He is Edward George Wright, hailed from Christian parents in the Congo Town community in Freetown. The name Kontri Boss came about through his popularity in the entertainment industry with collaborations and respect he earned from his peers for his exceptional talent in writing and producing good music. He started music whilst in JSS1, where he most times had to perform in his Church. He recorded his first song in 2003, called “Be My Wife”, and later released “Broken Promises” which earned him recognition and popularity across the country. In 2008, he won the KALBOX National Singing Competition and was awarded Le3,000,000 as star prize and a record deal.
At the formative stages of his career around 2009, he was part of a Music Band comprising four colleagues called 441 which was formed as result of an exceptional performance they displayed at an event held at the National Stadium in Freetown. They were mentored and advised by the CEO of LYNX STUDIO at the time, who coined the name 441.
Early 2019, Kontri Boss travelled to Ghana for exposure and more opportunities to enhance his music career, where he decided to pursue a solo career, interacted with top notch producers and recorded the song E DON TAE featuring a former band mate KONTOFILI. The visuals for this song was shot and edited in Ghana.
He got so many collaborations and has written and produced songs for most of the County’s biggest names earning him the recognition and name “KONTRI BOSS”.
