Selasi “Love Me or Leave Me”

While many artists call their music “diverse,” there are only a few who are as diverse as Selasi aka The African Kid. In fact the artist, songwriter, producer/engineer’s musical style journeys sonically through the diaspora blending American Pop/R&B, Ghanaian Hip-Life, Afro-Pop and Caribbean Dancehall rhythms into a musical palette of sound that can only be called Global Pop. MTV World channel, MTViggy calls Selasi’s music, “a fluent blend of hiplife, pop and reggae” exclaiming that “he’ll be the first artist to truly and seamlessly merge all three styles!”
If you’re still moving to “Tear Up The Floor,” from 5 track EP, Shades Of Grey, the party continues with his latest single, “Love Me Or Leave Me,” soon to be international club hit! The first to jump on the single was Atlanta’s club DJ Mars and DJ Bobby Black who hand-selected the song for their TomorrowWorld 2015 (The Experience) Mixtape adding the song to a lineup of pop superstar acts including Maroon 5, Ariana Grande, Nirvana, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Calvin Harris, Justin Bieber and more. Atlanta radio DJ, Osei The Dark Secret (V103, 94.5FM The Streetz) hosted a birthday party for Selasi to premiere the music video and on his @Oseithedarksecret twitter timeline called him “our next international star!” Next came a tweet from RHOA’s Kandi Burruss sharing the song to her 1.5million followers.

Known to wear many hats: producer/engineer/songwriter, Selasi now adds video and film director to his array of many talents. While he’s known for producing, engineering, and co-writing songs for a variety of artist, several appearances on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA) and joining the cast of Kandi Burruss’ Bravo TV spin-off, The Kandi Factory (aired in 2013) was the experience he needed to add film & TV to his repertoire. In 2014, he formed and founded production company, Steady Vision Film, directing, producing and editing his music video for the “Love Me Or Leave Me” and co-producing and directing short film, “Haunted” starring actress Rachelle Neal.
