VGMA 2020: Cina Soul’s cinematic visual for “Killi Mi” wins her first award
Ghanaian afro-pop songstress and songwriter Christie Quincyna Quarcoopome, known in Ghana hosw business as Cina Soul, has registered her name in the list of winners for the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards.
Cina Soul, 24, won the only nomination with her cinematic visual for her song, “Killi Mi”.
She conquered strong competitors like RJZ, EL, Joel B, Epixode, Becca, Kuami Eugene, and Celestine Donkor to grab her first ever VGMA accolade.
“Killi Mi” is Cina Soul’s major single released last year. The song comes with powerful visuals, in which we see a physically and emotionally abusive relationship unfold.
The video takes viewers through a range of emotions including love, hate, infatuation, power, obsession, anger, and passion as it knits together the story of a woman’s struggle to break free from a toxic cycle. The video stays true to the afro-centric vibe we expect from the song, in its sets, scenes, and styling.
