“Daddy Lumba, Amakye Dede Not My Competitors” – Kojo Antwi
Kojo Antwi says Daddy Lumba, Amakye Dede not my competitor and I see no reason why there should be. Each one of us has their very own unique brand and as they always say, no one gets extra point for competing with someone. Life is no race.
The hi-life legend, Kojo Antwi undoubtedly is best at what he does. He has wowed his fans consistently with good music, settling lyrics and sterling performances.
Kojo wants anyone who cares to know that he has never had the thought in all he does as competing with Daddy Lumba or Amakye Dede and thus is not because he has no interest in competition but he has his eyes other artistes.
Speaking with Nana Romeo on Accra FM’s ‘Ayekoo Ayekoo’ show , he said :
You wanted to ask whether I’m in a competition with Daddy Lumba and Amakye Dede or not. My target since the inception of my career has always been to be one of the topmost musicians in Africa so Salif Keita, Youssou N’Dour and Angélique Kidjo are the ones I’ll compete with.”
Even if I don’t get to that level, I want to be in the middle because that has always been my target.
My policy in life is always to aim higher so even when you fall, you will not hit the floor but be in the middle.
I have never made anyone in Ghana my target. I call any artiste I see in the crowd at my show to perform because I don’t feel that there is a competition.”
