Ghanaian Hip-hop sensation Kay Bryn has a new one and calls this one “Money” In a special interview with Starbuzz TV when asked about the inspiration behind this song he said “I got the inspiration by a comedy skit which was circulating on social media. It was about a man telling his girlfriend how wild he is thinking of how to make money and so the girlfriend shouldn’t disturb him or try not to seduce him.

Money has always been the ultimate goal for a lot of millennials and I have decided to motivate people through my music about the right way of getting that money. Drill was the best way to do this and I believe this will be the jam for this summer and beyond”.
