Ghanaian Afrobeats musician, Kelvyn Boy, says he does not believe in record label contract signing anymore in Ghana. The reason for this stance, he says, is because when he signed a contract with his former record label, it was not as successful as he would have wanted it.
Contract signings have become significant in outlining obligations and expectations of both record labels and artistes all over the world but the 2018 VGMA Unsung Artiste of the year thinks otherwise.
According to him, he now prefers building a strong working relationship and understanding signing unto a label.
Speaking in an interview on local media he said, “Even the place that we signed, it didn’t go well, so I don’t really believe in signing in Ghana anymore. I’ve not been impressed with any record label in Ghana, trust me”.

Kelvyn Boy further added that he is not signed unto Blakk Cedi’s Black Arm record label although the latter plays important roles in his music career- making deals on his behalf and even paying for music videos but he has not “put pen to paper” to be on Black Arm record label. Their relationship, he says, is that of affiliation rather than that of contractual terms between a record label and an artiste.
The ‘Yawa No Dey’ singer was previously signed unto the Burniton Music Group owned by Stonebwoy and after year, both parties agreed not to extend the contract after expiration on January 21, 2019. Kelvyn Boy has since been working with Blakk Cedi who was Stonebwoy’s manager and owns the Blakk Arm Record Label. He is out with a new song titled ‘Momo’ featuring DarkoVibes and Mugeez.
