Kofi Kinaata, the Ghanaian Highlife musician has released a song with visuals to sensitise people on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic as well as the symptoms and safety precautions.
Mainly centred on the fisherfolk in Ghana, the project was shot at the seashore, with support from the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquaculture Development, Fisheries Commission, Ghana National Canoe Fishermen Council, National Fish Processors and Traders Association, the University of Rhode Island and USAID.
The message carried in the song was beautifully woven in the Fante, Nzema, Ga and Ewe languages, together with English subtitles to aid understanding.
The video was directed by Director Abbass, with sound production credits to Two Bars.
Known in real life as Martin King Arthur, Kofi Kinaata is well known for his excellent songwriting skills and a 3-times ‘Song Writer of the Year’ winner at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs).
