Out Of Africa: Ghana’s Amaarae To Join U.S Rapper Childish Gambino’s World Tour

Ghanaian pop star Amaarae has been confirmed as a special guest on U.S rapper Childish Gambino’s upcoming world tour starting next month.

The announcement coincides with the surprise release of Childish Gambino’s album Atavista on Monday. 

Amaarae was named alongside U.S singer Willow for the global marathon, christened The New World Tour, which will include nearly 80 dates and conclude in February 2025.

The 29-year-old confirmed her guest appearance via a post on her official X (formerly Twitter) account.

“On tour w/ childish (@donaldglover) this fall thru to 2025 ! it’s gonna be a wild time!” 

Amaarae’s announcement follows the Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA’s) platinum certification of her “Sad Girlz Luv Money” remix featuring Kali Uchis & Moliy, marking more than 1 million unit sales.

Born in New York to Ghanaian parents, Amaarae is known for her fusion of pop, R&B, Afrobeats, and Alté, as well as her fluid representation of gender and sexuality. In 2020, Amaarae released her critically-acclaimed debut album The Angel You Don’t Know, which spawned the global hit “Sad Girlz Luv Money.” In 2023, she released her sophomore album Fountain Baby and later that year she became the first Ghanaian artist to appear on NPR Tiny Desk.
