Takoradi-based rapper and singer, Martin King Arthur, popularly known as Kofi Kinaata has vowed that he will never engage himself in any form of beef using his music career.
He acknowledged how successful his music career has been without banters with any industry player therefore he sees no reason to inculcate the act.
Beef or banter has in recent times become common in the showbiz industry where most artists fight fellow artists by throwing jabs at each other either on social media or by composing diss songs.
However, the highlife singer has thought otherwise and stated that maintaining his relevant status and projecting the good name of his family has been his focus.
Speaking to Cape Coast-based Kastle FM over the weekend in the central region, Kinaata explained that growing up his family never wanted to see him entangled in any form of quarrel or misunderstanding.
A reason, he revealed was a yardstick his parents tried to stop him from choosing music as a career.
But to convince them, the ‘Thy Grace’ crooner indicated that he was compelled to pledge to his parents that beef was going to be a thing of the past going forward.
“Due to where I come from, even going into the music industry was difficult. They [My parents] did not want to allow me because they felt they don’t want any dissing or quarrels.
“So it was some considered agreement and signing contracts to ensure that as for dissing songs, I won’t do, so they should allow me to do music and see the outcome.
“That is what has kept me up to this level, so I don’t do anything that leads to insults that will drag my mother’s name or father’s name into disrepute. I don’t engage in such things,” Kofi Kinaata told the host Amansan Krakye.
