KILLBEATZ

Dubbed Ghana’s best producer, Killbeatz is also regarded as one of the best producers in Africa, when it comes to afro beats. A bona-fide musical genius, he has produced music for A-list artistes from across the globe, among them Ed Sheeran, Fuse ODG, Sarkodie, R2Bees and WizKid. He makes his debut on Coke Studio Africa 2017, where he is producing superstar collaborations, including Busiswa (South Africa), Slapdee (Zambia), Youssoupha (Congo) and Yemi Alade (Nigeria).

A lot of KIllbeatz’s productions have received recognition, either as singles or for his contribution to the careers of various artists. For instance - R2Bees, whom he is a part of, received a BET nomination for Best International Act (Africa) in 2013. He collaborated with Fuse ODG on the hit singles Antenna, Azonto and Badder than Bad, causing them to peak at the UK Singles Chart. Antenna was awarded Best African Act at the MOBO Award's 18th Anniversary as well as four awards (Best Music Video, Best Single, Best Artiste and Best Collaboration) at the Urban Music Awards and Afro Pop Song of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards.

In early 2017, Killbeatz received a production credit on Grammy-award winner Ed Sheeran’s “Divide” album. Once again, he claimed the Best Producer gong at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, solidifying his prominence as one of the best Afrobeat producers in the world. His work has also seen him recognized as one of the best producers in Africa by Channel O in 2013 and Producer of the Year at the Bass Awards Ghana (2015). The multi-talented artiste released his first official single titled Bokor Bokor featuring Fuse ODG and Mugeez of R2bees in 2016. Killbeatz has worked with Efya, Tiffany, Wande Coal, Nana Boroo and Coke Studio Africa international acts such as Wyclef Jean and Sean Paul.

Killbeatz started his trade as an instrumentalist in church where he played both the drums and piano. Under the direction of his parents who were elders in the church, Killbeatz developed into a prolific musician. He got his engineering antics from a studio called “I3” in Tema back in 1999. His first track was for a group in his neighborhood called Camp Yard, a name they would later change to R2bees. Together they have taken over the Ghanaian music scene. Killbeatz is currently working on his upcoming debut album set to be released this year.
