Homegrown within the shores of Ghana is Afrosoul singer Quayba pronounced "kway-ba”. Having fallen in love with music at the precious age of four she has gone on to pursue a solo career gradually garnering a devout following in the African music space and even beyond. Quayba holds a first degree in biological science from the University of Cape Coast, and a masters degree from University of Legon-Centre for International Affairs & Diplomacy yet she maintains a strong love for performing and writing music. She has gracefully shared the stage with household names such as Sena Dagadu, King Promise, Berima Amo, Worlasi, Irene Logan amongst many others. With a voice that is best described as beautiful, soulful and honest she is bound to transport you to a place of love, life and laughter themes that are very prominent in her music.
In 2018, Quayba released her debut music project, titled "Nkuro: Gh To The World" to raving reviews and much acclaim. The six-track EP which pays homage to her childhood memories and Ghanaian pop culture fuses a plethora of sounds from highlife to afropop to funk and even spots of jazz, into one uniquely-styled masterpiece she calls "Contemporary Highlife". In August 2020, Quayba released Wonder Woman, a live recorded single celebrating the legacy of womanhood and how it’s passed on from mother to mother.
Quayba is currently working on her live recorded Visual EP with her new Afrosoul band. This current project I’m working on is dear to me because Im paying respect to my ethnic roots yet pushing the envelope by incorporating new sounds, and iI cant wait to share it with you.
