The Album features Blue Lab Beats, Ghetto Boy, Mr Eazi, Salif Keita, Burna Boy, others.

About GB

The ‘Prince of the Afrobeats’ as he’s passionately referred to has been on a steady climb since the release of his first EP, ‘Anointed’ in 2017. 

With numerous hits such as ‘Under Lover’ (2017) and ‘For The Luv’ ft. Naira Marley (2018) already under his belt, it is clear that the Hackney-born artist is rapidly rising through the ranks and slowly shaping up to be one of the genre’s new frontrunners. 

His first release in 2017, ‘Under Lover’ became a viral sensation that propelled him to prominence, sparking a global dance routine. Both the success of ‘Under Lover’ and his insatiable desire for success has taken GB all over the world, from headlining a show in Germany, performing with Mr Eazi in Sweden and a tour around Europe at the end of 2018. 

Ghetto Boy resides both in London and Ghana, an important move for his future as a global star whose focus lies on his fans and on showcasing his culture and legacy to his audience in its purest form.
