Monrovia – Kendolen Kebbeh Kennedy, aka Brownskin, is known in the music industry for her classical talent in the Liberian Afrobeats. As a singer and songwriter, her curiosity for music arose after her parents separated when she was only 10 years old.
She was born on April 9, 1999 in Monrovia. Brownskin grew up in a strict Christian family. By listening to music on radio stations, she was able to overcome the trauma of her parents’ break-up.
Said, “As a lonely teenager, those moments in the room, singing were when I felt free. These are the moments that defined my art and led to the birth of “Brownskin”.
From his musical beginnings, Afrobeats and R&B music have inspired Brownskin’s unique sound. In October 2020, Brownskin signed a recording contract with 50/50 Entertainment. Soon after, she embarked on a mission to revolutionize the Liberian music industry, which had little to no impact on performance in the grand afrobeats arena.
In May 2021, Brownskin’s management announced a collaboration between themselves and one of their idols, Teni the Entertainer on a single called “Merry Go Round”. This long-awaited track was released on June 25, 2021 and received wonderful reviews. This track put Liberian music in the spotlight and made it clear to the rest of the world that Liberian music is evolving.
“The song Merry Go Round addresses the ongoing struggle women endure when seeking meaningful relationships with men. Teni and I are teaming up to tell these men that we don’t want a “Merry Go Round” relationship which means back and forth, we want a stable and cohesive understanding without confusion or drama. This is a global message that resonates with women of all cultures and walks of life, ”said Brownskin.
She added: “I’m shy and calm and I don’t speak a lot, that’s my temperament, but when I sing I have a lot to say and I won’t stop singing until I have expressed my thoughts to the speaker. world”.
