Hip life sensation, Theophilus Tagoe, popularly known by many names including Castro, Castro under fire and Castro the Destroyer graced the entertainment scene with many hit songs.
The musician who had worked very hard to gain recognition in the music industry in Ghana is believed to have started a tough journey when he decided to venture into singing.
One of his very early music videos shot in his career has been spotted by YEN.com.gh and it leaves nothing but the spirit of inspiration.
The music video for his popular, “Sradenam” song showed a relatively young Castro who was also not as big and arguably “good looking” like he had come to be known to be.
The video showed his humble beginnings in the world of music and how he persevered to become a household sensation with his songs.
Prior to his disappearance on July 6, 2014, the musician had produced many hit songs and had partnered with many great artistes in the country and beyond. Some of the artistes that joined Castro to produced awesome tracks were Ghana’s fastest rapper, Sarkodie in “Adonai” and Captain of the Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan in “Ghana Girls”.
The award-winning artiste came unto the Ghanaian music scene with his “Damages” album which was an instant hit and he blew the market right open with how popular some of the songs on the album had become including “Sradenam”.
Castro was born to Mr. and Mrs. Tagoe. He basically resided in Takoradi most of his childhood life but is currently staying in Accra because of his musical career. Castro had his elementary and J.S.S school at All Saint Anglican Primary and J.S.S in Takoradi.
He was known to be very religious and worshipped with other believers at the Efiakuma Pentecost Church in Takoradi. He started rapping when he was in J.S.S and his parents were very influential in this by giving him money for his demos and the needed advice to become the best.
