Amartey has become a familiar face here at the Melkweg after being crowned the Encore Freshman and then taking the role as regular host of the Encore events. However this performer from Ghana has much more to offer, he has taken it upon himself to be the torch bearer for the AfroPop scene in the Netherlands. Growing up in the Bijlmer Amartey began making music at a young age and unlike his peers he did not choose the typical route of making hip hop but choose to make music from his motherland Ghana.
