I have this firm principle in life; I believe you should be the reason why someone is happy regardless of the state of mind or emotion that you are in. That is why I sometimes try cracking jokes to make people laugh,compose songs to solace people and also offer help in any form when I have the capacity and resources to do so. You should be the source of someone’s joy. I believe life shouldn’t be taken too serious. The most important thing is to know yourself, the rest could be googled.My ultimate prayer for everyone in 2019 is that may we never need help from people who will mock us. Amen.#Teammove #madeintaadi #HAPPYNEWYEAR.
In all these sacrifices, he stressed that it really helped him gain some millage even before he started his own Projects.
“The start of everything never comes easy, I use to visit Old Solder now known as Asa Khalifa in Accra when I was still underground, he goes with me to his programs, I sometimes carry his bags to various shows. I was cleaning his shoes even before he leaves the hotel to perform. It helped me because people even recognized me early when I started my own projects too.” – Kofi Kinaata
