HIGHLIFE musician, Kofi Kinaata says he is his worst critic and he does that in order to get the best out of himself.
“I criticize others so I make sure what I bring out is the best. Whenever I am done with a song, I make sure everything is on point before I bring it out. I don’t want Ghanaians or my fans to have any issues with the song I bring out so I take my time to work on it,” he told Graphic Showbiz recently.

According to Kofi Kinaata, he has people in the music industry he gives his final work to do a serious critique before it finally comes out. “My songs are always on point because they go through a lot of scrutiny before they are released. Samini is one of the people who listen to my work,” he said.
He explained that he always wants to inspire people through his music and that is why he sings positive songs all the time.
“I want someone to be touched one way or the other through my songs and the kind of messages I get when I release a song shows that I am doing a great work. To have Kojo Antwi, Nana Ampadu and other great personalities praise me for what I do go to affirm that I am on the right path,” he said.
Kofi Kinaata just released his latest song Behind The Scenes recently and he says it has picked up so fast because it is a great piece.
“Almost everyone is talking about the song because they can relate to it. I spoke about working hard to make enough money, advised families to stop putting pressure on their relatives abroad because all might not be well with them and so many other important things.
"Almost everyone can relate to this and that is the point I wanted to make,” he said.
Known for other songs such as Adam and Eve, Confession, Single and Free, Things Fall Apart, Susuka, Last Show and Oh Azaay, Kofi Kinaata said just like other musicians who have been hit by the coronavirus, he has also been affected.
“I was billed on a lot of shows for Easter but all had to be cancelled because of the ban on public gatherings and for some of us who do not do any other work apart from music, you can imagine what I went through,” Kofi Kinaata said.
