Kamelyeon Laments About The Difficulties Covid Has Exposed Him To

Published

on

Ghanaian dancehall act, Kamelyeon, has bitterly blamed the global pandemic for his active work on stage. Though he believes the whole new virtual experience of performances are also cool, he does miss the real one-on-one connection with the fans while performing on stage. He was on interview with Kweku Delicious on Pan Africa TV on Thursday, January 21, 2021.

“I really miss performances that engage my audiences directly. And I blame COVID-19 for it. If this virus were not to be with us by now I would have been out there playing different stages back to back and finding more platforms to promote my ‘Rainbow’ EP. My streaming numbers for the EP are looking good but I am an artiste who loves to engage my fans directly and that comes with the gigs and engagements with them face to face”, Kamelyeon lamented.

His 6-tracked EP has crept over 60,000 streams on Audiomack, Boomplay Music and YouTube. He launched it on November 13, 2020. Listen to his “Rainbow” EP here: https://mipromo.ffm.to/kamelyeon-rainbow

Koffee Unveiled One Of Calvin Klein’s Latest Underwear Models

Published

on

Koffee turned heads and raise some eyebrows by modeling Calvin Klein’s spring 2021 underwear collection. She joins other celebrities like Megan Thee Stallion, Rina Sawayama, Jacob Elordi, Terence Nance, Janaya Future Khan, and more in Calvin Klein’s spring 2021 campaign. This is her first underwear deal and her first with the iconic clothing brand.

It’s March 2021, spring is upon us, and Koffee is gracing us with another surprise new corporate endorsement deal while showing some skins while she’s at it. The reggae/dancehall crooner is known to wear ample often baggy clothing, so being an underwear model will come as a huge surprise for her fans who are already reacting to her post on her Instagram page.

She compliments the fit with a Calvin Klein denim jacket with socks and sneakers, showing off her toned legs and abs. The pint-size dancehall star has always maintained her toned physique, but for the first time, her fans get a glimpse of it.

Last year, Koffee signed endorsement deals with Nike/Jordan and MasterCard, which saw her becoming brand ambassadors for both Fortune 500 companies. The singer attributes her success in winning over corporate companies to her positive music and attitude. This, she revealed, has also help Jamaica on the global stage.

“The positivity that I put in my music has put me on the map, has helped me to put my country even more on the map, has brought me across the world and showed me a lot of different things,” she said. “So, that’s something that I wish to continue to hold at the forefront of what I represent.”

While speaking about her deal with Jordan in November last year, Koffee opened up about self-love and exuding confidence in herself. “Confidence begins with self-love and self-belief. I don’t really know how to tell somebody to love themselves, necessarily, but even me, I have to find a way to love myself, to emit love into the world,” the singer said.

Aside from stacking up on endorsement deals, Koffee continues to see major success locally and worldwide with her music. She told Rolling Stone that her sophomore album will be about bringing people together and finding solutions to problems. Positivity will continue to be a major theme of her music.

With a Grammy Award under her belt, she is looking to add another when she released her second album later this year. While we await new music, we’re still bumping her previous releases of timeless joints like “Lockdown,” “Pressure,” and her mega-hit “Toast.”
