What was meant to be the launch of Live From The Capital, Kofi Okyere Darko’s new show on Live 91.9FM, had an exciting twist when the station threw a 20th anniversary surprise for the showbiz impresario.

The night was filled with excitement at Rockstone’s office for the maiden edition of KOD’s show with hundreds of guests, family and well wishers. The night was characterized with live musical performances by Kwabena Kwabena, Dancehall Prince Episode and the new rap sensation 2fingers. Sammy B and KOD also took their turn and did a beautiful rendition of Bob Marley’s “I want to give you some love”. On the turntable was DJ Masta Jay, the official DJ of the show, doing what he does best.

In attendance were hundreds of people from all walks of life including Hon. Adu Asare (Swagga) from the Presidency, colleagues from the Media, D Black, Ghananaian Super Model Victoria Michaels and other influential personalities were special guests at the event.

A surprise celebration was held for Sammy Forson, host of Live FM’s drive time show Route919 who was celebrating his birthday and KOD, who is celebrating 20 years working in various capacities in the entertainment industry in Ghana.

KOD has in the last 20years been prominent in the entertainment industry and arguably the most sought after event host in Ghana, having hosted events like the Ghana Music Awards (and served on the planning committee for 3 years), Nescafé African Revelations (in West and Central Africa), Miss Malaika, Miss Ghana and Miss Ghana UK, the UN WAIPA convention in Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah’s centenary celebrations, TV3 Mentor and Hanging Out With KOD on GHOne TV to mention but a few.

He is presently the Marketing Manager with Live FM, Creative President at Nineteen57 (his clothing line).

KOD has over the years also been very active in the music industry, having managed and produced a cream of Ghana’s best like Wutah, Praye, Daasebre Gyamena, Ofori Amponsah, Tinny and Big Brother House mate Eazzy under his record label  Kapricorn, which he established before his 24th birthday.

KOD as he’s affectionately called, has no formal education in fashion designing. He is a gifted artist who did fine arts in secondary school and studied Communication at the Ghana Institute of Journalism. Like most people in the fashion industry, he sketched designs for tailors and his designer friends like Mawuli Kofi Okudzeto to make for him. KOD made his debut design on the continental platform when he designed an outfit for Kwaku T when he represented Ghana at Big Brother Africa in 2007.

A fashionista himself, KOD recently won the the Most Stylist Radio Personality at the recently held Glitz Africa Style Awards. He always had the urge to get into the fashion industry and after years of being behind the scenes, NINETEEN57BYKOD was launched five years ago. Notable personalities like President Rawlings, late President Atta Mills, former Black Stars skipper Stephen Appiah, Michael Essien, Emmanuel Adebayor, Jamaican Reggae Star Buju Banton and International Gospel Star Sonnie Badu are part of his tall list of clientele
