Making the list of finest lyricists in Ghana as we speak can’t be left out Takoradi-based rapper called Kofi Kinaata.
He’s well-known for his deep and meaningful lyrical content devoid of uncouth words unlike Patapaa and his cohorts. But according to Kofi Kinaata, playing football was his first love.
Thus, Kofi Kinaata has revealed he was a top footballer during his high school days at Takoradi Technical Institute.
Kofi Kinaata revealed he was once a footballer and nearly played for the school team at his first year on campus in 2007.
Kinaata schooled at Takoradi Technical Institute from 2007 to 2010 and was one of the popular students back then due to his craft as a rapper.
In the interview with Skyy Power FM, Kinaata posited that he nearly played at form one and was even among the top 5 players in the team.
The Things Fall Apart Hitmaker and Two times VGMA Songwriter of the year concluded that he had to switch from football due to some challenges he didn’t reveal.
“I played football at Secondary School form one and was part of the [T.T.I] school team
“All the school team players were my playmates, they knew I was a good player and one of a top-five player in the school team.
“I couldn’t take football to a high level because of one or two challenges. I was a defender, and played Colts football with Depotivo FC U-14 [at Efiekuma]” – Kofi Kinaata on Skyy Power FM.
