One thing is for certain, Kelvin Kay is not here to play and neither does he show signs whatsoever of giving up his dream of becoming a superstar. His latest single ‘Akwantuo’ arrives just three months after the release of his first single of the year ‘Yanga’ which is doing some good numbers and has been spotted on various playlists across streaming platforms.
Now let’s dive deeper into ‘Akwantuo’ which is a Twi word that means ‘’journey’’. This super hot record is produced by NLMGNM, mixed and mastered by Gomezbeatx. NLMGNM is a familiar name to some and one of the Ghanaian producers who like to experiment by fusing genres and this is displayed on his production for ‘Akwantuo’. The song starts with a popular kick pattern known to traditional Ghanaian music and is met with synths that ease into the harmonic melodies of the keys (piano), guitars and 808’s laced into this fine production which gives you a feel of Afrobeat, Highlife, and R&B/Soul all together.
