Meet Massimo Youngblood, The UK-Based Afrobeat Artiste With A Unique Sound
The Ghanaian Afrobeat artiste Prince Massimo Armah, who is now based in Leeds, in the United Kingdom, is known by his stage name, Massimo Youngblood, which is also used by a variety of others to refer to him.
Massimo started composing music at a very early age, and he took his inspiration from the sounds and music of the location in which he found himself, notably the music of Africa.
It was in the town of Dichemso that he and his family established their home when he first started his official education with Blessing International in Yennyawso, which is situated in close proximity to Dichemso. After that, he uprooted his life and moved to Accra in order to further his education.

Massimo began exploring a variety of vocal styles when he was 15 years old in an attempt to hone in on his natural voice. On the other hand, he quickly came to the conclusion that the vast bulk of the music now available is phonically repetitive and is oversaturated in the market. As a consequence of this, he came to the conclusion that he needed to produce his own unique sound (music) to which others would jam, and this decision was the starting point of Massimo’s career.
Massimo debuted his first song in 2016 when he was still a student at his high school. The track featured Blezdee and Rapkimilist, who is now just known as Kimilist and is now signed to MimLife Records. The song did not end up being a commercial hit despite the tremendously enthusiastic reception it received.
After that, in the year 2018, he went on to release his very first ever mastered single at the huge Ike entertainment studio. Rizzlah Stylah was featured on the track, which was named “My City” and had the same name. It was a very emotional song that talked about how people are willing to ruin and tarnish or bring other people down without giving it a second thought, and the song was about how people do this. The album was titled “My City”.
The song gained amazing applause, which led to him obtaining recognition in a variety of situations and eventually afforded him the chance to play alongside notable persons such as opanka, Luther, episode, and a huge number of other artists.
Since he started producing music as a profession, he has so far released more than ten singles, and the bulk of his songs have been broadcast for the first time on BBC Introducing in addition to being featured on GRM Daily. He has also won many awards for his musical work. Because of this, he feels both compelled and motivated to make use of his music in a way that will encourage others, have an effect on people, and urge them to act in a way that is morally sound.
The objective of Massimo Youngblood is to work together with well-known musicians in the music industry, such as Wizkid, Davido, Burnaboy, Sarkodie, and a large number of other artists.
