Brong Ahafo based musician and Obiato hitmaker Nana Kwame Gyabaah well known as Kooko has been signed by a traditional priest Nana Moosi Bansere.
The signing ceremony which took place at Eusbett Hotel in Sunyani saw a number of media personalities.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com, Kooko revealed the bizarre circumstances that led to his meeting with the traditional priest who has eventually turned to be his new boss.
“So Nana Moosi Bansere (who I had never met in my life) walked to me on January 13 2018 after an event in Techiman and asked that I meet him after my performance. I obliged and went to him. He spoke so much about me and told me how a number of musicians had brought me to him to spiritually tie my career.”
According to him (Nana Moosi Bansere), he went ahead with their request because they mentioned Kwabena Nana (my household name) which he didn’t know until later when he found out. He also revealed a lot to me including scary dreams I had had in the past few months. That’s when I believed him.
He prayed for me and promised to support my career since he was proud of me. That’s how come he has signed me today. I’m signed to my own record label BAM Nation. However Nana Moosi Bansere will now lead as the CEO.
Asked if he was aware of the musicians who carried out the act, Kooko said, “I earnestly asked him but he wouldn’t tell me. All he said is that he would let the individuals come back to apologise to me”
Kooko believes the signing is a new step in the right direction and is confident his career will soar again.
Since dropping a hit single Obiato, Kooko has recorded with other artists including Guru, Lilwin and Yaa Pono.
