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 eclectic album that fuses elements of Ghanaian Afrobeat with hip-hop, rap, and trap, and features collaborations with several of Africa’s finest musicians including Runtown​, Mr Eazi​, ​King Promise​,​ Kwesi Arthur​, ​Joey B​, ​Peruzzi, ​and ​Mugeez​.

On the inspiration behind his debut studio album, Darkovibes shares​, “I chose the album title ​Kpanlogo because it not only reflects my heritage as a Ghanaian artist, but it also reflects the mode of the album and myself.

I reference culture and movement, but with a fresh twist – just like when urban youth started doing the Kpanlogo dance in the 1960s – it’s about the future, and the past simultaneously.”
