Kofi Boakye with his son, Nana Kobby
OVER THE weekend, Police Superintendent Kofi Sarpong, a popular gospel musician, was spotted by the cameras of NEWS-ONE, cruising in town with one of his three children.
The musician said the boy, Nana Kobby Sarpong, is his second child. The last one, he revealed, was born on July 24, 2012, the very day President Atta Mills died but this news has been kept from the public.
It has always been reported by the media that Kofi Sarpong is married to a lovely woman by name Salomey, a very private person who does not want to be in the public eye and that they have three children.
?Oh three is enough. If God has blessed us with three children, why should we ask for more? So I can say yes, we stopped making babies after the third one,? Kofi Sarpong said this when NEWS-ONE asked him when he would have another child.
The award-winning Police Officer, NEWS-ONE gathered, has decided to put a hold on the release of his third album because the second one, ?Agyenkwa? is still making waves.
?I was advised that releasing the third one now would take the shine off the second album, the ?Borborbor? one, which is still doing fine on the market. So I had to slow down the third album a bit,? he revealed.
Kofi Sarpong indeed has a herculean task combining his duties as a senior Police Officer with that of a leading gospel musician and an award-winning one for that matter.
He is arguably one of the gospel musicians with the fastest growing fan base in Ghana now.
His ?Agyenkwa? album became an instant hit soon after its release.
It has unique traditional ?borborbor? rhythms from the Volta Region and a compilation of soul-touching melody with a couple of danceable tunes.
The police officer won Gospel Song of the Year award with his debut ?Meto Ndwom?, and has consistently maintained his reputation as one of the most celebrated gospel musicians in Ghana and a toast of music concerts throughout the country.
His presence on the music scene has played a significant role in strengthening police-civilian relationship and he has become an unofficial goodwill ambassador for the Ghana Police Service.
Superintendent Kofi Sarpong is under the record label of Media Excel Production, managed by Ernest Kwasi Ennin.
