Ghana’s rising comedian Richard Kwaku Asante, popularly known Kalybos has premiered his first ever music single on Hitz FM.
Kalybos is now a household name because of his comedy skits – Boys Kasa series – on video sharing site, Youtube.
He premiered the song in his first ever radio interview on Showbiz Tuesday with Mic Gizo Saturday.
According to him, the single, ‘Myself’ is a song about his struggle in life. To prove that he is equally gifted in music, apart from comedy and acting, Kalybos pulled a spectacular act when he was giving music instrumental to rap with.
The comedian recounted his days as a camera man who had passion for acting and that through his work, he had the opportunity of meeting some Ghanaian movie stars on set.
During his second year at the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI), Kalybos said he met Kofi Asamoah, a course mate who is a movie director and producer who expressed interest in working with him.
They came up with the idea to do a short comedy video titled ‘Boys Kasa’. The comedy video was initially intended for television but the high cost of television air time forced them to release the videos on Youtube.
Asked if his sudden rise to fame has had any effect on his lifestyle, Kalybos said nothing has changed because he still goes to Kantamanto to patronize second hand clothes which he does not intend stopping.
Kalybos debunked rumours that he is gay. He declared that he was straight but admitted that some men have interestingly passed glances and complimented him.
He assured his fans of more funny video skits and also urged them to watch out for his latest movie which will be hitting movie screens very soon.
