Benjamin Tetteh moved to the States at a tender age, and after listening to records from Bunny Killer, Bennie Man, Tairus Riley, Lucky Dube and Bob Marley his inspiration and affection for music grew.
“The records from these great artist had an impact on my upbringing right from my school days in Ghana, but I became more into the music when I migrated to the United States. Music is dynamic and I don’t really call myself a dancehall artist though what I do now is dancehall.
“People say am dancehall artist and I take it as it is, but when the album drops people will know the real me and the kind of music I do.
“I do music not just for the fun of it, but I do music to inspire and motivate people in this cruel life that we live in.
Flexhibitz has a host of singles out in America and it’s about to embark on a promotional tour in the Caribbean’s and in Africa Ghana in the upcoming days.

Like what I have been doing since the release of my record in the Bronx, putting Ghana out there for other people to know.
