The inspiring Kumerican rapper took a gigantic leap from one nomination last year to whooping seven nominations this year.

Speaking with Cookie Tee on New Day, he said, “It’s a great feeling because looking at last year, that was my first entry. Last year I came in as unsung. This year, grabbing 7 nominations and being in the same space with my fellow Kumerican. I think this is the time that Kumasi got the chance to break through. And I am proud to be part of the squad representing out here.”

According to Kofi, his family, especially his mum, is very proud of him. He says she gets euphoric when people signal her out in town as Kofi Jamar’s mother.

He said, “She is always happy. She is always beaming with smiles. And I can tell that she is really proud of what I have been able to accomplish. It gives me the fulfilment that I have been the pride of my family. And the pride of my people too.”

Kofi Jamar is part of the Kumasi revolution that introduced the Kumerican movement and subsequently the Asakaa (drill music). To vote for Kofi Jamar, Text UN5 to 176 for any of the categories.
