Ghanaian musician and songwriter, Kwame Nsiah-Apau known in showbiz circles as Okyeame Kwame has been interviewed on BBC regarding his ‘Made In Ghana’ project which seeks to promote Ghana’s culture.
According to the ‘Rap Dacta’, his aim is to promote the sense of national pride in every Ghanaian through music thus his ‘Made In Ghana’ project.
“I have been an artiste for 21 years. I have done 9 studio albums and I realised that my impact is not fully felt in Ghana. I have done a lot of things -great shows, great performances, great music but until I’m scratching my people where it’s itching the most, I’m not at my best so I decided to record an album which in the short run will inspire national consumer behaviour”, he disclosed.
He also stated that “even if some people know about the little intricacies of our cultural uniqueness, it is important to bring it into pop culture”.
According to the UNICEF Ambassador, the objective of his ‘Made In Ghana’ project is to bring about unity in diversity so that even though different ethnic groups in Ghana are urged to keep abreast with their individual cultures, people from other groups would as well be encouraged to taste different cultures.
He also disclosed that the ‘Made In Ghana‘ album will be released early next year and that the 10-track album represents each of the ten regions in Ghana.
