His most recent project, #ThoughtJourney, is a fusion of traditional Ewe music, soul, and hip-hop from the modern African male consciousness that has been hailed by Afropop Worldwide, Pulse, and Up Nairobi, among others. He has also performed on international stages including the HIFA Festival in Zimbabwe and the Arbeitsamt Sommerfest in Berlin. He recently completed a month long plus art residency in Morocco where he performed at the Alhaouz Festival.

On the Saturday, 20th October 8pm, he will be performing live at Alliance Francaise Accra and will be supported by the funky Ghanaian trio Senku band. Also performing will be the Songstress Yaaba ‘Girl with the Golden Voice’ and Ghana’s gifted trumpeter and saxophonist Peter Somuah.
