“When we started, nobody expected greatness from us. We dropped Susuka and the song was everywhere but they said it’s normal in the life of an artiste to get a major hit song.

“We then released Confession and it was a monster hit but they again doubted and said we’ve gotten our biggest song so we can’t go beyond that.

“We dropped Sweetie pie and now it’s things fall apart but what do you expect from naysayers. When someone is forcing himself or pretending to be sleeping it’s virtually impossible to wake that person up.

“If you like go and record your song in heaven, let Jesus Christ play the beats for God to do the mastering still someone will still find faults with your type and style of music”.

“When you start the journey in the music industry you initially see it to be a competition but as you grow in the game you realize that it’s actually a contribution”.

It’s worth knowing that Kofi Kinaata is currently making huge waves across local charts and music trends with his mind boggling song ‘things fall apart’.
