Martin King Arthur, popularly known professionally as Kofi Kinaata has disclosed that before he burst onto the scene and became this popular, he used to run errands for Hiplife artiste, Old Soldier- who is now called Asa Khalifa.
Kofi Kinaata, who was speaking in an interview with Beach 105.5 FM in Takoradi, apparently emphasized the need for humility with his disclosure. He said while willing to get recognition and learn something from Old Soldier who was then doing well in the music industry, he used to clean the latter’s shoes.
He said: “The start of everything never comes easy, I use to visit Old Solder now known as Asa Khalifa in Accra when I was still underground, he goes with me to his programs, I sometimes carry his bags to various shows.
I was cleaning his shoes even before he leaves the hotel to perform. It helped me because people even recognized me early when I started my own projects too, ” he concluded.
