Martin King Arthur, widely known as Kofi Kinaata, one of the most thought-provoking fante rappers in Ghana, has revealed why he decided to do more singing than his normal rap lately.
Kinaata revealed that he just wanted to move out of his comfort zone, which is rap and try different things.
Another reason cited by the singer for his switch, he said was his zeal to make sure more people relate well with his fante tone, adding that when he raps non-fante people do get it well.
“I started as a rapper; I wasn’t in a box, so I decided to think out of the box and say it’s music which is big, so let me try everything some, so I said let me try singing,” he said in an interview with Doreen Avio on Accra-based Hitz FM.
According to him, he was aware he “will be criticized if I don’t sing well, but I’m okay should criticisms come, and that’s how it’s supposed to be.”
The award-winning singer seeing how successful his partial switch has been good told his colleagues to try new challenges.
“The little advise I want to give is that feel free and get out of your comfort zone, try certain things, take risks and that’s how we get to learn,” he stated.
The “Everyday” hitmaker added, “If you are starting something, you will start from somewhere, so if you don’t challenge yourself or free your mind and be open to trying other things, you wouldn’t even know your strength.”
