A face behind the Dark Suburb, unmasked as Kyei.
The Vodafone Ghana Music Award Unsung acts Dark Suburb over the years since their existence in 2015 has proven why they are tagged Ghana’s first Alternative Rock Band. The group who was popularly known as the “skeletons” was described by BBC as “the Ghanaian Rock group causing a stir in Accra”, was also nominated for the Album of the Year with their debut album in the 2017 AFRIMA. We currently can’t tell the dormancy of the group but here comes Kyei, a guitarist and producer of the group.
Kyei who was born as Ebenezer Kyei Mensah is a singer, producer and a multi-instrumentalist who majors with the guitar. He started the Afroharmony band as a music director, composer, arranger and a guitarist before handing it over to help set up Dark Suburb, a 6-member group consisting of a lead singer, guitarist, bassist, drummer, keyboardist and chief priest in 2015.
As a producer, Kyei produced all the song on Dark Suburb’s AFRIMMA Nominated Album titled “The Start Looks Like The End” which featured the likes of Edem, Wiyaala, E.L and Black Snake Mona from the United States.
Kyei is an Afro-rock, Afro-pop and Afro-soul singer who describes himself as an experimental musician. He is set to release his first single “Gimme One Night” as a solo artiste soon with production from himself under the YNF Records.
