Achiba is a Ghanaian, born in Kumasi (Ashanti Region). He was born to Mr. J. B. Danquah and Madam Akua Fremah. He started his primary and secondary school education in Kumasi.
Finally went to Kumasi Technical Institute (K.T.I.), but he couldn’t finish due to financial obstacles, he stop schooling. Sony Achiba is fair in colour, black hair, black eyes and 5 feet 5 inches tall.
His hobbies are watching films, playing soccer, listen to music and making friends. He started everything by playing active soccer when he was kid along side with dancing. Somewhere along the line he had an accident, and got affected with his left eye.
After the operation, the Doctor advised him not to play football again. He decided to take dancing as a profession, so most at times - Achiba goes out and perform with big time musicians in Ghana like: Rex Omar, George Jahraa, Nana Tuffour, Tommy Wiredu and Frank Mensah Pozo, Randy Noonoo, Are Ama Badu and so on.
He later decided to come out with his own album - in the year 2000 his first album came out. But he later withdrew all the tapes from the market due to technical hitches. Two years later, Sony came out with another hit album, named HIP-DIA, instead of hip-life, as we all know, why? Because he combines Hip-Hop Hi-Life and India style together (i.e. HID-DIA) that makes him the first Ghanaian who have ever come out with this kind of style, in fact, this unique style pushes him into limelight all over Ghana and beyond. The way he performs, the dress and artistic moves makes people call him Indian man.
No wonder the name has become household name in Ghana; mention Achiba’s name and kids started dancing. He was able to sell Two Hundred and Fifty Thousand (250000) copies of tapes in Three (3) months. The album is Nine (9) months old and he has sold about Five Hundred and Fifty Thousand (550000) copies.
Yet Sony Achiba is still in the music industry doing everything possible to push Ghanaian music into international level. Hi-fans Sony is looking forward to hear from you. Those who wonna help him in terms of pieces of advice all helping him to make his dream come true.
