Kakayi by Kojo Antwi

Kojo Antwi
Here is one of my favourite jams, those that remind you of a candlelit cuddly evening….mmmhhmm; it’s just there. For those that used to love RnB (choxerians, sio Rice n Beans) the likes of Luther Vandross, Barry White, KC n Jojo. Here’s a son of the land, doing better than those before him. I loooovvee Mr Kojo Antwi, he calls himself Mr Musicman and many other titles I can’t remember from the top of my head, but I’ll add them after I watch that one video where he states them all.
Hope you enjoy the song….I bet you’ll love it even without the lyrics, but they help you understand what’s going on. The music is in twi.
