Norwegian-Ghanaian Akuvi is an Oslo-based vocalist, songwriter and entertainer. She was one of five pre-selected finalists in the songwriting contest Melodi Grand Prix in 2020, where she performed her original track «Som du er». When Akuvi was 21 years old she moved to Cape Town, South Africa to pursue studies of peace, conflict and religion. In Cape Town she started experimenting with her sound through a number of collaborations, jams and listening sessions. Her exploration led to a sound influenced by south-african gospel and west-african afro pop as well as contemporary hip hop and RnB. Four years later, she relocated to Oslo in February 2019, and within the first year of her return, she had released an album, several singles and music videos, and made appearances on both festivals and the TV screen. She is currently working on her newest project and the first single will be released this autumn, around the same time as Akuvi and her band come to Oslo World and Victoria.
