Kinaata begs his competitors

In a new interview on Accra FM, Kofi Kinaata, who recently released his debut EP Kofi oo Kofi, talked about his chances of winning.

Entertainment analyst Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh told YEN.com.gh that Effiakuma Love's success makes Kofi Kinaata the likeliest to win the award.

"His chances are high. Under the year of review, he had one of the most vibrant and played reggae songs. It’s personally my tip for the category."

During his interview, the musician bent on winning the award sent a message to his competitors, including Stonebwoy, who won the award last year. He said,

"Please give it to me. I won't come there again. This is my last. Please give it to me and let me move on."
