He later enrolled at Supreme Media Training College in Techiman, trained as a radio presenter, but his mother who is an evangelist was not in support of his interest of becoming a radio presenter, she initially opposed his decision to venture into broadcasting because she believes most media practitioners are womanizers and wouldn’t want him to follow suit, though Kofi was a church goer but was very much hopeful that if giving the opportunity in radio he will use it as a platform for the kingdom work someday.

Kofi Asante is a member of the Leviticus singing choir at the Redemption Assemblies of God Church.
Baba God is his first single part of a full album titled ADONAI which exudes praises to the most High God for the transformation in his hitherto tainted life.
The danceable contemporary urban gospel song which has taken over the airwaves by storm is sung in a blend of Pidgin English and Twi.
The song tells the story of how he has been picked out of the gutter regardless of his iniquities and tainted past and been made a new creation to pursue the kingdom business, buttressing the point that everyone can also be touched by God.
The music admonishes individuals to be steadfast in the Lord for his mercies forever endures in the life of every human being adding that faith and believe in God’s word is the only recipe for living a better life.
