New Music: Mike Akox

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I believe the next swathe of musical talent to hit the global mainstream will emerge from Africa. And with that being said, Mike Akox is a perfect example of an artist you should keep an eye out for.

This Ghanaian-born musician has spent the last fifteen years in Australia, and has now returned home to Accra and is releasing some of the finest Afro-Beat that I have heard in quite some time.

“Music is for the soul. I recorded this song as a one take record as I do with all my records. May it move you. Feel it spiritually and let’s touch the world with music.”

Talking about the video, he says:

“This film was shot all on one take from my gate through out my morning walk path. Nobody had an idea. My visuals creator ‘Manic’ who also shot this Video also had no idea till that morning. Every soul in this had no idea just pure love. In this video are some kids I have putting in school, clothed and fed as part of my humanitarian works I’m doing with my Music. Music is the Gift and the purpose is to serve the world. Through my given talents as an artist i will touch and heal the world.”
