Allen Anjeh & band

Danceable Vocal Music from a Rising Danish Star

Allen Anjeh tells it like it is. She plays all things R&B, drawing on both her childhood in Cameroon and her teenage years in Denmark to create a unique sound that is entirely her own.

In her early teens, she moved with her mother to Denmark, a move she describes as a huge culture shock. Allen Anjeh had to learn a whole new language and stood out as the only black student at her Danish school. An experience she describes as very mentally draining. On the other hand, music became a free space for Allen Anjeh, who constantly hummed and sang to herself. Through music, she could express her thoughts and feelings. 

On her 2023 EP Ó mmɛ ne', Allen Anjeh proves her artistic potential as an alt R&B artist with a clear pop edge. At the same time, the album is a celebration of culture and the people that matter to Allen Anjeh - and a rebellion against the Global North's stigmatizing narratives and perceptions of the African continent.
