Published

Although Kofi Owusu Dua Anto popularly as KODA has carved a niche for himself as one of the best male voices on the Gospel music circuit, he tells Showbiz that he would rather choose production over singing if he is given a choice.

KODA is the owner of KODED Studios based in Takoradi and has over the years worked with artistes like Nii Okai, Joe Mettle, Danny Nettey, Pastor Joe Beecham, Daughters of Glorious Jesus, Diana Hamilton, Calvis Hammond among others.

“If I am asked to choose between producing music for other musicians and singing, I would be producing music. The satisfaction in producing different beats for different musicians gives me joy. Sometimes I wonder how I am able to do it for all these number of years,” he told Showbiz on Sunday, July 14.

According to KODA, although singing has become part of him, the happiness in seeing artistes he has produced for succeed brings him a lot of satisfaction.

“For example I was competing with Diana Hamilton and Joe Mettle for Gospel Song of the Year at theVGMA for productions I worked on but hey I was okay Diana won because the same credit comes to me,” he said.

When Showbiz asked his view on collaborating with secular artistes, KODA, who is known for songs like HosannaNkwa AbodooAdoosoW'aye WiePoma among others, said he was not comfortable with that.

“The direction I want to go with my songs are different from that of a secular artiste so I don’t think I will be comfortable to feature any secular artiste on my song.

“I am someone who is very particular about the message I put on my songs because of where I stand. I am always careful what I put out and this is the reason most people love my songs,” he said.

KODA has five albums to his credit and is currently working on his sixth album which he says will be ready soon.
