All You Need To Know About Martei Korley, Ghanaian Reggae Artist Based in Jamaica

One the most uncommon genre done in Ghana, is the Reggae genre. And one the most promising Ghanaian Artiste in this Genre is Martei Korley.

In this week, I decided to profile this artist for that great talent. His career has been a very nice one since he started due to his great passion for his Career.
Martei Korley has always had a deep passion for reggae music since his childhood.
This love manifested through early stints as a bass player in Copenhagen and New York City and eventually led him to Kingston, Jamaica.
Living and working in the home of reggae, he immersed himself in the culture as a photographer, and co-founded the renowned Caribbean lifestyle website, LargeUp.
These days he’s gone from documenting reggae music’s biggest names with his camera to working with many of them as a singer.
Martei has voiced tracks with several producers, that includes Alborosie, Mitchum “Khan” Chin and Jamaica’s saxophone don, Dean Fraser.
The sound he’s developed effectively merges rocksteady sensibilities with ragamuffin and lovers rock styles, forging a new and ambitious way forward within a deeply-rooted music tradition.
After making his mark with the singles “Take Time” (which was featured on Future Sounds of Reggae Music, Vol II, a 2009 compilation curated by actress Mena Suvari) and “So Proud” (a rocksteady adaptation of the Curtis Mayfield and the Impressions classic) he released his debut EP, Kingston Konfidential, in 2014.
A collection of his  personal songs was conceived in reggae’s capital city, this set fused Martei’s soulful vocals with powerful riddims (from the Firehouse Crew, Denmark’s Yo-Akim and others) for an unconventional and refreshing style.
In his song “Shine,” Martei mixes classic reggae stylings with R&B and Trap, and a wicked cameo by Brooklyn’s Jahdan Blakkamoore.
Next up he’ll appear on Alborosie’s His Majesty Riddim (alongside Mr. Vegas, Sizzla and others) with a track called “Toxic Love,” a song that explores relationship problems and MK’s self-professed allergy to them.
In his music “Agonizing,” Martei focuses on the human emotion, love and romance. The single is produced by Delroy “Fatta” Pottinger, with assistance from the great Sly Dunbar.
And now his most latest  song is Perfect Passion, a song that discuss with you ; is  your passion for what you love to do Good or Bad. A very nice song blended with reggae ethics and good love to talk about.
Martei will continue to hone his talent and looks forward to one day dominating the reggae music industry.
