King Promise

Born and bred in Accra, Ghana, Gregory Bortey Promise Newman was enveloped in music from a young age. His ‘music-head’ father inadvertently helped shape his genre and culture-spanning tastes: immersing him in everything from reggae to R&B to boybands to Ghanaian highlife.

To this day, Promise finds himself pulling from and enjoying an incredibly wide range of sounds, both in his own sonics and during his creative process. At the moment, he’s particularly feeling Ghanaian drill, the South African Amapiano scene and collaborating with UK artists like NSG and Headie One for his own music.
