Ghanaian rap icon, Kwame Nsiah-Apau, widely known as Okyeame Kwame has boldly declared his determination to reclaim the coveted title of TGMA (Telecel Ghana Music Awards) Artiste of the Year.

With a career spanning decades and a legacy etched in the annals of Ghanaian music history, Okyeame Kwame’s aspirations carry the weight of experience and the fire of ambition.

Having previously clinched the prestigious award in 2009, the ‘Yekoo’ singer resolve to once again ascend to the pinnacle of Ghanaian music, underscoring his unwavering dedication to his craft. His declaration to once again the TGMA Artiste Of the Year resonates with fans who have witnessed his evolution as an artist and his enduring commitment to excellence.

Okyeame is in his late 40’s and has been doing music for the past 26 years, and is in this year’s Telecel Ghana Music Awards (TGMA) race, with his song Insha Allah featuring King Paluta.

The song earned him a nod in the Hiplife Song of the Year category, and he comes up strongly against younger acts such as King Paluta, Jay Bahd and Oseikrom Sikani, among others.

While he probably should be patting himself on the back big time for still getting nominated in Ghana’s biggest music awards despite his many years in the industry, the ‘Rap Doctor’, in an a chat with Graphic Showbiz made known that he is rather working hard to, once again, grab the topmost prize, Artiste of the Year, which he won it 15 years ago.

“It feels really great to be nominated even in my 26th year in music and that tells me that people appreciate what I’m doing. That is not to say that I would have been bothered if I missed out but it encourages me to do more.

“Besides, it is the more reason why I’m working hard to win the ultimate Artiste of the Year award again. It’s a must for me so I need to change the narrative by dropping a massive album, hopefully this year. I will put in more work to achieve the goal,” he said.
