Kojo Antwi has once again indeed proven to be a world music icon of Ghanaian heritage when he dazzled thousands of fans in the Holy Land of Israel over the weekend.

Kojo joined the Hebrew Israelite community of Dimona as they celebrated their annual New World Passover; a season celebrated to commemorate their arrival at the shores of Israel after the group left America in the 1960s, where they felt captive.

Kojo Antwis visit to the Holy Land was upon a distinct invitation from the leader of the Hebrew Israelite community, His Excellency Ben Ammi Ben.

Despite the short notice and the absence of his own band, Mr Music Man as he is also known, still displayed his craft and thrilled the community with his unique blend of Ghanas highlife, Africas Soukous, Caribbean lovers rock, a splash of Afro-American Soul and R&B.

He was the only Ghanaian artiste among the few artistes from all over the world to perform at the two-day celebration.

Aside his performance, Kojo Antwi also took time to interact with indigenes and visited the various biblical sites in Jerusalem and around the community.

I was fascinated by the culture of the people and the various biblical tourist sites. It was a life- changing experience especially my time with the leader. It was very deep. My relationship with them has become more intimate. Dimona has become a second home now.

He also added that plans have been put in place made to host his own concert in The Holy Land of Israel very soon.

In a related development, The Maestro is reported to be putting finishing touches to a joint with Daddy Lumba to serve Ghanaian music lovers with their first ever collaboration. He also disclosed that Nigerian artiste; J Martins was featured in his upcoming album which is slated for release sooner than later.

When asked if he has any plans of retiring, the Maestro had this response;

When it comes to creativity, you cant retire. You will do different things at different times, different stages but I believe they will come a time when Ill be doing a lot of free shows. Because Im getting to a point where Ill just mount the stage and perform for free. Its not all is about money.
