Early & Family Life
Foley hails from Sekondi-Takoradi in the Western Region. He is the youngest of three children.
Foley attended Bishop Bowers Junior Secondary School from 1989 to 1998, and then Achimota School (Visual Arts) from 1999 to 2001. He grew up in many different communities, which influenced his creativity. To further his knowledge of music, he decided to study sound engineering with the legendary Ghanaian music producer Hammer at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
He married Jossie in December 2014.
Foley started a network for young people who had a burning desire to become great achievers. He called it 2131, with the tagline, "Lead, Challenge or Just Forget It". He later joined Y FM, rising through the ranks to become the General Manager of the station in 2011. Foley is the co-host of Live Breakfast Club, the morning show on LIVE 91.9 FM, where he also doubles as the Business Manager. He is now the host of Prime Morning, a morning show aired on Joy Prime
As a student of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Foley started a network called 2131 with the tagline "Lead, Challenge or Just Forget It". It was his way of committing to networking with like-minded individuals and made him develop a mindset that encouraged him to continually work hard at being successful. Foley set up his first company, The Radio Advertising People (T.R.A.P), which specialized in recording radio commercials. It was born out of an idea to train himself as a sound engineer, and also to understand the power behind a speech. He trained himself in the art of voice-overs advertising and has become of the most sought after voice-over artist. He believes in “living an exemplary lifestyle to inspire young men and women out there” who are a part of his growing fan base. The T.R.A.P experience presented him with an opportunity to join leading entertainment television channel, 4StyeTV, as a host in its early days – a position he still holds.
