Ghanaian afrobeats act Kelvyn Boy has stated that not even a single musician in Ghana; whether Stonebwoy, Shatta etc. are into strict dancehall.
According to Burniton Music Group signee, what Stonebwoy does is afro-dancehall.
He made this revelation in an interview on ‘Work And Happiness’ on Accra-based Adom 106.3 FM.
“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,” he noted.
“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,” he added.
He also stated that for Beyoncé to feature Shatta Wale on an afrobeat song, he believes it will be right to embrace the genre as our own.
“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 recognized outside with those genres otherwise Beyoncé would’ve gone to Jamaica for a dancehall act,” he said.
