Kofi Kinaata, the brilliant Ghanaian songwriter, singer, and rapper, has claimed that his early views of the music industry have changed with time. He stated that when he first entered the market seven years ago, he believed that good music was all that was required to succeed; however, this is not fully true.
Martin King Arthur, better known as Kofi Kinaata, said on the GTV Breakfast show on Thursday, September 16, 2020, that “a good song plus a huge wallet equals success in the music industry.”
To put it another way, good music would be worthless if it didn’t have enough money to promote it and make it popular.
“You may write a great song, but if you don’t market it with the appropriate linkages and contacts, you won’t get anywhere,” he explained.
According to Kofi Kinaata, research is essential in music creation, but “believing in oneself” is a huge advantage.
“Behind the Scenes,” “Things Fall Apart,” and “Illegal Fishing” are just a few of the songs written by the multi-award-winning musician.
He has appeared in a few collaborations, such as Castro’s “Odo Pa,” which features Kofi Kinaata and Baby Jet. He mentioned how much he missed his Mentor, Castro, who had gone missing seven years prior.
