The artiste born Kelvin Brown was accused of stamping on Deborah Kponyi’s ribs and hitting her back and right hand with an iron rod several times.

The prosecution, Chief Superintendent of Police, Patience Mario, said the complainant, Deborah Kponyi, is a trader who has been in a relationship with Kelvyn Boy for more than 10 years. Together, the two have daughters.
According to the prosecution, the “relationship has been full of abuse.”
He said the accused and the complainant used to stay together but the singer packed and left the house to a new place.
