Samini went above and beyond, securing performance opportunities for Kinaata, even at shows where he wasn’t initially scheduled to perform.

Kinaata recalled an unforgettable moment, stating, “When Chris Brown came to Ghana, I was now in Accra, and Samini brought me to the stage to perform for 4 or 5 minutes. Shows I wasn’t billed to perform, even though he got me to perform. Samini gave me a lot of exposure.”

While Kofi Kinaata has been actively involved in rap and music since 2008, he emphasized that Samini’s guidance and support were instrumental in propelling his career forward.
