Ghanaian Afrobeats sensation, Kelvyn Boy has disclosed that one of the best feats from his hit song ‘Downflat’ was the acknowledgement from Nigeria’s superstar, Davido.
In an interview on Y 107.9 FM’s “Myd Morning Radio Show” with Rev Erskine, Kelvyn Boy indicated that it felt unreal and that was the support he always wanted.
He also recounted how his hit track caught the attention of several A-list artistes like Tanzania’s Diamond Platinum, Techno, and British rapper Stefflon Don.
“The song went crazy and so did I because I woke up every day and it was another person vibing to the song,” Kelvyn Boy said. “One day I had a text from Diamond Platinum’s DJ that they loved this song and want a remix. Another day it was Techno I was going crazy.”
He added, “That one that actually blew my mind was I went in my DMs and I saw Davido’s text saying he loved it and plays it every day. He actually said he wants to put me on his album. I sent him a song and he asked me to come over to Nigeria, but I went for a tour after I realized it and when I came back the vibe has been slow, especially about the sad death of his son.”
Despite not being able to work with Davido yet, Kelvyn Boy expressed gratitude for the support he received from the Nigerian artist. “For me, the fact that he loved what I do and he came forward to text me, was all the support I needed. It was an inspiration because I felt coming from him, I was doing something right along the way.”
Kelvyn Boy also highlighted how humbled he was to have received recognition from artists he admires. “Coming up as an artiste, there were artistes I loved. So for me to get these interactions and link-ups with them is just unreal,” he said. “For Techno and even Steph London, they loved it and did the remix. I didn’t push them; they just did it, and I think that’s the best way it should always be from the heart.”
Kelvynboy’s ‘Down Flat’ has been nominated in the Highlife Song and Most Popular Song of the Year categories of the 24th Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
