Trailblazing Ghanaian Afrobeats artist Darkovibes has unveiled his highly anticipated debut solo album “Kpanlogo” available now across all digital streaming platforms via The Orchard. The album features collaborations with several of Africa’s finest musicians including Runtown, Mr Eazi, King Promise, Kwesi Arthur, Joey B, Peruzzi, and Mugeez.
“Kpanlogo” features a series of extraordinary critically acclaimed singles, including “Different,” “Stay Woke” (ft. Stonebwoy), “Come My Way” (ft. Mr Eazi) and “Inna Song (Gin & Lime)” with King Promise, all of which are joined by companion videos streaming now via Darkovibes’ official YouTube channel HERE.
As the musical landscape in Ghana continues to shift, there are few standouts like Darkovibes who are poised to take over for the next generation. In a widespread editorial feature entitled “Ghana Is Now,” The FADER recognized the genre bending artist as, “revolutionizing the way we see life in Ghana, helping to bridge the representation gap between Africa and the rest of the world” with Notion citing him as “the muse for this progression.”
The singer, songwriter, producer, and style tastemaker has been an integral player in the growing success of La Même Gang, a collective of budding superstars based in Ghana who are ushering the new wave of alternative Afrobeats that includes Darkovibes, $pacely, Kiddblack, RJZ, Kwaku BS and Nxwrth. Darkovibes’ music defies genre and his effortless ability to coalesce many languages – including English, Pidgin, Ga, and Twi – reflects the new wave of African music not bound by national or continental borders. This contemporary sound has earned him co-signs from some of Africa ‘s most sought after artists, including WizKid, Mr Eazi, R2bees, and Stonebwoy.
