Ghanaian Afrobeats musician, Kelynbowy real name Kelvin Brown has opined that a musician recording a dancehall song doesn’t make him/her a dancehall artiste.
In an interview on Bryt TV, the ‘Mea’ crooner said some artistes by virtue of the fact that they recorded a dancehall song once begin to call themselves dancehall musicians whiles, in reality, most of their songs are either Highlife, Afrobeats, and other genres.
According to Kelvynbowy, this is wrong.
Explaining his point, he gave an example of Demarco, a dancehall artiste from Jamaica who came to do an Afrobeats song with Runtown from Nigeria. But the fact that Demarco did an Afrobeats song doesn’t make him an Afro beats musician.
The father of two is making these points as an advice to fellow Ghanaian musicians that there’s a need for them to identify themselves with local genres of music instead of adopting foreign genres which doesn’t in anyway sell our true culture and what we represent.
