Rising Afropop sensation Darko Vibes described multiple award winning Dancehall and Afropop musician Shatta Wale as someone he looks up too and hopes to collaborate with soon. The artiste also stated that work was ongoing on a new album with his group ‘La Meme Gang’ which featured other artistes from other countries. He made this revelation quite recently from an undisclosed location in Accra during a live video interview with GQ magazine South Africa.
During the online chat with GQ magazine South Africa, the topic of the choice of collaborations arose and Darko Vibes did not hesitate to mention multiple award winning artiste ‘Shatta Wale’ as one of his picks. However, he explained that though Shatta Wale was someone he really wanted to work with, he also did not want to rush a collaboration with him. “Shatta Wale is My father. So, it depends on whatever my father will say. I’m still trying to reach out to Shatta Wale, but because of the Coronavirus crisis, everyone is keeping to their side. So, I’m just waiting for this to pass and then I will pay him a visit at his house. But, that’s my father so I don’t want to rush anything at all so he would get the wrong impression”, he explained.
With his new solo album ‘Kpanlogo’ released a few weeks ago, Darko Vibes stated that him and his group ‘La Meme Gang’ are still working on a new album. “La Meme Gang is working on an album right now. We were camping around the airport for almost a month. We have also been sending verses to our friends in Nigeria, South Africa, Angola and the United States for recordings. So fans of ‘La Meme Gang’ should expect something later in the year”, he said.
La Meme Gang has been nominated for the award of the ‘Best Group of the Year’ at this year’s Vodafone Ghana Music Awards. The group comprises rappers and singer’s each known for a unique style in their musical delivery. The group has an overall image of being very energetic on stage. The group rose to fame after the release of the Hip Hop smash hit which included Darko Vibes called ‘Godzilla’.
