Kofi Daeshaun

Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience.

My real name is Joseph Teye-Kofi. I was born in Ghana and I grew up in a predominantly Catholic community and attended all boy’s catholic boarding schools.

Tell us about your music career, band name, musical background, experience and skills.

I am basically a solo act. I write, sing, rap and basically tackle every musical genre as I deem fit. I buy beats online and I record myself in my home studio. I do a little editing and then I send the pro tools sessions to Christopher “CL” McCleron in Texas for final mixing and mastering. I used to be in a group with my older brother years ago. I also grew up in a bar where music was always being played or performed.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song.

The song is basically asking for my engagement ring back because the relationship with “Araba” (a female name in Ghana) fell through. I am heart-broken and acting on impulse. The song is sung in English and Twi (a Ghanaian language).

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business.

Every musician has had their numerous downs in their musical journey. I do not dwell on the lows. I would still do music even if no one listened. I wake up happy or sad and I write songs to reflect my journey and growth on earth.

.

 

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot.

I normally shoot music videos with my son as the video director. Bruce Teye-Kofi is his name and he is in business school as a freshman in college.

.

.

 

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal.

I have always been involved in music either directly or indirectly. From following DJs around as a kid to paying for studio time to record a song as a high school kid.

.

.

.

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing.

Life happens and I use that as inspiration to write, compose and sing.

.

.

.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song.

I believe the key lies in being true to self and not blindly copying trends and popular artists. A true musician should never get desperate during the creative process. Remain calm and keep things simple in the mix.

.

.

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there.

More love and stay peaceful out there. Keep an open heart even for things you do not agree with.

.

.

.

 

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist.

Be true to self and learn to identify constructive criticism. When it’s all said and done, your music should reflect you.

.

.

.

 

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained.

This song is a single on my fourth studio album titled Pedigree slated for February 2018 release. My previous albums were titled Grim Tales, Ghetto Santa 2017 and Trap House Redemption. All albums are available on all online streaming platforms.

List Radio or TV Stations that are airing your songs and blogs that have featured you as well and send message to them via this platform.

KRXM radio and a Canadian online radio station have shown interest in my music. I am thankful to this blog for the opportunity to spread and share my music.

.

 

Tell us how you write your lyrics, compose, sing and record in the studio.

Writing comes to me naturally. I struggle with keeping things simple but I am maturing at the songwriting process. I record alone in my home studio early weekend mornings. I have the whole process well-rehearsed.

Tell us how you will spend a million dollars.
