Former signee of the Burniton Music Group, Kelvin Brown, well known as Kelvyn Boy has claimed on numerous occasions that he is the originator of the Afrobeat genre.
The “Afrobeat badman” revealed in a tweet that Ghanaians always bashed him for promoting the Afrobeat genre yet he was not the only one benefiting from it, which makes him happy.
In reaction to that, the musical duo, Galaxy has rubbished Kelvyn Boy’s claims of being the originator of Afrobeat in Ghana.
In an interview with Kumi Kasa on ABEN FM, Gallaxy said that R2Bees during their hay days started something similar to Afrobeat but it was him and his partner who perfected the genre in Ghana.
As a reminder, Kelvyn Boy has been nominated in the Best Afrobeat/Afropop category in the yet-to-be-held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
