‘Behind The Scenes’ hitmaker Martin King Arthur, known in showbiz circles as Kofi Kinaata, has revealed that music becomes more enjoyable when infused with sweet melodies and harmonies.
He said in an interview with Doreen Avio on Hitz FM that even when song lyrics and language are barriers to understanding songs, you can still enjoy the rhythms and melodies.
“I’m speaking Fante and even you sometimes don’t understand what I’m saying, what’s a poem when you don’t understand it?” he said as Amansan Krakye monitored. MyNewsGh.com
He revealed “I am telling you a poem in let’s say Spanish, how are you going to appreciate that poem but if the poem contains some melodies that even if you don’t understand the language or the lyrics you will enjoy the melodies and rhythms.
“I’m going to give you a Fante poem, instead let me do it through singing and infuse some melodies, harmonies, melodies that even if you can’t sing the song or understand what I’m saying, you’ll still feel it.” she narrated her.
Kofi Kinaata is noted for his lyrical prowess in terms of unique rhyme schemes and humorous style of Fante rap with a touch of traditional African proverbs in his local language to entertain and educate.
