of the commonest keyword on the lips of many music fans in Ghana. His songs are sung by almost every Ghanaian regardless of their position in society.
He has featured close to 50 tracks with other musicians (both released and unreleased).Batman has performed outside Ghana in countries like canada, UK, Holland and Italy. He performed with a live band and he has since being rated one of the best young Ghanaian musician. He just hosted the finals of the Nescafe African Revelations in Ghana.
He has a whole “signature tune” to himself “KPOOI”. Asked what the meaning of 'Kpooi' is, Batman says its a gunshot sound and that is his signal. It comes with every composition that he does. The gunshot is meant for all the back bitters. “We kill them dead”. Batman who keeps dread locks says he just wants to portray the African in him.” Before the white man brought a comb, there was dread. Africa has gone through a lot of changes and it has become very difficult for us to portray the real African in us.”, He says.
Recording his tracks, Batman does most of his tracks at Ashanti International Studios i.e. with Nana King and Kwame 'G'. He also works with Roland of Best Brain Digital studios.
His debut album, Linda, was an instant success. It won him two Ghana Music Awards for Hiplife Artist of the Year and New Hiplife Artist of the Year. In 2006, he followed suit with his sophomore album, Samini, which can boast of smash hits like Odo. The self-titled album was to set the stage for his gradual emergence as Samini, an identity that would portray him as an authentic African artist.
On December 22nd, 2006 (his 25th Birthday), Batman officially changed his name to Samini. Today, Samini can pride himself as a consummate musician with several Ghana Music Awards including Best Artiste of 2007, and a Music of Black Origin (MOBO) Award. He also won the 2008 Hiphop World Award for Best African Artist in Nigeria.
