Award-winning Ghanaian Hiplife Artiste, Kwame Nsiah-Apau was popularly known in showbiz as Okyeame Kwame has revealed in an interview monitored by xorlali.com that his focus is not winning BET or Grammy awards but rather inspiring people with his songs.
The small small hitmaker on Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central said; “I’m not worried that I have never gotten a BET or Grammy Awards nomination throughout my entire music career. I’m an artiste and the reason I do produce songs is to inspire people to help in the development of the country but if we win awards that’s a bonus.”
“I will be lying to you if I say my ambition has been to win a Grammy Award because that’s not where my focus is. My success depends on how my songs bring love, unity, and national pride amongst Ghanaians”.
Okyeame Kwame stressed “we don’t value what belongs to us but rather we depend so much on external stimuli in order to realize that we are making giant strides in the music industry”
“How about us also doing our Ghana Music Awards so well that those who are abroad would also yearn to win it. Why do we always value things that come from abroad and recognize that we are doing well only when we win international awards?
“That’s the same concept that’s why our Cedi can’t compete with the Dollar. It’s the same concept that’s why when an Ashanti marries a Fante we say it’s a long journey marriage but when a Ghanaian marries someone in Abroad we say that’s a good marriage.
“All is because we’ve tied our hopes, aspirations, and success to external stimuli so let’s focus on what we have and be proud of it.”
