Kofi signs to Red Bull Records
Red Bull Records is pleased to announce singer/rapper/producer, Kofi, as the latest artist to join the label’s dynamic and growing roster. To coincide with the announcement, the 22-year-old Toronto native released the fiery track “F.A.Y.”, where he sings about moving on from an ex over an infectious trap beat. “F.A.Y.” is the first single off Kofi’s forthcoming Red Bull Records debut EP, The Story of My Life.
“After releasing music on my own the past few years, I’m excited to have the support of Red Bull Records and work with the team to release some incredible music,” says Kofi. “I’m really looking forward to the fans hearing my upcoming EP because it’s such a personal project that lets people into my world.”
Prior to signing with Red Bull Records, Kofi released music independently via his own Jvngle Music Group imprint, including fan favorites “Came Up” and “Wake Up”. Raised on his Ghanaian father’s gospel tapes, Kofi started experimenting with music early on, eventually forming his own signature fusion of rapped and sung vocals applied to a unique blend of trap, afropop and Toronto-inspired alternative R&B beats.
Kofi’s The Story of My Life EP is due out later this year. In addition to producing half of the autobiographical project, Kofi wrote, mixed and mastered the entire EP himself.

Over the past few years, Kofi has released fan favorite tracks, such as “Came Up,” “Wake Up” and “Hold Me Down” via his own Jvngle Music Group imprint, which have racked up millions of views.
