I would have gone in my kente to the Grammys – Okyeame Kwame
Okyeame Kwame has hinted at what style he would have represented Ghana with had he been invited to the just-ended 65th edition of the Grammy awards.
Okyeame Kwame who is also an advocate for ‘Made in Ghana’ was speaking in an interview with Sammy Forson Joy Fm’s A-Z showbiz asserted “I would have gone in my kente, in my ‘ahenema’, with my beads all around, and get like a boom box, a boom player and be playing ‘adowa’. Since I cannot go with a whole ensemble, I would have a whole boom box following me, and then I would have gone in my regal kente and gold everywhere and it would have been very difficult for anyone to steal the shine.”
Okyeame Kwame also revealed how elated he would have been if the opportunity had presented itself as he believes such opportunities also come with the growth of an artist as it is a platform to connect with other global talents subsequently elevating one’s career “I thought it was an amazing opportunity because if I had the opportunity to go to the Grammys I would jump on the next flight to go and see all those amazing artistes that I look up to and seize the opportunity to try and see if I can get a telephone number or two, so I can get some features and take pictures and take pictures for my social media and connect; find management and find plugs, and try and see if I can get a real connection with someone that can take my music to the next level”
