Kendrick Lamar Partners Surf Ghana To Build A Recording Studio In Ghana

Ghana’s creator community “SurfGhana” together with Spotify, pglang and Kendrick Lamar has finally fulfilled the nation’s promises as part of their initiative to establish a community recording studio for the young and talented youth in Accra

Surf Ghana is a concerted group that integrates extreme sports like skateboarding and surfing as a driver for youth development and also creates a platform for local artists to promote positive values like tolerance, respect, peace, and the celebration of African creativity.

‘VIBRATE. We* have been working on this project for several months along with some incredible individuals and organisations. Countless hours of brainstorming has led us to this very moment which we have patiently been waiting for. Together with our partners at @Spotify and @pglang we are excited to finally announce the opening of Accra’s first community recording studio and music business program, Vibrate on Friday, October 14, 2022.
Come experience an evening of community and conversation, with music performances by the incredible @asi_renie and Lagos Nigeria’s very own @yinkabernie’ .

The 2-year-long alliance comes in to aid Surf Ghana in establishing a community recording studio and providing value-added services, including mentorship, music production, development, and business education programs geared toward creators. In league with the company, the partnership also supports all-inclusive creative quarters, which include artists and producers.

The project hopes to empower and strengthen the next generation of creatives.

According to the founder of Surf Ghana Sandy Alibo, “Rather than traditional learning, Vibrate Studio seeks to empower creatives through community building and mentorship. With the facility located at the Freedom Skatepark, the Surf Ghana collective seeks to launch a workstation for young creatives in the heart of the city of Accra. Spotify partnering with us will go a long way towards helping us fulfil our vision of being an exponentially impactful centre for upskilling and mentoring Ghanaian youth. While driving their social inclusion, education, and empowerment,”

Spotify’s arrival in Ghana has seen the emergence of artists, the likes of Gyakie, Blackko, Amaarae Moliy, and Koffee Bean all of which have been featured on its platform through playlisting and exposure to the international market.

Meanwhile, Vibrate studio is set to officially open on October 14, 2022.
