“Love is one of the greatest gift. I think we need to share more love.”
Kelvyn Colt is a globetrotting song-writer, rapper and entrepreneur. He sites 2Pac, Kid Cudi, Sade, Fela Kuti and Eminem as his inspirations. Kelvyn was born in Germany but raised bilingually by a Nigerian father and a German mother in Wiesbaden, the US military’s biggest outpost – the area is known for being home to artists such as Schoolboy Q and J. Cole. In our sidewalk talk he opens about his childhood growing up in Germany, teenage days, loving poetry, and how his music changed from early days.
