​Watch Kuvie's New Video For 'Energy' Featuring RJZ & B4Bonah

Love, music and art blend in the Ghanaian beatmaker's lush visual for "Energy."

Kuvie is the producer defining the new age of Ghanaian music.

The talented beatmaker is at the forefront of the new school in Ghana when it comes to production. Featuring a unique take on afrobeats, Kuvie continues to craft hit songs for mainstream acts as well as emerging acts in Accra's vibrant music scene.

In May he dropped his debut album, Gruvie Vol.1, which has to be one of the best projects out this year.

Love, music and art blend in Kuvie's new visuals for "Energy," a dreamy track from his LP which features B4bonah and La Meme Gang member RJZ.


"Kuvie, B4bonah and RJZ are depicted in a tropical paradise where they create their art by the inspiration of their lovers. This hyperbole of their daily lives leaves us the viewers desiring for a similar utopia where love, art and music co-exist harmoniously," he describes in an email.

Check out the music video for "Energy" by Kuvie featuring B4bonah and RJZ below.
