Rocky Dawuni, a musician from Ghana who has received two GRAMMY nominations, makes a comeback with his first brand-new song since receiving a nomination for “Best Global Album” for Voice of Bunbon, Vol. 1 earlier this year at the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards.
Rocky and Blvk H3ro have now collaborated to create the global roots anthem “Neva Bow Down,” which will be released globally on September 22, 2022, by Aquarian Records.
The potent new song blends elements of pop, dub, and reggae for a contemporary interpretation of “rebel music.”
Through the use of Jamaica’s potent resistance culture, “Neva Bow Downcollaborative “‘s spirit reunites Africa and the Afro-Descendant Diaspora.
With the help of producer Bob Riddim’s speaker-busting production, Rocky and Blvk H3ro create a tapestry of melodies with an unforgettable chorus.
This song of protest serves as a call to action for people to stand up for what is right and true by reflecting on the current, hopeless condition of world affairs and our ability as a species to alter the trajectory of human history.
Rocky Dawuni crosses the borders between Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas to produce his alluring Afro Roots sound, which combines elements of Reggae, Afrobeat, Highlife, and Soul to bridge generations and cultural divides.
Dawuni has won over crowds all over the world with his charisma and electrifying performances. He has performed on stages with legendary artists like Stevie Wonder and John Legend, among many others.
Rocky has been a passionate advocate for social and environmental change and is currently the UN Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa.
According to Rocky, “music is the medium to strike a chord that transforms our collective goals into a vehicle for constructive social change.”
One of Jamaica’s most innovative and fascinating young performers, Blvk H3ro (meaning Black Hero), is far from a newcomer to the music industry.
In the past five years, he has worked with artists like Bunny Wailer, UB40, Equiknoxx, and Skillibeng to create his upbeat and ambitious modern reggae sound, which has earned him a stellar reputation and a devoted fan base.
In a recent visit to the country, Jamaica’s Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, even sang his praises, praising his song “It Nuh Easy” for its positive influence on the country’s youth.
