Kofi Kinaata deserved better in #VGMA2017 Nominations – Samini


Samini has expressed his displeasure at the VGMA Board for not treating ‘his boy’ Kofi Kinaata fairly.

He thinks Kofi Kinaata, who had a very good year, deserved more categories in this year’s awards.


Speaking on Hitz 103.9fm on Wednesday, March 1, Samini says, “I’m very disappointed that Kofi Kinaata couldn’t get in the ‘Artiste of the Year’ category. We’ve complained about that and even his songs swapped for different categories but nobody is communicating back. The list is already out and it looks like they won’t do anything about it and it’s bad. I’m very much surprised Medikal got n the Overall Artiste of the Year slot but Kinaata who did a lot last year couldn’t get in that category. I put out my song ‘Mama Ghana’ out there too hoping it would get into ‘Songwriter of the Year’ and ‘Record of the Year’ categories, looking at what we did with that song across Ghana but it couldn’t make it too – but I’m not much bothered about that than how Kofi Kinaata’s issue. He deserved better.”


Kofi Kinaata released songs last year and did a lot of collaborations. His two songs “Sweetie Pie” and “Confession” are major hits across the country and even outside Ghana. He seems to be the favourite for many in the awards (#VGMA2017). He is a HighGradeFamily artiste, under Samini’s tutelage. He won “Best New Artiste” and “Songwriter of the Year” in the 2016 VGMAs.


Samini was speaking with KMJ on Hitz 103.9fm via phone interview on #DayBreakHitz.
