Henok – That Fucking Guy

Henok Achido grew up in a musical home in the Southern parts of Sweden, purchasing his first vinyl with his weekly allowance at the age of 8. At the age of 17, Henok featured on number one hit single and grammy nominated song ‘Mina Hundar’ by Swedish rapgroup Fattaru, which resulted in numerous performances in most Scandinavia countries but although the outcome and response for Henok was massive, he still didnot feel satisfied with the mindstate and lacked maturity and the preparation to be the complete musician. After, Mina Hundar, Henok dropped out of highschool and moved to Stockholm to continue record and feature songs but still didnot feel that his timing was right. Late 05 and after creating several high quality songs and being mostly pushed by his younger brother to create music, he decided to take the big step in to the light of music. Today, Henok Achido is known for being a bilingual artist plus the combination of unique flow, determination, cockiness & inventive word play describes Henoks’ main characteristics best.
