On the eve of semi-final three of Norway’s newly expanded Melodi Grand Prix 2020, the third pre-qualified entry has been released. Akuvi’s “Som du er” dropped just after midnight local time on Friday 24 January.
The song will receive its live premiere during the third semi-final of MGP 2020. However, unlike the other four performing acts, Akuvi won’t need to compete for a spot in the final.
She’ll only be showcasing the track as she’s a guaranteed finalist.
Akuvi “Som du er” (Melodi Grand Prix 2020)
Akuvi is a singer-songwriter with Norwegian-Ghanaian heritage. She comes from a musical family. Her sister Anna-Lisa Kumoji competed at MGP 2019 with “Holla”, which placed fourth in the superfinal.
Lyrics and music:Beatrice Akuvi Kumordzie, Andreas “Stone” Johansson
