For Keyon, music has been one of his main passions.

In 2018, he unveiled his last mixtape called “Summers Not Over“ which had a total of 9 tracks. He highlighted “Summers not over was a mixtape that I really wanted fans to listen to even after summer was finished, it was something I wanted fans to take with them and reminisce about.”
Keyon has now impressed fans with his latest single called “Fly Out”. He is currently working on releasing singles before summer. He also plans to focus a lot more on creating visuals for his singles. Keyon says, “I believe that having music videos are essential, it gives fans something truly entertaining.
