1UCID is gearing up for his comeback!
The US-based Ghanaian artist will drop his first single of the year and third project since he made his debut with “Miss You” in 2022. 1UCID took to his Instagram account to make the announcement.
Set for release on February 24, the singer-songwriter will release “Greatest,” a song he wrote to inspire his daughter, significant other, and loved ones. Through “Greatest” 1UCID will showcase his infectious vocals and exquisite lyricism. The single will also introduce music lovers to the contemporary sound he calls Afroblues which incorporates Afrobeats with urban blues.
Kwadwo Bedihene (stylized as 1UCID, pronounced “lucid”) is a Ghanaian-Nigerian singer-songwriter, record producer, and creative based in the United States. He is best known for his single “Miss You,” which reached the top of the iTunes charts in the United States, the Netherlands, Ghana, Nigeria, and France.
1UCID was born in Accra, Ghana, but relocated to the United States of America at the age of nine and earned a Bachelor of Science from the University of Akron, Ohio. Bedihene made his production debut in 2021 with the documentary inspired by Ghanaian theologian Mensa Otabil’s sermon, “A Generational Thinker.” The next year, he made his debut as a musician with the single “Miss You” and followed up with “It’s Giving.” The singer made a name for himself with his distinct Afrobeats and hip-hop fusion and is on a mission to create a new sound he calls “Afroblues.”
His singles got him featured on Pulse Nigeria’s Future Sounds playlist and cited by PM News as one of the artists to look out for. In February 2023, Audiomack named him one of the top trending artists, alongside Asake and Kizz Daniel, as he was one of the most streamed artists during the first week of the month.
