In an exclusive interview with Spice Fm’s Francis Hema at the final funeral rites of the late CK Mann at the Takoradi Sports Club over the weekend, the Susuka hit maker mentioned that, though he was not so close to CK Mann in person he was very close to him in music and he has learnt a lot of things from the works of CK Mann. “Uncle CK and Paapa Yankson have become an institution for us to learn from”, he added.
