Clay 2 Nine (pronounced Clay Two Nine in English) is a reggae artist who blends world music and blues to give us a special soulful sound. That is what you get from an artist who has played with several bands, enjoyed fame as a childhood talent show star and whose five years singing in his school choir in his native Liberia is now paying off.
Some call him the new Alpha Blondy while Blondy himself commends him for his "beautiful voice". Lucky Dube fans get reminded of the fallen star when they listen to the wailing voice of sorrow in many of Clay 2 Nine's songs.
As a singer/songwriter and producer, Clay gives us just what he feels. He is his music. When he wrote and composed Humpty Dumpty, he imagined a duet between Lucky Dube and Alpha Blondy. Certainly, the fans of the two great reggae giants wonder whether Clay 2 Nine succeeded in getting the two artists together in a studio to record the song. Listen to Humpty Dumpty. You may also think the same. What an artist!
