Kofi Kinaata, a hip life artiste in Ghana has hinted that the hip life artiste Castro is still not dead but will surely come back again “the disappearance of Castro is still in my mind which am praying endlessly for him to come back because he is just missing and not dead” said Kofi Kinaata.
Kofi Kinaata who came up into the lime light when he featured on Castro’s “odo pa” song in an interview told DJ Use on Rite FM’s drive time show during the celebrity profile segment that, although he is doing his best, he believes he would have been better off if Castro was around.
Martin King Arthur aka Kofi Kinaata the undisputed Fante Rap God said, he had a lot of plans with Castro before his disappearance seven month ago. “I have released a couple of singles but it has not been easy without him. I consulted him for everything and whenever I have a song in mind, he is the first point of call” said Kofi Kinaata.
He also revealed during the interview with DJ Use that he had written a lot of songs with Castro in mind but only hopes for his dear friend to come back. Talking about his music career, Kofi Kinaata exclusively disclosed that all is set to drop his new hit single in March 2015 which features Kaaki.
Kofi Kinaata who is currently under High Grade Family management said anyone who hears him rap falls in love with his lines because they are clear and straight to the point. According to him, unlike most musicians who rap for the sake of it, he chooses his words carefully to address an issue. “I make my words so clear that those who cannot even speak Fante can understand clearly what I am saying.”
To him, one thing that makes him stand out is how he delivers on any track he has been featured on. “I have done a lot of single tracks but they are not known because I have not promoted those songs yet, however, the two singles I released last year Onnyi Chorus and Different made modest impact.”
About how he started his music career, Kofi Kinaata who has worked with musicians like Samini, Kesse and others said he started rap when he was young but started getting serious recognition after he featured on a “Kasahare” rap competition on Melody fm in Takoradi and also during his school days at Takoradi Technical Institute.
He added that he did a lot of rap battle on radio stations and many platforms during his schools days and that made him who he is today.
“My fans always wanted to hear what I was saying and kept it simple and clear, so it was not surprising most people like my rap on Castro’s Odo Pa.”
Born in Takoradi, Effiakuma, Kofi Kinaata recounted his musical journey with Castro and explained that it was not difficult working with a musician like Castro because he knew what he was capable of.
He said Castro, Samini and a few other musicians who have seen him rap know he is good and always submitted.
