Highlife singer and rapper, Kofi Kinaata has opened up on his tribute performance for Hiplife artist, Castro at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2021.
You would recall that Kofi Kinaata joined his colleague, Kurl Songx on stage as he performed a rendition of Castro’s song to remember him as this year marks 7 years since his disappearance.
However, during Kofi Kinaata’s performance, he walked off stage immediately doing his verse of the ‘Odo Pa’ song which featured him but many were expecting him to stay on stage till the end of the song.
In an interview on TV Africa, he has detailed that he walked off the stage because it became a very emotional moment for him after he sang the first verse because he could not continue reminiscing the times he performed with Castro.
“I was going to be very much engaged alongside Kurl Songx and Sarkodie. When I started my verse, usually it is him and I on stage, I didn’t know what was happening so I just got off the stage,” he said
“He [Castro] is from Effiakuma. Most of the time when we were kids, when we watch tv and see people performing, we feel like they are on TV because they’re from certain areas. They are on TV because they are in Accra. So for me to see Castro from Effiakuma on TV, it was very big,” he said.
