Before you dismiss Clement Marfo as just another radio-friendly, crossover Hip-Pop artist, you need to check the credentials. One of the best live acts in the UK scene today – known for his energetic stage performances complimented by his band The Frontline – Marfo shows his critics that he can still ‘spit aggressively’ and more than hold his own in the art of freestyling too. After all, since when did being experimental with your music equate to selling out?
The freestyle featuring him and Dion Payne (The Frontline’s Drummer) marks a return to the Hip-Hop stylings and attitude of Marfo’s original stage persona Nemesis. Going back and forth over a heavy TMS production, the pair show that they can still get grimey with the best of them.
Constantly demonstrating his signature versatility, charisma and focus (qualities that are an absolute necessity in building a solid, lasting urban music career), Marfo is currently working on building his brand and reputation as an all-round entertainer for the next generation.
Look out for Clement Marfo & The Frontline, as they are already a strong contender in the UK urban scene and will certainly continue to build momentum within the industry over the coming months. 2010 should be a very big year for Marfo and if industry executives have any real sense they will stand up and take note.
