Ghanaian Highlife musician, Kofi Kinaata has expressed his undying desire to leave a positive impact on society not just as a musician but as a good human being.
According to the musician, musician can pursue their craft without having to engage in the negative vices that are usually associated with stardom.
“One thing I will say is that we have this perception that when you are singing, and it is not gospel, you have to behave someway, you have to drink some stuff, you have to be high on some level, but they will see me normal as Kofi Kinaata, dressed up like the way any normal boy will dress up, but I am the star,” he told Joy Entertainment’s Becky.
“Some people think that Bob Marley was high before he wrote his songs, but Kofi Kinaata is also doing well, he doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t dress anyway. “
“At least I am giving the people of Takoradi a musician who is very conscious, who is making an impact but writes songs and does not drink,”.
“I also inspire people and tell them they can be an artist, you can write good songs without doing certain things, but it all depends on you. So they are all part of the inspiration.”
