Music Maestro Julius Kojo Antwi has been announced as the recipient of the 2014 edition of the annual Legends & Legacy Ball.

Despite various speculations in 2013 that but for some technicalities Kojo should have been the recipient, he confirmed to NEWS-ONE that even though he was approached by the organisers last year, this was the best time to be named legend.

“It took me a year to prepare for this. Everything that I do, I prepare ahead of it; and I knew this was coming. For me, it was like getting a stamp on a letter when I was chosen; it made it more official. Good things come to those who wait. This is the best time for me. This is an institution; they have their plans and arrangements. For me, I’m looking at now and the future, so forget about the past,” he stated.

Legends & Legacy Ball is an annual event aimed at paying homage to music legends who have churned out good tunes over the years, and have made Ghana’s music industry what it is today.
Imajin Advertising Company, organisers of the event, officially announced Kojo Antwi as the receiver last Thursday at an unveiling event at Oak Plaza Hotel in Accra.

The main event, slated for November 1 at the Accra International Conference Centre, will have some young talents like Samini, Edem and Bisa Kdei sharing stage with the ‘Tom and Jerry’ hit maker.
Mr Music Man, as he is popularly known among his fans, disclosed that he felt good that among all the pioneers who equally deserved to be honoured by this country, his name came up.

“It feels good to be honoured by your country. This is Ghanaians doing it for themselves.  I believe a whole lot of my pioneers deserve to be on this platform. But right now, this is what God wrote in my book,” he said.

Kojo Antwi has won several awards locally and internationally, namely, All Africa Music Awards, Our Music Award, Kora Award, and West Africa Tourism Award among others.
The event was graced by personalities like MUSIGA president Bice Osei Kufour, MTN officials, A.B. Crentsil and Anita Owusu among others.

Since the ‘Legends &Legacy Ball’ started in 2010, highlife kings Daddy Lumba and Amakye Dede have been honoured.
