Darkoo & Tion Wayne – Shayo Video
Nigerian-born and London-raised, Darkoo’s love for music was nourished within her family home where the sounds of 9ice and D’banj, alongside Fela Kuti and Ebenezer Obey could be heard resonating around the house.
In 2019 Darkoo released her stand-out track, ‘Gangsta’ featuring fellow Londoner and rapper One Acen.
Featuring her signature deep husky vocals, the track shot the teenager to fame, quickly becoming a TikTok favourite and was crowned the biggest Afrobeat Song of 2020 and earning her three MOBO nominations.
At just 19, the possibilities for Darkoo seem endless and though the pandemic has no doubt delayed her plans for a headline show her career is already in full motion while fans eagerly await her first EP that she’s currently working on.
