Multi-talented artiste Kofi Kinaata has revealed how he used to shine the shoes of Asa Khalifa when he was aspiring to make his break into the music scene in Ghana.
Kinaata made this revelation in an interview with Beach Fm in Takoradi. According to him, he resorted to cleaning Old Soldier’s (now Asa Khalifa) shoes in order to benefit from his mentorship.
According to Kinaata, this act of humility helped him a lot and has contributed to his success in the industry today. He, therefore, cautioned upcoming artistes to be humble and learn from the seniors in the industry.
“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”.
