Ghanaian highlife sensation Kofi Kinaata has raised alarms regarding the uncertain future faced by the youth of Takoradi in the Western region.

In a candid discussion on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen program, the musician expressed deep concern over the mass migration of young people seeking better opportunities elsewhere.

“I am not sure someone outside Ghana even knows there is a place called Western region but for the Takoradi people and myself who make noise through songs to put the area on the world map.

“Most of my age mates have left because there is no future. The only people you see are the little ones who are like my nieces and nephews who I am sure will also leave when they also grow up,” he bemoaned.

He highlighted the region’s challenges, noting that despite ongoing construction projects, the development doesn’t match the area’s resources.

Kinaata criticized the neglect felt by residents, emphasizing the absence of essential facilities like theaters for cultural events.
“I have seen that road constructions and others going on, but I don’t think the development much up to the resources from the area. At the moment, even if you want a place like a theatre to hold an event, there is none,” he added.

While passionate about his hometown, Kofi Kinaata admitted avoiding discussions on regional development due to emotional ties that might lead him to overstep boundaries.

His concerns reflect a broader issue of rural youth migration and the need for sustainable growth strategies in neglected areas.
