Keche is a Ghanaian musical hip-life duo formed in 2004 consisting of Joshua Kojo Ampah and Andrew Kofi Cudjoe. Keche means "skills" in the Akan language.

The duo rose to fame with their debut album Pressure (2008). Keche has multiple nominations under their belt and their song Sokode topped several music charts across the African continent.

In the early part of the year 2000, Joshua took up a hobby of playing basketball and football at St. John's Senior High School. This was where he met Andrew who was a student and an athlete there.

Joshua hails from the Central region, while Andrew is from the Western region. They both spoke the native Fante and hence had an oral telepathy as they did musical freestyles.

By the year 2005, the duo had recorded several demos and mixtapes in studios like One blaze and Dons mic, all in the Tema Metropolis. Their recording quest drove them to the shores of the Highly Spiritual studio owned by legendary sound engineer Kaywa.

In 2008, Keche released their first single"Omogemi", which was followed by "Ring my bell" which featured Sarkodie.

They are known for the songs Sokode, Aluguntugui, Diabetes, Pressure, amongst others. In 2011, the duo was recognized as a Global Ambassador for Peace by the then Liberia's President, her Excellency Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

Following that, the group also performed at the UN Peace concert in Monrovia, Liberia in 2014 which gave the group recognition across Africa. In 2019, the group signed a record deal with Gem Rhythms, a subsidiary of Gem Multimedia.
