Quamina MP on Kojo Manuel's 'A Mad Culture'

While behind the bar and making a cocktail (a concoction of his own) for himself and the host, the Ghanaian musician got real to speak on never-discussed topics about his life, catapulting into the universe of mainstream amapiano, his upcoming album, and more.

Talking about his 'Choco' song with Kelvyn Boy, Kojo Manuel said 'it's one of my favorite songs, but I feel like it didn't quite hit the spot for people," and asked that "does it hurt when you make a song that's really good, but it doesn't become as big as it's supposed to be?"

In reply, Quamina MP said "yo that song is very good, it's a really good song. Even before we released that song, we all felt like the song was hard. Cause' if you hear the song, if you listen to it, you'll know that it's a good song. But I wouldn't say it hurts. That's how it is. I mean, you can't force it. You do your best and expect it to get big but if it doesn't, you don't have to blame anybody".


Commenting on producing 'Kenkey Seller' banger, Quamina MP revealed that "right now I don't really produce much. I used to do more of the production. I would produce the beat and I would get the vibe, but these days I don't do that much production. But even with that, my upcoming album has about six or seven songs produced by me".

He continued that "the truth is, it was supposed to come out this month, but there is more work that needs to go into it. Sometimes it's a case of “I feel like I should have this song, or take the other one out.” We keep going back and forth. Sometimes too it's like "I love this song, can you put it on the album?" When it comes to the features too, sometimes you can wait for the feature and it doesn't come through.

The 'Ewiase Ye De' singer who lost his father last year was asked how losing his dad has changed him and he disclosed that "I still haven't figured out some things, you know? I feel it doesn't really go away".

"I try to be very strong. I know that I'm a very strong boy. I feel like it's done a lot, because I feel like my energy these days compared to my energy from before is not the same. I didn't realize until I met people who were telling me things like "your energy is down, I see that you're slow.”


“Sometimes you look worried." Things like that. That was when I realized that it was showing, and that I was really thinking about my dad, about what happened. One thing that inspires me is, even though he is not alive, he would still want me to keep pushing," he said.
