Kofi Laing is gradually warming himself into the hearts of Ghanaians as the Creator, Producer and Director of #GhanaSpeaks on Joy Prime and Joy News.
After the release and success of his last documentary under #GhanaSpeaks titled “Kenkey Girl To Cover Girl”, Kofi took a break to visit his family in the UK.
He is due back in Ghana and obviously on a new project. What next for the man that tagged himself the “Classic Man”? GhanaGist.Com caught up with him to speak on what he has planned next.
GhanaGist: Kofi Laing firstly, congratulations on the success of the Kenkey Girl To Cover Girl.
Kofi Laing: Thanks GhanaGist.
GhanaGist: Did you expect it to get the overwhelming reviews it got?
Kofi Laing: Not really….it was my first attempt at Producing, Directing and writing my own documentary, so was quite unsure what reaction I will get, but what really worked was how people like any story that gives back to others who are not so well off.
GhanaGist: So what’s next? Surely after this, the expectations of you will be high.
Kofi Laing: Very true, so I took a break to go back to the UK to see my family. I just don’t want to rush my next project.
GhanaGist: Tell us more. What’s coming up?
Kofi Laing: Well at the moment I want to focus on my radio show on Joy 99.7FM for the next 2 weeks and excited about a tribute I am paying to Joe Thomas on the 20th. I will begin shooting the next short documentary after this.
GhanaGist: Any hints on what it’s about?
Kofi Laing: I can’t tell you otherwise I will have to kill you…hahahahah…..no seriously. It’s still focusing on people on the street as that’s what #GhanaSpeaks is about and I hope it’s better than Kenkey Girl To Cover Girl,…hmmm …no pressure on me.
GhanaGist: Okay, looking forward to it. What’s the expected release date?
Kofi Laing: Maybe end of November. And yes GhanaGist will be one of the first to be informed I promise.
GhanaGist: Good to hear. Keep me posted and hope it all goes well.
Kofi Laing: Thank you.
