Last week, news came out that hiplife artiste, Kofi Kinaata and his management, High Grade Family, had parted ways after a five-year relationship and from all indications, the decision was a mutual one.

Now Kofi Kinaata is putting himself out there as he tells Showbiz that all he needs is a serious manager who would push his career to the next level.

“ I really don’t need a manager with a lot of money but a serious minded manager who understands me and has good plans for me,” the Confessions hitmaker said in an interview last Friday.

According to him, had money been his motivation, he would not have been with the High Grade Family because he had very good offers from well off people before he signed with High Grade.

“I always tell people that money is not everything. I would prefer a broke manager who has connections and believes in my dream to a rich manager who doesn’t have any connection,” he said.

On whether there were some labels he was considering joining, Kinaata said a number of people had suggested Zylofon Media to him. “If the terms and conditions with Zylofon Media are cool, why not, I will gladly move there.”


He was however certain that he won’t be going back to High Grade although he was grateful for the time he spent with them.

“I won 15 local and international awards through High Grade Family but for now our contract is over and I have moved on. I don’t think I would like to go back,” he said.

Talking about his music, Kofi Kinaata, who is known for other popular songs like Sweetie Pie, Susuka, Time No Dey, Made In Taadi and Oh Azaay said he hopes to do better this year.

“I released a couple of songs such as Single and Free and Last Show last year but they did not get much attention. This year will be fantastic because I am collaborating with other musicians on a number of songs,” he stated.
