Skillz 8Figure is already having a good run this quarter. He features Nigerian rap sensation PsychoYP in his latest single “Like Dat” amid anticipation for his upcoming “After Dark” EP which includes features from Oxlade, and Twitch 4EVA.
“Like Dat” is a catchy chill rap uptown track that sees Skillz 8Figure flossing his growth while serving as a warning to anyone who dares cross him. Skillz remains true to his unique sound which he dubs as a mix of Western African afrobeat and coastal music, delivering an Afro-fusion sizzler with soft guitar strings and piano melodies. The instrumental is carefully crafted, and Skillz 8Figure’s laid-back delivery compliments the 808 bass sound and dark synths. The chemistry between the two artists is undeniable as they both add an aura to the track that makes it an immediate banger.

More Press on Skillz 8Figure:
“Skillz 8Figure emerged as one of this year’s best discoveries from Ghana after he dropped his debut EP, ‘Gangsta Luv’. Skillz pulls off the tricky endeavor with his expressive writing range, as he conveys all the familiar sentiments from his different influences; bragging about sexual prowess, ambition and gang ties. Setting most of his songs to the slow and sexy groove of Afropop that listeners can feel in their hips, Skillz 8Figure’s music can serve dance floors. However, it’s his vivid and confidence-inspiring lyrics, that earns him the loyal following of fans who recognize his potential to represent Ghana on the world’s stage” – Debola, The Native Mag
