Produced by Craig Sellar, Kingsley combines an array of infectious R&B, Afropop, and hi-life influenced sounds, to narrate the concept of “Drunk On you” a dynamic, catchy melodic track, which he hopes will make people get up on their feet and dance. 

With years of experience in the industry, and having been exposed to a wide range of musical influences from a young age, like Bob Marley, Usher, and Fela Kuti and Daddy lumba, he has developed an ability to compound different sounds, melodies and lyrics to produce some quality songs.

Credited and working, with the likes of Cheryl Cole, Peter Andre, Shift Key, Jason Derulo, Ella Eyre to name a few, Kingsley as the years went by, connected with other musicians, developing his craft and releasing music.

He worked closely with the current hit-maker Grades, to develop his songwriting skills and was eventually spotted by the renowned songwriter Wayne Hector, who recognised his potential as a songwriter. This propelled him to sign a publishing deal with Warner Chappell, mentored by Wayne Hector who became his protege for three years, mastering and developing his songwriting craft, simultaneously enhancing his vocal abilities also.

 

Speaking on the inspiration behind “Drunk on you” Kingsley says “I’d like to think I’m bringing a different flavour and a new sound to the Afrobeats scene, one that has an eclectic sound and r&b/pop/ hi-life influences. Although the journey of songwriting has been a great learning curve, I am ready to embark on my solo career that takes me back to my roots.”

 

Arriving in the UK, at the age of 13 from Ghana, he was musically introduced to new genres like Garage, Grime, UK Pop and Rnb music, which he fell in love with. Feeling inspired, he indulged in some singing classes, with other up and coming artists at the time like Nao, in Walthamstow East London.

 

With no intentions of slowing down, Kingsley unveils ‘Drunk On You’ as a testimony of him getting started on leaving a striking impact on the U.K. Afropop scene.
