Not all paths in life lead immediately to their destination. Sometimes you have to go tedious detours, through one-way streets, finds himself in narrow streets and perhaps in between the feeling that there is absolutely no longer goes on at a certain point. Just as a paved path with obstacles has also Ado Kojo behind. On his new album "travel X"Tells the R 'n' B Shooting Star from near Cologne now. Of his personal development is one of the most exciting artists in the German music scene

David Shirin)"The singer has gained an excellent reputation in the domestic r`n B and hip-hop community with the Ghanaian roots, cracked the German YouTube Charts at # 1 and the single charts at number 6. By now recorded the video almost 14 million views on YouTube. Ado Kojo was as celebrated support with his longtime colleague Eko Fresh tour flashed the masses to open air as the Helene Beach Festival, the Splash! and was recently seen live before more than 15,000 spectators at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne at the Video Days. And at least since his duet with teen star Mike Singer on "My heart"(Nearly 80,000 YouTube views) counts Ado Kojo to the hottest acts in Germany. But that was not always so.
Early on the son of a German mother and a product originating in Ghana father has need to learn to fight to the top. Ado Kojo grew with his mother and his sister up in modest circumstances and began at an early age, to seek his own path. The childhood in his neighborhood had a great impact on the adolescent who has experienced during his youth a lot. Not only beautiful, as he tells us in his new album "Travel X". "I grew up with little, we had at our home never much," said Ado recalls. Influenced by his father's record collection with slices of reggae icon Bob Marley and Ghanaian music and of course the clips on VIVA was it already clear that he wanted to be a singer someday. "As a little boy my parents I have always taken to reggae concerts In a show I suddenly disappeared -. They found me later backstage with the musicians again where I made the first experiences with real instruments, where actually all started.. "
Today Ado Kojo is a real perfectionist when it comes to his music. "Future R'n'B" he calls himself its authentic, unverschnÖrkelte mix of R'n'B, pop, soulful, a little hip-hop and of course, its incomparable velvet voice with which he already national as well as international rap acts such as Eko Fresh, Farid Bang, Al-Gear or Erick Sermon could draw attention to themselves and attract highly acclaimed collaborations ashore. In "Travel X" told Ado Kojo now his story (s): From the journey into the unknown and of slowly to take courage, leaves the audience leaves in his diary set to music and share his artistic and personal development. "Travel X" is Ados very own lesson how to turn anger into creativity, aggression into positive energy and hopelessness in productivity! "I used a lot of screwed up," said Ado friend about the foundation and the inspiration to "travel X". "At some point I realized that I so could not go on and finally had to follow the straight path I have my life then completely changed and I just focused on what mattered most to me was:.. My Music With this album have I understood many things. I am very proud of what I made. And I can sleep much better now. Ever since I was 15, I could not sleep because of my bad conscience ... "
Sleeping is not to "travel X" course. On the contrary. Almost 24 hours a day spent Ado Kojo during shooting day in his self-built basement studio to exorcise the ghosts that he called in the past few years even. To finish with the past, to write certain things of the soul and finally completely start over. he was energetic vocal reinforcement of the crème de la crème of the German HipHop scene; especially MCs like Eko Fresh, Summer Cem, MoTrip, Elmo, murder weapon, Capkekz, Caput, Sinan G, Solid, ApeCrime, Ali As, Serc and others. "All the guys I've known forever and with whom I like to slopes" said Ado Kojo. "I think they have that tracks transformed into something very special. I had Eko Fresh invited to Listening Session. While running the songs, he has not said a word and moved straight face. Slowly I was really nervous, why he say nothing can. When the record was finished, he said then completely thrilled that he never heard such a thing in German would have and the stuff really cool find dignity! "
Cohesion, one of the great Tags on "Travel X". And a motto under which also the track "West Side (feat. Eko Fresh, Summer Cem, MoTrip, Elmo, murder weapon, Capkekz, Caput, Sinan G) "Is, with the Ado Kojo his home state of North Rhine Westphalia and the local rap community pays tribute. On"Africano"He goes back to his roots, agrees with"Cheguevara (feat. Serc)"A song about having fun while listening makes before it with" "is serious. - A piece that has sad actuality these days" Freedom It's about justice. And the others, is the respect. I see myself as the voice of my generation. pure Party Sounds are too flat; are important to me clear messages. I'm not afraid to speak uncomfortable themes in my music. "And then of course there Ados Superhit, the acclaimed cover of Sabrina Setlurs"You do not love me". Including an almost unbelievable history." My tax consultant has FIVE years nothing worked for me. In a time in which I earned only vanishingly little money, she has always believed in me. I feilte on this album and still had no real hit in sight, as the radio in your office suddenly the original of `You love me ran nicht` - I immediately felt that I had to make my own version. So I sat down at night and recorded a version. I sent her on good luck Moses P. on Facebook who found absolutely great. I firmly Convinced that there is such a thing as fate or a path laid down. "
A way that Ado Kojo now with "Travel X" continues. With a clear goal in mind: "To the top I sacrificed extremely much and learned hard lessons I knew at the time of shooting is not where the journey goes I had no record deal and no real prospect Today I know that you fOr!... must its success to work hard. we may stumble or trip calm in life. one may fall or get lost. It is solely important that you get up again. Maybe you have to even make mistakes and go astray to evolve and clear to come up with certain situations in life. have experiences to move from the slippery slope back to the straight path. I want to give my fans with this album perspectives. ascribe courage. Each of us has talents, and qualities. and anyone can achieve anything if he wants! "
