Nino – The Biography

 

NINO MY FRIEND

“Like the way he grabs the mic…with lots of style, and powerful notes to strike…Ready to make all and sundry falls for it and like…so is his lifestyle…Intertwined with perseverance to reach for the best and humor to make you sigh…In simple words, he’s got a unique profile…one that Ghanamusic is yet to see.” 

At a very tender age Agyemang Kofi Offeh’s (known in show biz as NINO) love for music captured his heart and mind; he was so engrossed in it that even when playing football with friends, he will be singing alongside. His concentration was on the notes instead but not the ball. Music was and is still his cherished hobby and talent. Little did he know that his cherished hobby (music/singing) will one day become a sort after (sacred and scarce) ‘commodity’ of man? He grew up mastering his talent with less difficulty because music was like brushing the teeth.

Nino’s hobby and talent came to the limelight when he joined the Adventist Prep School choir; he was one of the best soloists to have appeared in that choir. Before leaving the school as a Junior High School graduate, he represented Kumasi in the year 2002-2003, and was adjudged the best singer at the national choral competition. Nino has since that time become very vital and a force to reckon with in every choir he joins.
