President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey, has revealed that emerging Afrobeat/Afro-Pop singer, Kelvyn Boy has no musical identity.
The CEO of slip entertainment is well known for his honest take when it comes to creative arts issues and how he criticizes the hell out of artistes when the need arises. Blessed with in-depth musical knowledge, Mark Okralu Mantey despite criticisms by many is one of the most successful producers and managers in the music industry.
Speaking on Daybreak Hitz with Andy Dosty, Mark Okraku Mantey, hinted that the afro-pop singer needs an identity when it comes to rhythms but it is unfortunate he doesn’t have one.
According to Mark, he has heard the artiste on so many rhythms and that puzzles him when one classifies the artiste as an Afro-Pop singer. He averred that the artiste sounds different on almost every beat that he jumps on.
“Does he have an identity when it comes to rhythms that he performs? He doesn’t. I have heard him on different different rhythms, different songs and he sounds different on almost every beat”, Ghkasa.com captured
However, the President of the Creative arts council revealed that it is not bad for the artiste since he is in the early days of his career and would need a hit single to settle and identify himself.
He drew the attention of Ghanaians to the fact that Samini who is now known for reggae/dancehall started as a hip-life artiste.
Kelvyn boy who is currently signed unto Burniton Music is on his Afrobeats Experience Tour.
