Kojo Antwi is a famed musician in Ghana who has consistently earned the admiration of music lovers with his good music.
‘Mr. Music Man’ (as he’s affectionately called) is versatile and refuses to be boxed into a particular genre.
His music cuts across, reggae, highlife, Afropop, soul, R&B, among others.
Kojo’s music career started by playing with the band Boomtalents. Later, he became the front-man of Classique Vibes, formerly known as Classique Handles.
Eventually, Kojo went solo. His first solo album, ‘All I Need is You,’ which was released in 1986, became a chart buster in Ghana.
He is the immediate past chairman of the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO).
Some of his songs include ‘Amrika,’ ‘Tattoo,’ ‘Adiepena,’ ‘Meedware,’ ‘Groovy, ‘Densu,’ among others.
