Multiple award-winning rapper, Okyeame Kwame has told DJ Raw on Kessben FM in Kumasi that he started planning on how to help Kumasi artistes two years ago. Rap Dacta said the dream to start a project of this nature has been there for long but he thinks the time is now to implement what he has been planning over the years.
According to him, the movement tagged #KsiBoys needs not the help of only musicians but bloggers, presenters, DJs, chiefs, businessmen, fashion designers also have to help develop Kumasi music.
“It is to help Kumasi artistes who have talent and are doing very well. We are all aware that musicians like Kojo-Cue, Phrimpong, Kofi Supreme, Willy Maame have the talent but for some strange reasons the light has moved from Kumasi to different place. We are all bringing our efforts but it is not just the musicians. We need bloggers, presenters, DJs, chiefs, businessmen, fashion designers to come together to lift Kumasi music again.
The dream has been there for long, its been two years since I talked to you (DJ Raw) about it. Every single day I hear of Kojo Cue, Kofi Supreme and other guys, I tell myself that I’m the only one to use my experience help and bring them to mainstream but the problem has always been time, money, equipments and my mental state of being ready to start the movement. These things have been keeping me away from embarking on this project but from the time I started talking to you (DJ Raw) about this issue, we have been planning on how to make this dream come true so the time is now.”
Hinting more on the roadmap for #KsiBoys, the musician whose new single “Small Small” has become one of the most popular songs in the country disclosed that “the four artistes on the song, Strongman, Cabum, Flowking Stone and myself, Okyeame Kwame will be in Kumasi this week for the music video shoot. We also have plans of meeting some traditional leaders in the city we believe when they support us, cooperate bodies will also agree to come on board to help organise events, get us endorsement deals and also help in achieving the movement’s dream.”
Okyeame Kwame further added that “we are also recording #KsiGirls so that the ladies will not be left out because if you exclude ladies, you will not win your fight. Again verse two of #KsiBoys which Peweezle is currently on the beat will also be out before Christmas.”
The verse two of #KsiBoys according to him will have rappers like Kojo Cue, Phrimpong and another artiste which the general public will help in selecting but “so far, the person whose name has been mentioned several times is Willy Maame.”
The song #KsiBoys was released on Farmer’s Day this year and according to celebritytvgh.com’s findings, it has been receiving massive airplay in the country.
