Kelvyn Colt is a rapper from both German and Nigerian descent, who found it difficult to find his cultural identity - but music gave him a source of empowerment.
Growing up listening to 2Pac, Kid Cudi, Fela Kuti and more, Colt found solace in music and decided to quite his law degree in the pursuit of becoming an artist who could inspire others in the same way.
In the UK, Colt found a place where his music and lyrics resonated. He also found a university course in business entrepreneurship that allowed him to juggle business studies with music making, which meant he could learn about the business side of the music industry while mastering the art. After graduating, he set up a digital and social media consulting business working with brands, startups, and corporate clients — these days, this and music is what takes up his time.
Colt's debut EP, 'LH914' (the number of his one-way flight to London) was released in 2017 after a slurry of singles. He dropped 'Mind Of Colt Pt 1' in 2018, and his latest single was Love&Hate came in November that year.
Kelvyn Colt is set to headline London's Hoxton Square Bar in February 2019. Catch him live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
