‘They will insult my mother’ – Kofi Kinaata on why he may never enter politics

Celebrated highlife musician Martin King Arthur popularly known as Kofi Kinaata, has disclosed that he may never try to become a politician because he can’t stand the verbal abuse that may be extended to his parents.

According to him,politics in his hometown is not based on facts.

“They will insult my mother so I beg you to leave me out of politics because in my hometown where I come from politics isn’t about facts.

“What you are saying might be true about a certain issue and everyone knows it’s true but because of partisanship they’ll say it’s not true.

“Insulting me personally won’t bother me much but extending it to my parents who might have lived a life that no family member of yours can come closer to but because I’m into politics that’s why you’ll insult them.”

The Takoradi-born musician indicated that he would rather concentrate on his music career than enter active partisan politics because he doesn’t have the heart for it.
