He emphasized a pivotal moment when he was signed by the influential music group, High-Grade Family, despite being relatively unknown at the time.

Kofi Kinaata revealed that when he joined Samini’s “High-Grade Family,” he was not a well-known figure.
However, he experienced a warm reception from Samini’s fans, who welcomed him wholeheartedly into the fold.

I got signed unto the High-grade family when no one knew me. It was Samini that they knew some tagging along with Samini, his fans became automatically my fans,” he explained.

“What Samini did for me was give me a lot of exposure,” Kinaata explained. The acclaimed artist went above and beyond to secure performance slots for Kinaata, even for shows where he wasn’t originally scheduled to perform.

The ‘EffiaKuma love’ hitmaker recalled a special day when he had the chance to perform on stage at a huge event involving renowned singer Chris Brown.

“When Chris Brown came to Ghana, I was now in Accra, Samini brought me to the stage to perform 4 or 5 minutes. Shows I wasn’t billed to perform even though he got me to perform. Samini gave me a lot of exposure,” he said.

While acknowledging the pivotal role Samini played in his journey, Kofi Kinaata made it clear that he had been actively involved in rap and music since 2008.

But he didn’t really discover me. I was doing rap and music way back in 2008 but he pushed me from one stage to the other,” he concluded.

However, Samini’s unwavering support and guidance propelled him from one stage to another, amplifying his presence and setting the stage for his subsequent success.
