Music maestro Kojo Antwi has lauded Okyeame Kwame for his general approach to music.
The international award-winning Ghanaian Afropop, highlife and reggae artiste, affectionately known as the “Music Man” has constantly bemoaned the lack of content in modern songs, but praises the Woso rapper for the perpetually positive messages in his music.
“Some songs I heard from you, your collaborations, your direction…the variety separates you from the boys“, he admitted. “You feel the variety in the music…and brings you out as been refined“, he continued.
With over 20 albums to his credit, the seasoned artiste holds the opinion that the current Ghanaian system lacks varieties but rather dominates on trends. Kojo Antwi however applauds Okyeame Kwame as inspiring creative difference by beating the odds and ‘sticking to his guts”.
Recounting the journey from “Mesan Aba” to his recent releases, he expresses his respect to the versatile rapper as having stood the test of time and maintained a sense of originality.
The “Tom and Jerry” hitmaker is arguably one of the biggest music icons in Ghana. He is recipient of such awards as the West African Tourism Award, All Africa Music Awards, Kora Awards, Ghana Music Awards among others.
