Ghanaian singer, rapper, and songwriter, Kofi Kinaata in an exclusive interview on Okay Fm with Radio Presenter, Abeiku Aggrey Santana revealed why he has not been singing in English or recoded any full English song.
In responding to the question, he simply asked him if Michael Jackson had ever recorded a song in the Fante Language.
The late Michael Jackson was a huge international superstar and known all over the world for his music.
Not once did he record any of his songs in a foreign language apart from English but he still made it big on the international music scene.
Michael Jackson is one of the great international musicians yet he has no African songs or features because he knows where he belongs and hails from.
What this means is that any Ghanaian artiste can become big on the international music scene by still singing in any of our local dialects.
With this, we think its right for Kofi Kinaata’s response was okay.
