Award winning highlife artiste and songwriter, Kofi Kinaata, has stirred massive controversy by claiming that he would have won VGMA Artiste of the Year and Most Popular Song of the year if Coronavirus hadn’t disrupted the event.
In an interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central in Cape Coast, Kofi Kinaata said, “as for 2019, hands down without sounding arrogant I am by far the artiste of the year and I’m not saying 2020. I did more than any artiste in that year with hit songs, several ambassadorial deals, numerous shows that I performed and on top of all I was adjudged the most influential youth”
“This doesn’t mean that if the awards scheme should happen today I would be expecting to win the artiste of the year by hook or crook. I believe I’m the artiste of the year in 2019 and anyone’s opinion doesn’t bother me”
When he was asked whether he’s not scared of Sarkodie’s monster banger ‘Oofeetso’ he said:
“Oofeetso is a good song and I really respect my senior colleague Sarkodie. But when we say most popular song then it means that song crossed boundaries which I believe my song ‘Things fall apart’ stands tall”
“There is an alcoholic drink called Bailey’s which is very expensive but you can only find it at night clubs. There is another drink called Coca Cola which is not expensive but you can find it at night clubs, churches, mosques and even Saudi Arabia where alcoholic beverages are not sold.
“That’s the horizon that ‘things fall apart’ attained, it was everywhere and that’s what we call most popular song” he explained.
Kofi Kinaata has released another mind-boggling song dubbed ‘behind the scenes’ to entertain his fans in this period of partial lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
