Ruphc: From medicine to music – Unveiling ‘BAD’

 “I heard the beat, caught the vibe and started to freestyle. It’s basically how I make most of my songs. I don’t write; I just vibe.”

Originating from Delta State, Nigeria, and currently making waves in the UK music arena, Ruphc stands out as a unique fusion artist. ​Infused with Afrobeats and hip-hop rhythms, Ruphc’s latest single, BAD, brilliantly showcases his deep cultural roots and extraordinary artistic skill.

Ruphc’s journey is as unique as his music. As a trained medical doctor who transitioned into a full-time musician, his ​personal s​tory stands as a powerful example of chasing one’s true passion. His venture into the realm of music represents a deep dive into expressing his soul through the universal languages of rhythm and melody.

BAD emerges as a cultural mosaic. With influences from icons like Phyno, Asake, Falz, Odumodublvck, and Shallipopi, Ruphc has crafted a song that’s energetic, vibrant, and irresistibly catchy. Born from a freestyle session, BAD is a showcase of Ruphc’s natural musical flair.

Ruphc brings a linguistic twist to his music. “’Nwoke di kwa bad o’ means ‘the man is bad’ in Igbo,” he explains. But ‘bad’ here transcends the usual; it symbolizes skill, talent, and incredibility. This linguistic blend is a nod to his Igbo roots and his ability to connect with a global audience.

Ruphc’s approach to music is refreshingly spontaneous. This organic process is evident in BAD, where the flow and rhythm feel as natural as breathing. It’s this authenticity that makes his music not just heard but felt, he reveals:  “I heard the beat, caught the vibe and started to freestyle. It’s basically how I make most of my songs. I don’t write; I just vibe.”

BAD stands out for its seamless fusion of Ruphc’s deep-rooted Nigerian heritage with the vibrant beats of contemporary world music. This track serves as an open invitation to immerse in his distinctive sound, a reflection of Ruphc’s dedication to transcending boundaries and connecting audiences across the globe.
