In June 2018, LOR recorded her debut single titled “Only You” produced at the UVSL Live Studios in Accra by legendary sound engineer Hubert Kofi Anti (Ubeatz). The song was released on 3rd August, 2018 (her 23rd birthday), & that was the beginning of her journey as a professional musician.
Early Life, Education & Work
Born on 3rd August, 1995 to Mrs. Regina Adjetey & Mr. Henry Adjetey Badu, LOR is the third born of her parents with two siblings (an elderly sister & brother) whom she loves dearly. Growing up as a child, LOR was keen on becoming a media & languages expert.
LOR had her primary & Junior High School (JHS) education at Annemarie International School (Teshie). She continued to Ghanata Senior High School in Dodowa to study General Arts & also attended Alliance Française in Accra, where she took specialized courses in French.

While at GIJ, she was an intern producer of the Drive Express program at Uniiq FM & later with Business Day Newspaper as a reporter.

LOR speaks English, French, Twi & Ga.

LOR found her passion for music when she fell in love with singing & musical instruments while functioning as a vibrant choir member & worship leader at her local church (The Apostolic Church Ghana, Teshie North Assembly).
Nevertheless, she didn’t consider becoming a professional musician until she was connected with BEKOFI Music Hub –a music marketing outlet of the Ghanaian creative firm BEKOFI who later signed her in 2017 as their first in-house recording artiste. In the same year, she developed a drive to play the acoustic guitar and begun taking lessons to advance her skill.
Her deepest desire is to touch lives with the love of God through her ministry, to reach out to the lost & strengthen those already in the Christian faith.
