Fast-rising afrobeats musician Kelvynboy known in real life as Kelvyn Brown has claimed that Stonebwoy does not do pure reggae and dancehall.

In an interview with Accra-based radio station Adom FM, Kelvynboy expressed opinion on the genre of music Stonebwoy and other dancehall artistes do.

"My boss Stonebwoy does not do reggae dancehall, he does Afro-dancehall. He is smart so he blended the two," he stated.

"If you are here in Ghana, you cannot do strictly reggae dancehall. It is a lie you cannot because it will not trend," he added.

He further shaded Shatta Wale, saying "those who claim to be doing dancehall are the ones doing Afrobeats when Beyonce came."

The Burniton Music Group signed artiste noted if there were dancehall artiste, Beyonce would not have recorded an Afrobeats song with Shatta Wale who is regarded as the dancehall king in Ghana.

He asked that a lot more attention be given to Afrobeats since it is what the outside world knows Africa for and not hip hop or reggae dancehall.

It is however surprising to hear Kelvynboy make this statement because in Ghana, Stonebwoy, Shatta Wale claim they are reggae and dancehall musicians.

Meanwhile, Shatta Wale has been in the news after he flaunted a customized Jack Daniels whiskey.

In a video that was sighted by YEN.com.gh, a bottle of Jack Daniels whiskey was seen with Shatta Wale's name boldly written on it.
