GOLD COAST HAZE w/ BILS RAYOE

What a blast we had at last month’s Talk Party! We switched up venues and headed over to The Lexington, the rock-swag-swank shindig that’s quickly become a weekly live music haven in Accra. Loads of folk came out to chill with Tawiah – we had a listening party for her new mixtape album, FREEDOMdrop [before its release this Spring] and premiered the video for her third single, “Faces” [directed by Mantse Aryeequaye, REDD Kat Pictures].

We were stoked when Tawiah agreed to one fan’s request to give an impromptu performance. She swiftly grabbed her guitar and cheerfully obliged. Afterwards, Kobby Graham and DJ K3V kept us in an azonto tizzy on the dance floor into the AM.
