The 'Kankpe' crooner Tinny, called Nii Addo Quaynor in real life, would no doubt be smiling by now as he has strived to move his career to a more refined stage, when most of his colleagues he started with are fizzling out.
Beatwaves’ observation indicates that Tinny is ahead of his colleagues as the only artiste who won majority of contracts to stage performances at major entertainment shows throughout last year. He topped the performance list with not less than 20 shows; something his pals in the industry find difficult achieving in a year. His close competitors include Asem, Okyeame Kwame, Kwaw Kese, 5five, Praye, Becca, R2Bees, Samini, Tic Tac, Sydney, among others.
Tinny hit the road with Ja Rule at the La Beach after the 2008 Ghana Music Awards. He was also the center of attraction during the Malta-Guinness Street Dance Nationwide Tour and the Malta Guinness Street Dance Africa Grand Finale at the La Beach; Mensah Sarbah Hall Week and Face of Legon.
At all these events he performed creditably, and also thrilled music fans at other shows like Miss Malaika, Stars of the Future, Stars For Stars concert for the Black Stars during the MTN CAN 2008 tournament in Ghana, Alpha Blondy Performs In Ghana and Adom Fm Homowo Round Up at the Korle Gono Beach.
The recent ones are the Joy Fm Old Skull Reunion, Night with the Stars, and the premiering of the movie Fantasia by Nigerian movie star Rita Dominic where Tinny appeared as a guest artiste.
The rest are Adom Fm’s Temafest, Decemba 2 Rememba organized by Citi Fm, and the premiering of Okratom Dawidi’s new video at the Boomerang night club where Tinny shared the stage with Kwaw Kese and a number of other artistes.
The last but not the least of the shows was the Zain 026 Experience concert where Tinny and other local big names like Kwaw Kese shared the stage with international heavyweights Wyclef, Eve, Mario and Nigeria’s 2Face Idibia.
Tinny, who started his real career in 1994 by performing at Fun World, an entertainment programme which took place every Sunday at the Ghana National Theatre, proved in those days that he was by all standards bound to make it in the music industry.
Tinny had also thrilled fans on NPP campaign platforms.
Tinny’s manager, Richard Agyemang Berko had this to say about the artiste: “When it comes to charisma nobody can match him. He also has style in his acts; I feel those are the core secrets of his success.” He told Beatwaves yesterday that Tinny’s Kaabu Ame album which has a lot of hits and his single “My Ringtone” contributed much more to Tinny’s success.
“Ghana should watch out for more as he would be dropping another tight album in Easter,” he added.
