Kwabena Darkwah PRODUCER

image93

Kwabena Darkwah (Koby D) was born in Tokyo, Japan to Ghanaian parents who served as Diplomats. He grew up in Ghana and spent many years in Zambia. As a young boy growing up, he was intrigued by the art of story-telling he would see on tv, film, and hear in music. While in his boarding school Achimota Sec. School, his early love for the stage was apparent when he joined other classmates in performing as ‘Boyz to Men’ on Entertainment Night, a night of school entertainment where students perform musical acts in front of their peers.

His later years would take him through college, where he majored and graduated in Computer Science, but also where he took part in local modeling shows. He would later find himself leaving his job in Phoenix, Arizona, moving to Los Angeles and pursuing his dream of acting and music.

Some of his tv credits include performances in hit tv shows such as House, NCIS, Castle, NCIS-LA, and most recently in the new hit drama, Seal Team. His inspiration for making music began in his very early days in Los Angeles. His struggles as an artist during those early years would ignite his passion for self-expression which then manifested as poem entries in his journal, throughout the years that followed. His love for music would eventually lead into him seeking instrumentals for his poems. One of these poems became a song we now know as October ’96. This song would later inspire the creation of a music video, directed by Adetokumboh M’Cormack, which has so far been officially selected into several festivals, and recently won Best Music Video at the Columbus Black International Film Festival. Some of Koby D’s other songs are A Letter to Dear God and KobyD.

In addition to writing and producing music, Koby D also produces films. His latest film, Irish Goodbye is a London International Motion Pictures Award official selection and will be distributed by Journeyman Pictures in the Fall of 2018.

In his spare time, Koby D enjoys working out, hiking,and spending time with his loved ones.
