Ghanaian afropop singer and songwriter Camidoh has shared a remarkable summer anthem “Taxi Man.”
Jointly produced by the UK’s renowned Toddla T and award-winning Ghanaian maestro, Streetbeatz, “Taxi Man” features guest verses from Vybz Kartel, the iconic figure in Jamaican dancehall; the UK’s rising star, Miss LaFamilia; and the award-winning DJ and producer, DJ Lara Fraser, who bring their unique and unrivaled performance style to the song.
Sonically, “Taxi Man” boasts a unique dancehall and afrobeats fusion, characterized by the Ghanaian BET-award Afropop nominee‘s signature R&B and afrobeats rhythms.
The song is accompanied with a beautiful portrait-style music video directed by Amane Akbaraly. The video was shot in the famed Zap Studios in London’s Camberwell and features Camidoh, Miss LaFamilia, and DJ Lara Fraser.
Camidoh has been on a roll, getting nominations for the BET Awards, AFRIMA, and The Headies, as well as praise for his debut EP L.I.T.A. He came onto the Ghanaian music industry in 2018 after signing to the Grind Don’t Stop (GDS) independent label and releasing his first track, “For My Lover.”
The single and its remix set a buzz around him as the next big thing leading to his first project, Contigency Plan (CP) – a six-track EP that had rave reviews.
However, Camidoh’s big breakthrough came in December when he released the viral hit single, “Sugarcane”.
The song shot Camidoh to stardom and when the chart topping “Sugarcane” remix featuring King Promise, Mayorkun and Darkoo dropped in April 2022, Camidoh became one of the most sought-after African stars in the year.
