Kill Beatz gets platinum plaque for producing Ed Sheeran’s song

When British singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran joined Fuse ODG for a surprise visit to Ghana in June 2016, many did not expect he will take advantage of the trip to record a song.
Well he did! And on August 2, he released the video for the song, 'Bibia Be Ye Ye', which means 'Everything will be alright'. The video was shot in Ghana and directed by Gyo Gyimah of Phamous Philms.
Releasing the video, the British singer posted on Instagram: "Since it's summer I wanted to put out a video for Bibia Be Ye Ye that was made by a fantastic director called @GyoGyimah and all filmed in Ghana. I visited Ghana last year to make music with @fuseodg and @killbeatzgh, and whilst there was exposed to such wonderful culture, food, music and scenery. Me and Fuse wanted to showcase all of these things in a music video to show off the beauty of it. This isn't a single, but it's the summer, and why not have a summer song come out with a feel good video for people to enjoy. It's on YouTube now, just search Ed Sheeran - Bibia Be Ye Ye. And make sure you visit Ghana, it's incredible. Enjoy the video !x"
The song made it onto Ed Sheeran's third studio album, 'Divide' (÷). 672,000 units of the album were sold in its first week of release.
With millions sold so far, Ghanaian music producer Kill Beatz, has been honoured for his work on the hit song, 'Bibia Be Ye Ye', which was co-written by Fuse ODG.
After receiving a platinum plaque from the British Phonographic Industry, Kill Beatz, born Joseph Addison, said he was honoured to have produced the song.
He posted on Instagram: "I am very honored Producing #BibiaBeYeYe on Ed Sheran's Current Number 1 Album #Divide. Almost 2million copies sold worldwide and counting. #Bigup co writer @fuseodg and @teddysphotos #BibiaBeYeYe#KillbeatzLetsGo"
