One of Ghana’s fast-rising musicians Koo Ntakra has released “3soro ho ” which he dedicates to his core fans on the Akuapem ridge.
Koo Ntakra first performed this song internationally at the just ended Midem Festival in France, where he represented Ghana and was the opening act of the concert held at Carlton Beach.
Born Isaac Akuffo, stage name Koo Ntakra, meaning ‘feathers’ in his native language, is a hiplife, rap and poetic artiste, rapping in his mother tongue of Akuapem, considered to many as one of the multifaceted young rappers due to his versatility in the music circles. He is considered as one of the major proponents of the ‘Akuapem Rap’. Koo Ntakra soared to the lime light after being crowned the champion of the annual MTN Hitmaker Reality TV music contest, beating over thousands who entered into the competition in 2013. In 2013, after winning the reality show, he got his first taste of prominence when he was featured on the prestigious ‘Legends & Legacy Ball’ concert performing alongside high life great AB Crentsil and other big names in the industry in front of the former president of Ghana, H.E John Kuffour .
Koo went on that year to record with one of Nigeria’s rising stars Wondaboy, which later featured on his debut Akuaba album the following year. His collaborations with some of the big names in the industry gained him the opportunity to share the same stage with international arts including Davido, Patoranking, Wizkid, among others from Nigeria, as well as BET Award winner, Sarkodie , Kojo Antwi, Daddy Lumba, Samini and many more big names from Ghana.
