Watch Kelvyn Boy & Joey B's New Music Video For 'Mea'

PREMIERE: Watch the clip for the standout track from the Stonebwoy signee's new T.I.M.E EP.

Rising Ghanaian act Kelvyn Boy just dropped his new T.I.M.E EP on Stonebwoy's Burniton Music Group label.

The 8-song EP sees Kelvyn Boy connecting with big Ghanaian names like his label boss Stonebwoy, Medikal and Joey B over catchy afro-fusion production from Liquid Beatz and Samsney. "T.I.M.E is my debut EP and is an abbreviation for 'The Inspirational Moment Ever,'" Kelvyn Boy tells OkayAfrica, "From the production to lyrics it's strictly afrobeats—I wanted to represent this sound and Ghana's sound to a global market."


Today we're premiering the new music video for the EP's latest single "Mea," a sleek head-nodder featuring Joey B. Kelvyn Boy told us how the addictive track came about:

"Mea is a big tune for me and one of the EP's highlights I'd say, it has a highlife flair which I love. It came together really quickly in the studio, when I heard my producer playing something he'd been working on I was like 'I love that beat, let's put some guitar on this and start working on it.' So we put some guitar lines down and I just started to freestyle over the beat—my producer said 'yo yo we need to record this now!' So we put down the vocal there and then. I just needed someone who can rap and sing at the same to finish it off so I had Joey B in mind. We sent him the song and he linked us and the next day we finished it in the studio."

Get into the new music video for "Mea," directed by J Willz, below. Kelvyn Boy's T.I.M.E EP is available now.
