In 2017 Slim Kofi arrives in the Netherlands with only one wish: to make his dream of musician come true. As a result, he signs a deal with Avalon Music in 2017, after FLEXMUSIC in 2018, an affiliate of Sony Music Denmark, and now he’s gone independent.
Kofi distinguishes himself with his self-proclaimed “Afrocan Sound”, where he makes a blend of Ghanaian, Moroccan and Western influences.
This tropical vibe echoes even more in all his releases, with song such as Tingele produced by SRNO hitting 1.3million streams on Spotify, Lean Back with MC Rudy Jones, Wata Bam Bam ft. Ice Prince, the 9weeks of Kofi produced by Dustin Lenji in which he released 1 song per week during 9 consecutive weeks and consequently was pronounced artist of the week on FunX radio; and many more releases.
Slim Kofi’s determination, energy and positivity can also be felt in his shows. The audience can always be found on the dance floor with a smile and a swing! Opening major acts such as 50 cent in Ahoy (Rotterdam) & Royal Arena (Copenhaguen) and Wizkid, Timaya & many more!
As regards to his latest release, Colo for You prod. Mitchell Yard, (Released last Friday 3rd of April) the concept is the following:
– In this moment of the whole world self-Quarantining amidst the crisis, many lovers are apart from each other. “Colo for You” translated from Ghanaian pidgin English means “Crazy for You”. This song is dedicated to everyone missing their friends and most importantly significant love partners.
