Ghanaian musician and songwriter, Kofi Kinaata has reacted to the artiste of the year titled given to Kuami Eugene at the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.

Kinaata, who was also nominated in the artiste of the year category, told DJ Reuben on Luv FM’s ‘Oseikrom Top Ten Chart’ show, that he was the people’s favourite.
“I know I’m the Artiste of the Year. It was just on the plaque [for Kuami Eugene] but I knew it’s mine,” he said.
Answering a question on his expectation before the award ceremony was held, the ‘Things Fall Apart’ composer stated, “I wanted everything”. However, he added that he wouldn’t say he was disappointed, emphasizing that It could have been me too.”
He added: “Looking at the year under review, it was Kofi Kinaata. I know my songs are the best.”
Though he didn’t win the ultimate, Kofi Kinaata was motivated by the words from his fans.
“Majority of Ghanaians will say is Kofi Kinaata but aside the judges, anything can happen,” he said.
Kofi Kinaata won three awards at this year’s VGMA. He won Best Songwriter of The Year, Most Popular Song of The Year, and Highlife Song of The Year.
