KK:Thank you for asking Tkbesh! I have had that question asked many times. KennyKeyz production is a recording company.
Tkbesh! How did you come up with the name “KennyKeyz”
KK: Kenny evolved from my real name Kehinde. Kenny is the English version. I played piano for so many artistes, putting them together most artistes started calling me kennykeyz (Laughing)
Tkbesh! Can an artiste do it alone these days by leveraging YouTube, Myspace, ReverbNation, etc.
KK: Not exactly, but of course there have been many internet success stories of artistes making it big after a label or producer hears their music online. On the other hand no artiste can do it exactly alone depending solely on social network platform without proper promotion which of course takes a lot of capital. However with the help of people like media sources such as Tkbesh! We shall get there some day. Most aspiring artistes out there really need all it takes for promotion.
Tkbesh! How has social networking benefited your business?
KK: Social networking is a great way to get thousands of new fans that you might not get otherwise. It has been a great benefit.
Tkbesh! It has been nice talking to you KennyKeyz.
KK: It’s my pleasure.
