Get the lowdown on Kofi Deshaun
February 8, 2017

Url: http://www.musicmoneypr.com

Kofi Daeshaun is a Ghanaian born musician currently based in Virginia, USA. He has been doing household hiphop music for years.

Kofi Daeshaun attended exclusive preparatory and private boarding schools till he graduated the Ivy-league styled University of Ghana. He then moved to New York City where he earned an MBA degree at St. John’s University in Queens. He also enlisted in the US Army in 2002 where he became a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Kofi Daeshaun narrated a story of having to always postpone his musical ambitions by ceding priority to either pursue higher education or enlisting in the US Army. His parents also kept his musical ambitions bottled up because his more talented older brother Jonas was always the one-stop shop for music, dance, gymnastics and acting. There was only one room for a music star growing up in the household and Jonas was just way more talented at the time.

However, the songs kept coming and Kofi could not ignore all the creative ideas that kept tugging at him when he fell asleep at night. As an Army war veteran battling anxiety, he would fall asleep only to wake up drenched in sweat with a song playing in his mind.

The persistent middle of the night nightmares wrapped up in musical creativity presented a scenario where Kofi bought a recorder and started filtering out his musical ideas and nightmares at night on a recorder.

A self-professed library rat, Kofi Daeshaun began developing upon the musical melodies that will haunt him in his sleep at night at a local library in suburban Northern Virginia. He stated that he would like to contribute to building a better library one day because he has a habit of occasionally blurting out words as he wrote them down in the library and ends up disturbing a few library patrons in the process. Coming from Ghana by way of New York City, Kofi Daeshaun’s music is a funky mix of rock, pop choruses, hip-hop, reggae and a general inability to follow laid down convention. His music is a cocktail of several influences and he sings as well as he raps.

As a Saint John’s University graduate school alumni, there are times when the Catholic school rebel manifests in his lyrics. Hailed by independent bloggers as a Grammy worthy rap category album, His album Ghetto Santa 2017 brings the good and bad served on one platter. His sophomore project, Ghetto Santa 2017 is a departure from his more introspective and politically charged previous forays into music.

Ghetto Santa 2017 presents a more mature, less rigid format with Kofi Daeshaun focusing on his more melodic side. This reveals a fun and well-rounded musical artist at the expense of his more lyrical rigid past. His ability to mesh great lyrical word play with every day fun melodies is what makes this new album a standout and peerless in its uniqueness.
