“Things Fall Apart” hitmaker, Kofi Kinaata says he chose to the name ‘Kinaata’ instead of using his surname ‘King Arthur’ because he wasn’t sure of what he wanted to do.
According to him, keeping his surname in the showbiz circles would have been bad for his family if he had failed at what he wanted to do.
He made this known when he was interviewed on Joy FM, Monday.
Kofi mentioned that his father is a strict disciplinarian who will not have forgiven him if he used the surname and brought shame to the family.
So in order for him to have an escape route, he rather chose to be called Kofi Kinaata instead of King Arthur in the showbiz circles.
