Blakk Arm Entertainment (BAE) signed Afrobeats recording and performing talent, Kelvyn Boy, has premiered the official visuals of “Tele” (featuring the vocals of Mavin Records singer Crayon) – a single extract off his debut album “Black Star”. Shot in Ghana and directed by Babs Direction, the video is a direct representation of what the song sounds like. It follows the afrobeats artiste to a local beach party where he is being welcomd by a team of music band.
As simple as the video is, Kelvyn Boy and Crayon are seen performing ‘Tele’ with the band to group of party goers who are captured grooving and dancing along the Kel P Vibes produced song. The video is an embodiment of pan-Africanism as the venue is branded with some major African countries flags with Kelvyn Boy being adorned in a simple Ghana national colors. The heavily depicted Saxophone instrument in both the audio slide and video makes this project distinct.
Kelvyn Boy is Africa’s fastest rising star – and on Blackstar the Ghanaian wonderkid has delivered a statement of intent that will last the ages.
Named after Ghana’s iconic flag, Black Star is both a celebration and a critique of the country Kelvyn Boy calls home. With a tracklist that folds in social commentary, party jams, politics, religion, love and heartbreak, Black Star is an album in the true sense of the word; a carefully curated body of work that draws on the nation’s wealth of musical heritage and updates it, taking the listener on a heady ride through modern times.
He recorded it over the last three years while touring Belgium, the United Kingdom, Australia and elsewhere, always traveling with a mobile studio. The project received attention from Apple Music’s Africa Now Radio and scored him the cover of Spotify’s African Heat playlist, also earning support from Deezer, Boomplay and Audiomack. Now, Kelvyn Boy has a new mission: “I want to take Ghana to the Grammys,” He told Billboard in an interview

Yaw Tog Premieres “Sore Remix” Featuring Stormzy And Kwesi Arthur
A rising star in Ghana’s rapidly flourishing drill scene, 17-year-old Yaw Tog is currently riding high on a tidal wave of international acclaim. Last year, the rapper partnered with O’Kenneth, City Boy, Reggie and Jay Bahd for his song “Sore”, which quickly became a runaway hit for the scene.
Late last year, platinum-selling UK MC Stormzy made the trip out to the West African nation to hop on the track’s remix alongside fellow Ghanaian rhymer Kwesi Arthur. A non-stop onslaught of energy, the remix lands today with a set of high-energy visuals from KooPokuStudios.
To give the new track a test run, Stormzy took to the stage at Ghana’s UPP Festival when he performed there on New Year’s Eve just gone. Suffice to say, it went down quite well. Yaw Tog is dropping his debut EP, TIME, on March 25, which you can pre-save here.

And here comes a switch up, Ghanaian rap sensation, Phrimpong teams up with Shatta Wale for “Ohia”, another Khendi Beatz produced hot single. The young and fierce rapper recently shook the rap scene over a verse he found demeaning to his home base, and got Ghana talking about his prowess.
