King Promise’s birthday performance on August 16 at Bloombar will go down in history as a night to remember for lovers of his craft and personality.
The Ghanaian Afrobeats and highlife singer-songwriter celebrated his birthday at the Bloom bar. Videos from the party show it was just like a mini-concert as King Promise took to the stage to perform some of his hit songs.
Among the notable faces spotted at the party were Sarkodie, Nigerian singer Mr Eazi, and France Ambassador Anne Sophie Avé, among others.
He delivered classic smash hits from his recently released ‘5 Star’ album amongst other hit songs.
King Promise’s 5 Star has been highly anticipated especially after his 2019 debut ‘As Promised,’ an album which saw him share tracks with global stars, Wizkid & Sarkodie was labelled Ghana’s most streamed album of all time. With the release of 5 Star, Promise is presented as a well-honed talent exuding pure excellence and the highest standard possible across 14 tracks.
His best project yet, King Promise lives up to his reputation as Ghana’s cultural connector throughout the diaspora globally with tracks from Headie One and WSTRN (UK), Frenna (Amsterdam), Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa (USA), Omah Lay and Patoranking (Nigeria) and Bisa Kdei (Ghana).
Since the release of the first single “Slow Down” last year and subsequent tracks “Bad ‘N’ Rude ft. WSTRN”, “Chop Life ft. Patronaking”, “Ring My Line ft. Headie One” and the most recent “Ginger”, King Promise’s mellow yet danceable blend of Afrobeats, Highlife and R&B have caught the attention of key tastemakers in music.
The project’s lead single “Ten Toes” which was shot in Amsterdam, featuring Promise and Omah Lay cruising around the city in a BMW convertible interspersed with performance shots, gorgeous women and stylish dancers – providing a fast-paced snapshot of the five-star lifestyle of this global artist.
Promise is fast establishing himself as one of the most exciting African artists breaking out of the continent this year. With his irresistible signature crooner lyrics and palpably warm and danceable energy, King Promise is somewhat of a hidden gem outside of West Africa. He has performed at Oh My Festival and Afronation this year, and still has plans to go on tour soon.
