It is undoubtedly no more news that Kelvin Brown a.k.a Kelvyn Boy and Burniton Music Group have gone their separate ways, meaning Kelvyn Boy is now without a label/management and may be in search of one to redeem his battered image as an “Ungrateful artiste “
Consequently, one man who still believes in Kelvyn Boy; and finds him not guilty of any wrong doing is the ever smiling Chief Executive Officer of Black Music Entertainment(B.M.E); Mr. McDonald Agugoesi aka (godfather)
Mr. McDonald; who has a legal background and has been in the entertainment scene long enough to spot a creative talent when he sees one, stated that he is lost when a section of people continue to brand Kelvyn Boy as Ungrateful he said ‘’ It is quiet unfortunate to hear such news but using the word ‘’UNGREATFUL’’ is pathetic to say the least. This is a case of a giant trying to crush an ant. In a situation where we have a musician on one side and a music label on the other side wherefore the musician brings his talent to the table and the label bring the funding to tap from the talent, can we still use that term UNGREATFUL? until we know the true cause of this unfortunate incident, I choose to see him (Kelvyn Boy) as a business minded artiste whose contract was on the verge of expiring and do not see any reason to stay on’’, he stated.
Consequently the outspoken C.E.O believes that where two musicians are involved none has the capacity to use such a phrase because it undermines each other’s creativity. When asked if he will sign-on Kelvyn Boy should he (Kelvyn Boy) come knocking at his door…’’Hmm my brother, Am here for business so i will sign him. If you give that boy to me today, I will turn him into precious stone (gold) in two years, but these artists keep looking out for big names instead of serious minds. Look let’s be realistic, how can a musician sign a musician? It’s not easily workable especially in our African context. Jay Z signs artist and remains back stage. He never even signed a male artiste. A manager should remain a manager whilst a musician remains at the fore front’’- he asserted.
The B.M.E boss frowned at both parties trading words with each other on media for an issue which may have been managed
It will be recalled that over the past weeks there has been media attacks between one of Burniton Music Group biggest Artiste; Kelvyn Boy and the label following his (Kelvyn Boy) purported sack. According to paragraph one (1) of the press statement by the label dated 2th-September-2019, which stated ‘’ Mr. Kelvin Brown (Kelvyn Boy) and the Company entered into an agreement dated January 22. 2018 which, to a large extent, governed the relationship between both parties (the Agreement). The Agreement had an initial term of one (1) year, and provided the Company with an option to extend the tenure for a further period of four (4) years (the Option). Clearly shows that TECHNICALLY their agreement expired on the 22nd January 2019. The big question is WHO BETWEEN THE PARTIES OFFERED THE CONTRACT?
