Okyeame Kwame is ‘Made In Ghana’


“Everybody hates Mondays, but this Monday didn’t seem to be a hateful one because it was made in Ghana.”

Monday evenings are usually spent on my bed after a fun day at the Muse Lab but yesterday, Ewurabina, KDD and I, made the nice journey to the listening session of Okyeame Kwame’s Made In Ghana Album at the Roots Hotel Apartment in Osu.

We got there in time to listen to some of the songs before the evening came to an end.
Those present at the Listening session included the head of GHAMRO and veteran high life singer Rex Omar, Media personality Abeiku Santana, Rappers Kojo Cue and XO Senavoe with Music Producer with Shatta Wale’s best friend Mark Okraku Mantey joining later.

Okyeame Kwame, dressed in an all-white track suit like attire with Kente embellishment, standing in front of his guests, revealed that all songs being previewed weren’t mastered works and inputs made would go a long way in helping shape the album.

Songs previewed during our time there included 1956 featuring Kurl Songx,’Put your phone down’, Ino be my matter featuring Kuami Eugene & Bolgatanga Girl.

I must say I enjoyed every bit of the songs especially ‘1956’ produced by Kaywa. The song compared how relationship worked back in the day to our current year.

It seemed I wasn’t the only one who enjoyed the songs, as the media men, music personalities and critics were all bumping their heads and tapping their feet.

The Album is a true representation of the title ‘Made In Ghana’ as the percussions, lyrics & song direction are all influenced by the Ghanaian way of life, resting on the genre we call our own.

The ‘Made In Ghana’ album will be Okyeame Kwame’s Fifth solo Studio Album.

I wish you were all there to listen to the Album, but when it finally drops on 14th December you all will understand what the fuzz is all about.

However, Okyeame Kwame has promised us one song from the album before the end of September, so don’t be worried if you feel left out.

The most interesting part of the listening was when it was turned into a karaoke session. This happened when there was a technical issue with the DJ’s set. Quickly guests brought back nostalgic feelings with performances like “Akatakyie’s Odo sisi Me’ and Kontihene’s ‘Aketesea’ alongside some percussion and guitar.
