I’m the ‘Artiste of the Year’ for the year 2019- Kofi Kinaata

Let's support Patapaa; he's unique – Kofi Kinaata

Ghanaian highlife singer, Kofi Kinaata has stated that but for the coronavirus pandemic, he deserves to win “Artiste of the Year” and “Most Popular Song of the year” at the 2020 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

According to the “Things Fall Apart” hitmaker, the year under review, 2019, was a good year for him, hence he deserves to be crowned as such.

Kofi Kinaata was speaking in an interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central in Cape Coast when he made this assertion.

“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,” he stated.

When asked by the host if his ‘Things Fall Apart’ song could compete with Sarkodie’s anthem ‘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 added.

The 21st Vodafone Ghana Music Awards which was slated for Saturday, May 2nd, 2020 at the Grand Arena, AICC, has been brought to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Published

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
