“I’m the king of love songs”, highlife maestro Kojo Antwi proclaims in his latest single Supremo.
Revered for such classics as Densu, Tom And Jerry, Dadie Anomaa, and Adiepena, the pronouncement is widely-held in Ghana and beyond. It would appear though, based on some references he makes in the record (like Bob Marley’s “who the cap fits, let him wear it”), that he is aiming jabs at an industry rival.
The Kaywa-produced song also sees Antwi compare himself with other world greats as Cristiano Ronaldo, Muhammed Ali, Michael Jackson among others.
With a remarkable 22 albums to his credit, and many laurels including West Africa Tourism Award, All Africa Music Awards, Kora Award, and the Our Music Award under his belt, Kojo Antwi is a trusted authority in Ghanaian music.
Born Julius Kojo Antwi, the Afro pop, highlife and reggae icon first released a music album in 1986, and his latest album Mwaah!, was released in 2009.
Supremo is Kojo Antwi’s first offering in a significant while. Listen below:
