Watch Video, Shatta Wale is our Dancehall King – Kelvyn Boy
Singer Kelvyn Boy is of the view that no musician in Ghana does core hip-hop or dancehall music. Musicians such as Stonebwoy, Samini, Shatta Wale, Iwan, Ras Kukuu and Jupitar among others are known to be championing the dancehall and reggae genres, but Kelvyn Boy believes none of these acts go strictly by the rules the dancehall and reggae genres require.
Talking about his boss Stonebwoy on Adom FM‘s Work & Happiness show, Tuesday, Kelvyn Boy said even him doesn’t qualify per his knowledge.According to the ‘Mea’ hitmaker, “it can never be dancehall if you are from here. There is no one going strictly by that. The moment you speak Twi, it is not anymore.
“Stonebwoy does Afro-dancehall. He is smart so he blended the two. You cannot tow such line because it won’t blow, even if it does it won’t help the act. Beyoncé came to Africa and she did Afrobeat with our dancehall king. I feel like Afrobeat is what we have to accept as ours. We are not recognised outside with those genres otherwise Beyoncé would’ve gone to Jamaica for a dancehall act,” Kelvynboy explained in Twi.
