When it comes to consistency, the all-round talented music mogul never fails. Kwame Nsiah-Apau, known by his stage name Okyeame Kwame and nicknamed Rap Doctor, is a Ghanaian musician, songwriter, creative director and entrepreneur.
He kicked off his music career in 1997 where he achieved notoriety as a member of the “Akyeame” hiplife duo, and he still remains relevant today making songs with great vibes all ages can jam to.
OK’s Journey To Being A Fashion Star
Okyeame Kwame is not only a music mogul but sometime in 2019, he kicked off a movement to support made in Ghana. It consisted of everything, from supporting made in Ghana products to food to fashion and style.
He used his platform to push the uniqueness and beauty of the fashion industry modeling many outstanding looks himself and to this day he continues to do so.
Okyeame Kwame Releases His New Song Yeeko
The rap doctor recently released his new song ‘Y33ko’ featuring Ghanaian pop star Kwame Eugene. The song obtained a whopping 10,000 streams in 10hrs.
The ‘party time’ song was filled with nothing but up-tempo energy so it was only right the video reflected this, and it did. In a self-directed video by Okyeame Kwame, he garnered the participation of his family in bright colored clothes with a house pool setting.
He then took to instagram and stated “I directed this video myself and partly shot some footages. We mostly used phones because we wanted it to be as natural as possible.
My favorite part of the video is when @mrsokyeame came to take her phone and killed the whole vibe.” in the instagram post below.
Fashion & Music
Unfortunately, Kwame Eugene was far from impressive with his fashion, and as usual, wore nothing made-in-Ghana. On the other hand, the rap Doctor Okyeame Kwame laced his whole family in beautiful Blackstar jumpsuits courtesy of fashion brand @WearGhana.
The song was actually produced by Kuami Eugene and all the models in the video were provided by his management Lynx models. Enjoy the video below.
UPCOMING TOP EVENTS!
Ghana’s leading fashion event Accra Fashion Week is scheduled for 7-11 December 2022 following their 5th-year celebration last year in 2021. Accra Fashion Week is a platform for African designers that can be compared to fashion weeks across the major capitals. It aims to fill the void which sees tremendous creativity and culture across the continent with the absence of an operating fashion infrastructure.
The epic event took place at Ghana Dubai in Accra, and saw models march down the steps from the Kwame Nkrumah Monument whilst being followed by a spotlight, before circulating the central fountains. Memories of the exciting night still give chills as guests revisit the experience on youtube.
However, rest assured that 2022 is going to be even more exciting with greater performances and an upgraded designer collection. FashionGHANA.com is sure to bring you the exclusives we did on www.FashionGHANA.com/TV. All last year’s shows are available to watch on youtube. Designer’s registration is ongoing on the AccraFashionWeek.org website.
As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, our theme for 2022 is “Afrofuturism.” This term was created to explore the developing intersection of cultural aesthetic, philosophy of science, and philosophy of history as it relates to the African Diaspora. During this year’s events, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through fashion, food, art and music. In 2019, the African Diaspora returned home to the continent for the “Year of Return.” This year, we will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.
