Biography

Kyekyeku is seen as a new generation of young lively Ghanaian musicians that is combining musical traditions from roots Palmwine (A style of Ghanaian folk) Hilife and Afrobeat; performing live in new and exciting sounds. His music looks more towards expressing Ghana and Africa through a sound aesthetic that embodies vintage Africa.

The young Ghanaian musician has collaborated with world-renowned musicians including Koo Nimo (GH), Peter White (UK/Jazz), Pat Thomas(GH), Ambolley(GH) Thais Morel (Brazil), Mayra Andrade (Cape Verde), Blick Bassy (Cameroun) etc.

Described by CNN as 'Wizard of the Guitar' Kyekyeku carries a sound draped in silky acoustic guitars, intricate percussive grooves and lush horns,  locked between folk and a throbbing urban Highlife beat.

Kyekyeku performs with his band ‘’5 DAYS NO LIGHT-OFF” named after Ghana’s power crises manifest often through power outages or ‘light-off.’ With the five-man band, kyekyeku sings and performs tunes that reflect on social commentary, love, religion, nature etc. and offers copious amounts of fun and dancing.
