Gospel musician, Kofi Owusu Dua Anto (KODA), has released his sixth album, ‘Keteke’. The all-around album, premiered on the first day of 2021 on all music platforms, is receiving rave reviews from music lovers and critics.
Prior to the album release, KODA had undertaken a coordinated campaign on social media which included live videos with resource persons discussing different topics bordering on Christianity, the music industry, and life in general. The singer also posted a series of video messages from the album’s featured artistes and production team, all to give fans a feel of how the new album will sound like.
He also released two prelude singles of the album – ‘Aseda’, and the confessional praise jam, ‘Game Over’, which featured Nigerian gospel musician, Eben.
‘Keteke’ is a reference to the rickety train that paraded the western coastal lines of Takoradi (western Ghana) to Kumasi in the 70s and 80s. KODA draws a parallel between the eventful ‘Keteke’ rides of his childhood and life events into a music project he believes will resonate with everyone.
The 12-track album features Pastor Joe Beechem, Joe Mettle, Harmonious Chorale, LIC Choir, Abigail Nkansah, Jumbo, and Eben.
The producers of the album include Francis Kweku Osei (Percussions, Drums & Horns) arrangements, Moise Atta (on Aseda), and KODA himself. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by KODA’s Koded Studios in Takoradi, Ghana.
As part of the album’s promotion, KODA appeared as a guest on Citi FM’s Brunch in the Citi, where he shared his journey from a band guitarist to a solo artist.
