Derek Andrews Safo (born 5 September 1982) known professionally as Sway (Dasafo) is a UK based Music Artist, Executive Producer and Entrepreneur. Sway was born and raised in North London (Hornsey) by Ghanaian parents Beatrice & Alhaji.
After spending a short time in Ghana during early childhood he returned to England where he developed a fascination for English literature. In later years this fascination combined with his love of music and knack for public speaking inspired the then budding music producer to vocal his own beats until 'a better rapper’ appeared. That 'better rapper’ was coaxed out of him by the encouragement of his peers and crowd reactions at rap battle competitions that he would later enter (and often win).
