Kofi Kinaata, an award-winning rapper, has revealed that he is using his music career to leave a legacy.
In an interview with the Daily Graphic, Kofi Kinaata discussed his recent award at the EMY Awards Africa, which took place at the Grand Arena of the Accra International Conference Center.
Kofi Kinaata was named “Man of the Year Music,’ which means a lot to him, and he describes his victory as “significant.”
“Winning Man of the Year Music at the EMY Africa Awards is significant given that the scheme is not a music award.” It honors great achievers, and being a part of such a large group of people means a lot to me. It honors great achievers, and being a part of such a large group of people means a lot to me. “It means I’m doing something right,” the rapper explained.
Kofi Kinaata also stated that the award has challenged him to work harder and not become complacent with his work.
Kofi Kinaata revealed that as a young man, he wanted to be a footballer, but he is now content that he is doing music instead and is doing everything he can to produce good music.
“I don’t just release songs because I want to, but because I want my work to have an impact, and I’m glad I’ve been able to do so up to this point.” I am grateful that my songs are enjoyed by both young and old people.
“When coming out with a song, I always want to touch on a topic. For instance with Confession, I was only trying to raise awareness of the consequences of drunk driving but it turned out to be one of the biggest songs in Ghana and beyond.
“I don’t release songs with the expectation that they will be a hit but they all turn out to be successful. When you check the kind of songs I do, they shouldn’t even be hit songs because they are not danceable ones but to my surprise, they always top the charts” he added.
“I don’t believe in creating controversial stuff to hype a song even though I am not against it, I prefer to rather do a quality song and let it do the talking for me.
