Hot new songstress Kati G says she does not find music a platform to compete with other musicians.
She, as a result, does not see herself as competition to Ghanaian female musicians like Efya, Becca, Kaaki or Eazzy.
Speaking in an interview with NEWS-ONE, she said “music is a universal language I chose to learn and develop. I was born creative and through music I have become a powerful weapon that connects to hearts automatically. I don’t use my gift of creativity to compete; I use it to make a universal impact that touches lives.”
“I am just doing music; I am not competing. I do music and I love it,” she added.
Born Catherine Eno Adutchummwa Owusu-Sakyi, she is known by her stage name Kati G. She is a Ghanaian singer, songwriter, record producer, cellist and vocal actress.
She was born to a Ghanaian mother and father. At the age of eight, Catherine began her music career when she decided to learn how to play the cello and clarinet. The following year, she decided to focus on specialising in one of the instruments.
The instrument she chose was the cello. Within the next 15 years, she groomed herself into a cellist.
Although she studied the cello for many years, her passion for music also pushed her to pursue skills in rapping, singing, composing and producing music.
Those musical talents of hers eventually gained her admission into Berklee College of Music.
