Unlike many Ghanaian celebrities who value being a celebrity as the biggest thing that has ever happened to them, rapper and singer Darryl Paa Kwesi Bannerman-Martin, who performs under the stage name Joey B, has indicated that he does not take celebrity tag serious.
Speaking on GhOne TV’s Rythmez monitored by WestAfrica24.Com recently, the ‘U X Me’ composer disclosed that, he lives a simple life.
The award-winning rapper told Regina Van Helvet, the host that he does not take the celebrity tag too serious like how Sarkodie, Shatta Wale and Medikal does.
He made this statement known in a direct response to a question asked about his top 5 celebrities in Ghana.
The former Black Avenue Musik recording artist named Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Ebony and Medikal excluding himself.
When asked why he did not include his name to the list he said he does not take the status as serious as the names he mentioned because he does not see himself as a celebrity.
Joey B was born in Cape Coast, Ghana. He realized his talent for music at age six (6) when he formed a group and aided in ghost writing most of the songs they made together. This bolstered his unrelenting strong desire for music and pursued it. He had his primary education from St. Theresa’s school and later went to Accra High Senior High School. He graduated at Zenith University College in 2012.
Later on, he collaborated with producer Lil Shaker till they met Jayso, the founder of Skillions. From then on, he has worked with various labels and producers such as Hammer of The Last Two and Black Avenue Music and produced many hit songs such as “Tonga”, “Pinch mah Nips”, and “Strawberry.
He has won several awards to his credit.
