Kwame Nsiah-Apau, known in showbiz circles as Okyeame Kwame granted an interview to Atinka FM on Friday, 16th November 2018.
He touched on several issues pertaining to the industry but what took the host and listeners by surprise was his (Okyeame) shocking revelation about the upcoming MUSIGA elections.
The election, which will come off next year to elect a new leader to replace the current president, Bice Osei Kuffor popular known as Obour, has had names of big shots like Appietus, Samini come up for the presidency though not confirmed.
When asked if he had any intention of joining the race, the “Woso” hitmaker told DJ Candyman categorically that he isn’t fit for the 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”
In his words, he honestly admitted that he is not endowed with that tolerance and capability to lead top-notch artistes like Shatta Wale, Sarkodie Stonebwoy etc 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, he isn’t 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.
MUSIGA election is slated for 28th June 2019.
