KKD Is More Mentally Enslaved Than Any Ghanaian With A Foreign Name – Kofi Kinaata Fires

Award-winning Ghanaian musician, Kofi Kinaata has questioned celebrated broadcaster Kwasi Kyei Darkwa aka KKD recent remarks that Ghanaians who have foreign names are mentally enslaved.

KKD in that infamous interview said that bearing an English name as an African is an indication that regardless of the fact that slavery ended so many years ago, the whites still have an influence in the lives of Africans.

KKD also opined that the Europeans will continue to be in control of Africans if we don’t change our mindset by naming our children with indigenous Ghanaian names.

But in reaction to this, super-talented Ghanaian songwriter, Martin King Arthur aka Kofi Kinaata has also stated that there is nothing wrong with having foreign names.

In an interview with Kastel FM, he made the point that it’s not just about adopting local names that will erase the factual impression that Africans continue to depend on Europeans.

“Social media that the person used to air his views are for the whites. Even the microphone that he used in the radio studio to make the point was done by our slave masters,” he told the host Amansan Krakye.

“So he shouldn’t have even used any of these innovative foreign media to relay his views if he truly believes in a slave mentality,” he continued on Kastle FM.

Kofi Kinaata further said on Kastle’s Drive that “He should have shouted or used a ‘gongon’ beater to express his opinion if he truly believes in mental emancipation. Why use the microphone done by the Europeans?”
