Cash From My ‘Faithful’ Hit Song Was Used To Build Two Houses- Okyeame Kwame

Ghanaian Rapper, Okyeame Kwame has revealed that the proceeds he received from his hit song “Faithful” was huge enough to enable him to make properties out of the song.

According to him, he was able to build two houses and cater for his Master’s degree and that of his wife due to the other opportunities like endorsement deals that came after he released the song.

Faithful is a song featured by Bertha and the song did really well.

He made his submission in a recent interview on Angel Tv.

In his words: ” It did, it took care of my education, my wife’s…it gave us an amazing life, yeah i’ve built two houses.Faithful did well for me.It also opened doors for me because at that time it shown me as a gentleman.

“I got an endorsement from Coca-Cola brand icon. I was already MTN brand icon so they renewed my contract i got UNICEF, I got World Bank…it did well for me”. He added.

Meanwhile, The Grammy Academy has opened up on the reason Wizkid ‘s Essence was not nominated for the Grammy for Record of the Year category.

Harvey Mason, the Grammy CEO, was recently asked why Essence was not nominated for a Record of the Year award in a recent interview with Billboard.

For the very first time in 27 years, the Grammy nominees are determined solely by the voting members of the Grammy committee, with no input from the review committee.

Wizkid received two nominations for Best Global Album and Best Global Performance, and the CEO was questioned if he was satisfied with the voting committee’s capacity to deliver without monitoring. 

the Grammy CEO said;

I wasn’t nervous. I felt like we’d done a lot of important work on our membership. We’ve done a lot of outreach into different communities that we felt were maybe underrepresented in our voting membership. … So I felt like the timing was right for our membership to be able to directly decide who the nominees were. That’s why we felt good with removing the nominations review committees at the time that we did it.
