Outstanding rapper and hiplife artiste, Okyeame Kwame has lauded the people of Kumasi for their continuous support for artistes from the area.
Speaking on Agyenkwa Extra on Kumasi-based Agyenkwa FM, the Rap Doctor, told the host that the support they have gained from the people of Kumasi has been one of their major inspiration for pushing themselves high as far as the music industry is concerned.
“The people of Kumasi massively support music artiste from Kumasi. They did it from the days of Lord Kenya, Akyeame, Obrafuor Okomfou Kwaadee, etc.
Predominately, most of the hiplife artistes were initially from Kumasi and that has maintained the support. So if you ask me, I will say yes, Kumasi is strictly behind us.”
Okyeame Kwame from Kumasi is one of the few hiplife artistes in Ghana who has consistently won the hearts of Ghanaians with any new hit he comes out with.
One can lately remember him with hits like Hallelujah which he did with Abochie and It’s Ok with Nero X.
