I Am Not Interested In MUSIGA Presidency – Okyeame Kwame



Okyeame Kwame has dispelled rumours that he was nurturing interest in becoming president of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA).
MUSIGA would be electing a new president next year to replace Bice Osei Kuffuor popularly known as Obour, and a number of names in the industry have come up as possible replacement.

They include Appietus, Samini and Okyeame Kwame, the ‘Best Rapper Alive’ artiste whose real name is Kwame Nsiah-Apau.

In a radio interview with the drive time host of Atinka FM, DJ Candyman on the drive talk programme on Friday November 16 2018, Okyeame Kwame touched on several issues in the industry.

When he was asked whether he was interested in the MUSIGA presidency, he said he was not fit for that position.

According to him, he is not ready to play the leadership role in the music industry for many reasons.

“As a leader, you have to tap into your followers’ aspirations and lead them to not only where you desire but where they have decided to.”

He indicated he is not endowed with that tolerance and capability to lead top notch artistes like Shatta Wale, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and many others who are leaders in their own circles to that expected destination.

The 2009 Ghana music Awards Artiste of the year added that as a citizen of Ghana who is aware of the culture of trading insults in the country and he is not ready to tolerate the insults people will rain on him as an occupant of that position and for that matter will not make any attempt to contest that position.

The MUSIGA election has been planned to take place on June 28, 2019.
