The Most Influential Rapper In Ghana Currently Is Kofi Kinaata - Guest Writer

From the day I first heard Kofi Kinaata's bars, he has never been boring in his rap/music and he never ceased to amaze or impress on any joint he's put on. From the features he did with Castro, Asamoah Gyan, Samini, Hus Eugene, Kesse, name them all. He's been very phenomenal.
• My observations about him;

Kofi Kinaata's emotional vulnerability is very deep, due to this, he passes for the most influential hip-life artist (rapper) in Ghana currently. It is no cheap hype and no doubt Ghanaians have accepted him for doing real music (not just rhymes). His dexterity with the Fante language in which he mostly raps is a very good trademark that puts him in a good lead ahead of other rappers (especially the young ones).

Kofi Kinaata is one of the few rappers who exposes his character in a way that is both authentic and disarming. His fresh cut #SweetiePie, a love song he's done for the female fans (more or less a follow up hit) for his #Susuka, probably best exemplifies his ability to express his desires, fears, and frustrations with his upbringing and where his music has brought him.

It’s a very wide emotional spectrum that captures everything from description about his love for ladies and how he described his kind of lady in "Sweetie Pie" to the motivation that plagues "Susuka". Yes, there are other rappers who are also known for being emotionally vulnerable but Kinaata is different. He is a deep thinker.

The emotions he exhumes delivers through his music are chesterfield in a wide variety of experiences that he uses vivid storytelling to describe. I will say his single "Susuka" describes three situations with people whose negative energy distracts them from achieving their potential. It’s all artfully done, without being preachy, and it resonates with a much larger group of people.  You've been crowned with the Dante Rap God Title. You were meant for this. Nuff respect @KinaataGh, you'll take Ghana rap places.

Big up to his Management, High Grade Family, The Boss Samini, his Manager Anthony Daning (Tony Pun) and Elorm Beenie who's taken a good PR on him lately. High Grade Family certainly is a powerhouse for such talent factory.

Like I always say, I write to express not to impress.
