The discussion was centred on why no Ghanaian musician had focused on Fante love, and this got people to tag him under her post. He disclosed that this was way back in either 2018 or 2019.

He noted that after all the numerous mentions on Twitter by fans, he ignored it. However, a few years later, in 2023, he unconsciously walked into the studio to create something.

That something he created was what birthed his latest single, ‘Effiakuma Love’.

"The Fante women theme would have limited the song, so I decided to go with an African lady, " he said in the interview.

Below is the video of Kofi Kinaata talking about how Lydia Forson inspired ‘Effiakuma Love’.
