Kofi B’s life story would not be complete without Ofori Amponsah’s role in it. From discovering the late Highlife legend to producing great back to back hits together, there is no doubt that Ofori Amponsah played a pivotal role in the life of late Eric Kofi Boakye Yiadom.

Not only do they have similarities in music but also hail from Asante Akyem Agogo. Perhaps the reason for their strong bond at that time.

The late highlife legend, in what is believed to be his last interview with Kumawood actor Papa Kumasi even admitted that the name “Kofi B” was given to him by his then-boss, Ofori Amponsah.

Here is the most intriguing part, ‘The Agogo brothers’ even at a point began to sound the same.

There were some songs that up to date people still argue that it was sung by Ofori Amponsah though it was originally recorded by the late Kofi B.

Let’s take a look at such songs below

Yaw Dompre

Released in the year 2012, Yaw Dompre was originally written by Ofori Amponsah. It was one of the songs which found its way to the Return of Kofi B album at that time. However, by just listening to the audio, one might get confused with whether the voice is that of Ofori Amponsah of the late Kofi B.
