Fan Club For Tinny

Arts Crusade has gathered that a fan club meant to celebrate TINNY, Ghana’s hiplife Ga Mantse, would be outdoored by the end of this year.

The club, to be known as “Aletse Fan Club”, would have a network of branches all over the country. The very first one would be outdoored in Accra, precisely at La Burkina Apapa, a suburb of the city.

Explaining to Arts Crusade the rational behind the “Aletse Fan Club”, one of the brains behind the concept, Ayew Amoah, a.k.a SOLAR, said TINNY had been an inspiration to many young people, especially those who want to enter the music industry.

SOLAR noted further that TINNY, (a.k.a Aletse Kankpe) was among the very few hiplife musicians with an exemplary moral background.

“TINNY, you would be surprised, does not drink any alcoholic beverage, does not smoke, does not misbehave at his shows and is always decently dressed. We want to prove to all young persons who want to do hiplife music that it is possible to be a hiplife star without smoking or drinking. We want people to know that hiplife is not about immorality or indecency”, SOLAR explained.

Other young persons Arts Crusade spoke to in the area said though TINNY had only two friends whom he visits in the area, he had become a friend to all in a very short time.

Arts Crusade learnt that before TINNY burst into the music industry, he used to visit two of his friends, “Olonka” and “Laryea Don” in the area. When he became a music star, he kept frequenting the area and on weekends, played soccer with the youth.

TINNY was reported to have exhibited a very humble and generous character to an extent that he had earned the affection of both the old and young in the area.

He is known in private life as Nii Addo Quaynor. He is the last born of six children and thus, got the name “TINNY” from his mum.

He had his Senior Secondary education at Okuapeman Senior Secondary School. He also had his basic education at the Osu Salem Junior Secondary School, Hepter International School at Akim Oda and the Osu Home School.

He is noted for his Ga lyrics and started rapping at the tender age of eight at parties and entertainment programmes.

Arts Crusade has gathered that Aletse Kankpe was officially engaged to the lady of his heart three weeks ago.

Pictures and reports from the engagement ceremony would be produced in the next edition.
