AFRONOIRE Says: Listen to Akua Konamah's 'Consume Me' EP
Akua Konamah is a young - breakthrough musical phenomenon, with a unique tone, captivating sound and raw talent.
Now known as one of the UK’s leading ladies in acoustic music, Akua has recently released her highly anticipated EP 'Consume Me'. This comes with huge support and an exclusive premiere of her lead single “Only U” (my absolute favourite track!) from BBC Introducing’s Gary Crowley. Her EP follows a progressive year of live performances across the country, as well as an acclaimed viral success though her acoustic mash-ups of two of 2014’s UK hit tracks, Krept & Konan’s ‘Don’t waste my time’ and Meridian Dan’s ‘German Whip’.
Akua recently featured on artist Rockizm - new single “High” taken from the Rockizm Album due to be released later this month on 26th October. “High” which features Akua, Joe Grind & Kyze; is the first advanced track from the Rockizm Album, and is a fix of Akua’s original track - also produced by Rockizm and included on her EP. Akua’s talented vocals adds a cool edge to the distinctive Dub & Bass Drum beat (The Funkii Refix), giving the track all the elements of a Club & Radio smash.
Influenced by the likes of Alicia Keys, Sade, Ashanti and Estelle, 21 year old Akua has developed a unique sound, combining the raw sound of her guitar with a blend of sultry vocals. I, for sure cannot wait to see what she does next!
