Popular Ghanaian musician Martin King Arthur known on stage as Kofi Kinaata has advised Ghanaians not to be hard on themselves and for that matter shouldn’t take life seriously.
To him, life isn’t a world cup that needs to be taken seriously because he takes things in life normal and easy.
Speaking on an Accra-based radio station, the award-winning musician said he is able to cheer himself up when he is down due to the fact that he does not take life to heart.
“Life is not a ‘World Cup’. You shouldn’t be too serious in life and say life must be this way or that way, whatever will be; just do your part [because] there’s more to life that you don’t know.”
“For example, who are you? Why are you here? Where will you go from here? What can you do here? Where are you from?”
“All these questions we don’t have answers to, so, life is full of mysteries. That is why it is not supposed to be taken too seriously.”
“At the end of the day, be cool with everybody, life is not World Cup, the tomorrow we talk about is not even promised.”
“People have plans for tomorrow and do not even live to see that tomorrow so take life easy, don’t worry too much, be happy.”
