On our spotlight today is a young talented Liberian hiphop / hipco rapper artiste who goes by the name Franklin Edward Harris and is commonly, popularly, and widely known as Skinnyboi Kpanto. Kpanto is presently signed with HolyRecordz; a Liberian record label.
Skinnyboi Kpanto is an easygoing artist who has a simple and humble life style. He is fearless and he lets out all his emotions through his songs. His songs are mostly about his personal experiences and his present stage of life. This young fellow songs are highly admired by young people.
He started his music game in 2014 after getting his motivation from a well known rapper, “MNM”. He then hit the spotlight in 2015 when he made his first song titled, “Dope boy“. This song was sung for all the boys that were dope like him; Kpanto.
Later that same year-2015, something wonderful happened. He was one of those who did the “Panda freestyle “, which turned out to be a hit. The Panda freestyle was what opened the door for Kpanto. It covered up for his silence of 2014 and officially brought him on the music market.
Skinnyboi has made several songs including a recent one titled “Lofa County Meet Anthem”. He made this song to cheer up the Lofa county’s team during the 2019/2020 National County Sports Meet. If you listen to the song, you’ll come to understand that he is giving a message to the opposition teams. Saying, they should take time how they play the game, because Lofa girls and boys are CHICKEN EGGS. The song gives a clear picture of support. Supporting one’s team and county in such time is more then enough, instead of just sitting back and doing absolutely nothing. Kpanto’s voice was again heard in this song.
Kpanto manager is Augustine Ford who is well known as AFOR4DOE. AFOR4DOE is the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Holy Records. He has been managing Kpanto from the beginning of his musical career.
Having said so, Skinnyboi always keeps his fans updated about this daily activities. He makes the Koloqua (the typical language Liberians exchange) sounds extraordinary whenever he hits the mic and that’s why his fans love him.
