He might be the new kid on the block, but King Promise, born Gregory Promise Bortey Newman, has a captivating voice that sets him apart from other musicians. His work with legendary Ghanaian producer Killbeatz delivers and his live performances leave his audiences very satisfied.

King Promise is a prolific talent whose creativity is well expressed in his song writing and stagecraft.

Formerly known as Boy Pee, the singer made his mark in the music industry with songs like “So Special” and “No Problem” and worked his way up to where he is now.

The soulful, young singer has finally released his highly anticipated single, “Thank God.” King Promise has managed to convince Fuse ODG, the English musician of Ghanaian descent, to feature on his new track.

King Promise explains how it happened: “Killbeatz and myself were just grooving in the studio. It started off as a love song and he came up with the brilliant idea of “Thank God” so we switched it up and wrote to it. Killbeatz took a vacation to Miami in the United States. He was with Fuse ODG at the time and he started blasting the track. When Fuse heard it he loved it, the rest as they say, ‘is history.’”

Francis Newman, a businessman, and Angela Quaye, a trader, are parents of the 23 year-old King Promise who attended De Kings Academy for his childhood education in Ghana before heading to the Nungua Senior High School located in the suburbs of Ghana’s capital city, Accra. His father was a heavy influence on his musical career as he grew up listening to his dad play an eclectic genre of classic music.

This eclectic musical influence is reflected in his upcoming album which features a variety of genres from hip-hop to gospel, soul to R&B, and a subtle blend of African rhythms that beautifully complements the smooth voice of King Promise. Collaborations on the new album include Scientific, J-Town, Adina, Pappy Kojo, Fuse ODG, and other Ghanaian musicians with international recognition.

King Promise has already been featured on Killbeatz’s yet to be released debut album by way of a teaser single titled “Borkorborkor” that hit the Ghanaian music scene in March 2016. “Thank God” featuring Fuse ODG promises to make him a force to be reckoned with on the 2016 music scene and beyond.

King Promise is signed to YB Records owned by Yasmin Behzadi and managed by Gervin Ohene Addo who handles music business for Fuse ODG, R2Bees, Killbeatz, Wizkid and other artistes of African descent that have acquired international recognition.
