Introducing Yung D3mz – the Gen Z artist from Ghana who's making a big splash in the music industry. Growing up in the Tema Metropolis, Yung D3mz has always been drawn to a mix of African and western pop influences, which he infuses into his music as a singer and rapper. But that's not all – Yung D3mz is also a talented songwriter and award-winning producer with a knack for creating hits. Just ask Kwesi Arthur, Gyakie, Joeboy, Twitch, Azanti, Psycho YP, Twitch, Kofi Mole, M.anifest, Adekunle Gold, Chrystel, Quamina MP, and Lapili – they've all worked with Yung D3mz and can attest to his skills. In fact, he's already won a VGMA award for Best Collaboration for "Baajo" (Kwesi Arthur ft. Joeboy) and has been nominated for VGMA Producer of the Year and 3Music Awards Afropop Song of the Year. Apple Music even featured his work in their Global Campaign for "Africa Now" (Baajo). Yung D3mz is on the rise and has his sights set on becoming the next Pharrel Williams or Kanye West. Don't miss out on this rising star – he's sure to make waves in the music world.
