I make kumkum music, not afrobeats – Whitemoney


Big Brother Naija Season 6 winner and singer, Hazel Oyeze Onou, popularly known as Whitemoney, has revealed his genre of music.

The reality star, who has been widely criticised for his music, said his style is different from afrobeats.

He said he incorporates highlife in his music, but his genre is “KumKum music.”

He made this known while appearing on the latest episode of The House Chronicles podcast.

Whitemoney said, “I’m not even trying to do afrobeats. If I’m doing afrobeats, there is definitely going to be a fuse of highlife in it. And my kind of highlife is not the normal…

“My kind of highlife is kumkum music, you know. It is Cool United Melodies. It is contemporary highlife. It is highlife that you can vibe across all genres. You vibe them in the club, bar.

“My next production, my next drop is different. You will hear the sound. It is not the regular. We added somethings to it to spice it up. It doesn’t just go like that deep highlife where it is only for old people.

“I needed a sound where I can flex my voice perfectly. I don’t have tenor. I needed something that is okay for me that I can just manipulate and sing at my comfort. And that is how I just reached that [kumkum music].”
