Kofi Kinaata rounded up the year by paying homage to Castro De Destroyer by flaunting his new shirt that has the image of the late Hiplife star embossed on it.
The Fante rapper’s introduction into the Ghanaian music industry was masterminded by Castro and he always acknowledges this fact in various interviews.
The Adam & Eve singer had previously revealed on Hitz FM that Castro was like a senior brother and mentor as he recalled their days in the same vicinity in Takoradi in the Western region.
“Those days when he performs in Takoradi, I go [and] cheer him up and so when he heard I had started rapping he linked me up, our relationship goes way back.”
Kinaata also revealed the last he heard of Castro. “A week before the Sunday of his disappearance, Castro called and accused me of not staying in touch but I explained I was busy shooting my ‘Asay’ video and after that I’ll call, all I heard was the news.”
Kofi Kinaata expressed his hope that Castro would be discovered alive and acknowledged the significant impact Castro had on his musical career.
“I was doing the rap you know, the rap is not (was not) commercial, you know, I have my fans, my underground fans who [want to] listen to a whole lot of rap but Castro took it to the next level.
“He took it to some other level. He introduced me to some kind of fans so I got a whole lot of fans. I got the moms and dads and some corporate people behind me [because] of what he did, the hi-life track we did ‘Odopa’.”
