Highlife and Rap artist, Kofi Kinaata has revealed he never had to force to be on Yaw Sarpong’s Joseph’s remix and he wouldn’t even be ashamed if that has been the case.
Kofi Kinaata posited that he was called on by the legendary artist, Yaw Sarpong to be on the feature and he was overwhelmed even a day before recording his version.
The two times VGMA Songwriter of the Year award winner said it was a shot above his weight to be on a song with the Yaw Sarpong.
Yaw Sarpong took to music in the 1970s and had been on classical releases like Joseph, Yen Ka Kyere Egya Se, Judas, and many others.
“If I am able to force myself on Yaw Sarpong for the feature it’ll be a great thing, but that wasn’t the case. I heard it first in an interview and later on, the call came for me to be on the remix. My followers on Twitter will testify that I was overwhelmed by the call to be featured on the song.
“I was able to do what I wanted to do, be myself, it was like a class 6 pupil sitting for a university exam. Even the sight of the studio can overwhelm you, it was a top standard studio – together with Maama Tiwaa they told me a story of how they started music in the 70s and it was a lesson and I was being too careful and was myself too” – Kofi Kinaata on Spice FM with Adjoa Nyamewaa Papabi.
