- Kofi Kinaata says competition is not a thing he looks up to in terms of battling other rappers
- The rappers believes he is as good as any other Ghanaian musician
Ghana's Best Songwriter at the VGMA, Kofi Kinaata has ended the debate comparing him to astute Ghanaian rapper Sarkodie with his latest interview.
Born Martin King Arthur, the lyrical genius behind the critically acclaimed ‘Confessions’ hit song says Ghanaians should lay to rest the misplaced comparisons being made with multiple award-winning rapper Sarkodie.
The banter of who is the better rapper kickstarted with Kinaata's absence in the 'Trumpet' single on which the ace rapper Sarkodie featured artists he believed would inherit the mantle of rap excellence in the future Ghanaian music.
In response, Afro-DanceHall artist and owner of High-Grade Family, Samini, says his artist, Kinaata is soon to reign the rap industry in the country.
In an interview on Radio Universe, Samini said;
“For now Kofi Kinaata is the next big thing in Ghana. He will be better than Sarkodie. I can bet on that because he is from my camp”
However, the rapper has debunked any claims of him being better than Sarkodie.
In an interview with Starr FM Kinaata said; “I respect Sarkodie. Sark is way, way up there. I looked up to Sark. I follow his steps. A comparison shouldn’t exist” in response to a question about him being better than Sarkodie.
Notwithstanding, Kofi Kinaata contends his lyrical prowess as an artist far outweighs that of any other musician in the country.
Latest to this addition of stellar songs is ‘Last Show’ which is receiving considerable airplay. A note to himself, the rapper posits the song to be a testament to the popular saying, "No man rules forever on the throne of time"
Kinaata is hopeful to release 3 new singles by the close of the year.
