Apart from its exceptionally strong romantic appeal, music by Kojo Antwi is also therapeutic.
Celebrated for his music excellence, Kojo Antwi, popularly known as ‘Mr Music Man’, has revealed that his songs helped get a lady out of a coma.
The man, who says he was sent by God to do music, revealed in an interview on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM with Daniel Dadzie that a lady confessed to him that his music helped her while she was in a coma.
“I met a lady who said she was in a coma and what her parents did was to have headphones on her and they kept playing my music to her while she was in the hospital because her parents knew she was so much into my music,” the ‘Adiepena’ hitmaker said.
Kojo Antwi added that “…she had those headphones [on] even though she couldn’t hear you, she couldn’t feel anything…as part of the treatment, they kept playing my music to her all the time. So she met me and [told] me the story.”
That was not the only occasion on which his music saved a life.
‘Mr Music Man’ said last year, an actor in Kumasi nearly committed suicide but “’Sikadam’ did magic,” prevented that from happening.
