Celebrated young Fante rapper, Kofi Kinaata, ruffled some feathers when he boastfully says he is “matchless when it comes to dropping sensible bars and punchlines.”
In a one-on-one interview with Giovani Caleb and Anita Erskine on Starr 103.5 FM, he says competition is not a thing he looks up to in terms of battling other rappers to prove his point on how good and versatile he is when it comes to his craft, but then again, he had to come back and proudly say “I don’t see the reason to pitch myself against another rapper to prove a point or battle anybody”.
“But when it comes to dropping well meaning bars that are deep and sensible enough, nobody comes close to me. I am matchless when it comes to punchlines. Unless the person listening doesn’t understand the Fante I infuse in my rap. A lot of work goes into my style of music so it doesn’t come cheap.”
The host, Giovani, sarcastically asked him if he was better than Sarkodie. Kofi Kinaata’s swift response left Giovani in a limbo for a while. He (Kinaata) says, “I can’t compare myself to Sarkodie. He started way back before I got my face into the game. I respect him so much.
He is a Senior and if you’re making that comparison between me and Sarkodie it doesn’t even match up. He set the pace for us to follow so I can’t allow myself to be compared with him.”
