(New York, NY – March 20, 2020) – Trailblazing Afrobeats artist Darkovibes and fellow Ghanian singer-songwriter King Promise have reunited for the “Inna Song (Gin & Juice)” music video directed by Yaw Skyface.
Set in a lively bar, the vibrant visual finds Darkovibes and King Promise winning over an enthusiastic crowd, and stylistically infuses elements of both the past as well as Afrofuturism. With eye-popping colors and scenery, the visual is the latest off Darkovibes’ highly anticipated debut solo album Kpanlogo that also features the likes of Wizkid, Mr. Eazi, Kwesi Arthur, and Joey B.

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. Most recently, The FADER recognized him 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 Magazine citing him as “the muse for this progression.”
The acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer has garnered regional success with singles like “Tomorrow” and “Stay Woke” 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 – into a contemporary sound has earned him co-signs from some of Africa’s most sought after artists, including WizKid, Mr Eazi, R2bees, and Stonebwoy.
As he preps to release his debut solo album Kpanlogo next month, Darkovibes is fusing his tried-and-tested sound with experimental approaches that will continue to push the envelope of Afrobeats music.
