Ghanaian/South African/Namibian rapper unveils his new song.
“No Shade” is collaborative effort between Kofie Carter and Zambian artist, B Chillz, who recorded his vocals in Cape Town, South Africa. The single is a highly-anticipated hip-hop record shedding light on the spoils of being a rising star and showcasing Kofie Carter’s rapping dexterity. 21-year old Kofie Carter is a self taught drummer, piano, saxophone, guitar and Bass guitarist. Carter fuses his African influence with Western sounds to create a unique mix of afro-beat, afro-pop, hip hop, trap and hip-life. Crashing the Philadelphia scene with his LA lifestyle, he’s best known for wearing his signature yellow hoodie and you can always find best friend and 76ers player, Ben Simmons, by his side.
Born Hackman Kofi Owusu-Agyemang II, Kofie Carter is an up and coming musician from Ghana, currently residing in Philadelphia, PA. Son of a Ghanaian father and a half South African / Namibian mother, and being raised mostly in Zambia, Kofie Carter identifies distinctly as an African.
We can soon expect his debut single, ‘Get Down’ and highly anticipated 7 song EP, called ‘7%’ in 2019. Africa meets America in 7% as the project is a fusion of traditional African beats with modern western sounds and hip-hop influence.
