BIOGRAPHY

Barabas and Masta comes together to form TOOFAN. The are the young musical generation of Togo. Their musical style, which they call “the Ogbragada”, is a combination of Rap and urban music.

In 2005, TOOFAN launched their first single, “Epervier Ogbragada”, to support the national football team of Togo. It will be followed in the footsteps of “Epervier 2006”, always in honor of their team who had just qualified for the 2006 World Cup in Germany. The title remains on everyone’s lips and becomes the hymn of all Togolese fans.

In October 2007, they launched the single ‘Parlé, Parlé’, which soon became a real hit, enabling them to afford the luxury of inviting the Magic System to their concert on December 25, 2007 In a Palais des Congrès of Lomé archi filled.

TOOFAN is undoubtedly one of the most promising groups on the African continent. The Ambassadors of Togolese music break the nail at the end of 2008, with “Attaquant”. The single that once again makes a hit in the charts, and gives them a good visibility on many French music channels.
