Kofi Kinaata, the ‘things fall apart’ hitmaker has added his voice to the ongoing sensitization and education of the populace about the novel Coronavirus pandemic.
“We all enjoyed in 2019 during the year of return, but now we’re faced with this predicament and that’s what it is.
Let’s all abide by the interventions put up by the government to salvage the situation. Students who are now home should read indoors and avoid handshake with their colleagues for the meantime.
Let’s enhance our personal hygiene and keep our environment clean. Let’s all stay safe and healthy because life is precious”, he said.
Speaking during a celebrity interview with Amansan Krakye on Radio Central in Cape Coast, Kofi Kinaata counted his losses emanating from Covid 19.
“It has affected everything not only musicians. Even churches have been closed down. My show in the USA has been cancelled.
This upcoming Easter celebrations at Kwahu, our cocoa season where we can make some money, is also off and now we don’t go to the studio to record songs because it’s not safe with the gadgets”.
Suspension of VGMA
When asked by Amansan Krakye if the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards 2020 should go ahead irrespective of the Coronavirus scare, the 2-time VGMA songwriter of the year award winner and currently artiste of the year nominee, said “Social gatherings are now dangerous to our health and safety. I’m not sure Grammys and some big awards and events will proceed if the disease persists, even EPL has been suspended.
Human life is more valuable than anything else so if the Covid 19 doesn’t end soon then it won’t make sense to go ahead with the VGMA, I won’t even perform if I’m billed to do so”.
