Watch Darkovibes & Runtown's New Video For 'Mike Tyson'

"Mike Tyson is a song for champions, pathfinders and trail blazers," Darkovibes' team says of the single and Accra-shot video.

A few months ago, Ghanaian artist and La Meme Gang member Darkovibes connected with Nigeria's Runtown for "Mike Tyson."

That addictive single now gets a new music video, directed by Zed, which follows both artists across Accra's High street and other city locations.

"Mike Tyson is a song for champions, pathfinders and trail blazers," a statement from Darkovibes' team reads. "It is for those who stand against popular opinions and make it. Runtown... touches on developmental issues in Nigeria. He also speaks on being bold in the face of institutional oppositions and signs out with a badman proclamation."


Darkovibes was one of our 6 Ghanaian Artists to Watch in 2019, and he's surely delivered this year.

Late last year, the Ghanaian collective La Meme Gang—of which Darkovibes is a member—shared their sophomore tape, Linksters, which showcased an exceptional blend of afrobeats and trap. More recently, La Meme Gang collaborated with Kuami Eugene on "This Year," and collective member $pacely has dropped Fine$e or Be Fine$ed.

Watch the new music video for Darkovibes and Runtown's "Mike Tyson" below.
