King Promise is a new musician who is hitting the Ghanaian airwaves with scintillating music that not only excites the ears, but also gets the mind thinking while leaving the body with a feel for dancing. If your music library has been feeling drab lately, maybe it is time you considered adding a King Promise track to spice things up.
He might be the new kid on the block, but King Promise has a very captivating voice that sets him apart from other musicians out there. Any time he gets a hold of the microphone, he delivers and leaves his audience very satisfied. Maybe that is why he is working with respected Ghanaian producer Killbeatz.
The skills of the Ghanaian musician, who was born Gregory Promise Bortey Newman, transcends that of the vocal, as he is a prolific talent whose creativity is well expressed in songwriting and stage craft.
Formerly known as Boy Pee, the singer made his mark in the music industry with songs like “So Special” and “No Problem” and worked his way up to where he is now. The soulful young singer has finally released his highly anticipated single, “Thank God,” and he has managed to convince Fuse ODG, the English musician of Ghanaian descent, to be featured on his new track.
He explains how it happened: “Killbeatz and myself were just grooving in the studio. It started off as a love song and he came up with the brilliant idea of “Thank God,” so we switched it up and wrote to it.
“Killbeatz then took a vacation to Miami in the USA where he was blasting the track. He was with Fuse ODG at the time and when Fuse heard it he loved it. The rest, as they say, is history,” said King Promise.
Francis Newman, a businessman, and Angela Quaye, a trader, are parents of the 23-year-old King Promise who attended De Kings Academy for his childhood education in Ghana, before heading to the Nungua Senior High School located in the suburbs of Ghana’s capital city, Accra. His father heavily influence his musical career, as he grew up listening to his dad play an eclectic genre of classic music.
This eclectic musical influence from his dad is reflected in his upcoming album which features a variety of genres from hip hop to gospel, soul to R&B, and a subtle blend of African rhythms that beautifully complement the smooth voice of King Promise. Collaborations on the new album include Scientific, J-Town, Adina, Pappy Kojo, Fuse ODG, and other Ghanaian musicians with international recognition.
King Promise has already been featured on Killbeatz’s yet to be released debut album by way of a teaser single titled “Borkorborkor” that hit the Ghanaian music scene in March 2016. For now “Thank God” with Fuse ODG is doing phenomenal and promises to make him a force to be reckoned with on the 2016 music scene and beyond.
King Promise is signed to YB Records, owned by Yasmin Behzadi and managed by Gervin Ohene Addo, who handles music business for Fuse ODG, R2Bees, Killbeatz, Wizkid and other artists of African descent that have acquired international recognition.
