Okyeame Kwame, known in private life as Kwame Nsia Apau, who was crowned the music artiste of the year at the just ended Joy FM Night With The Stars has said he’s grateful to all his fans who have supported him in his music career.
The event which was the seventh this year had music artistes like Samini, Praye, Tinny and many others contending for the prestigious title but the Rap Doctor came tops as he received the highest number of text messages from fans.
For his prize Okyeame Kwame would receive a year’s full subscription from MTN, the title sponsor of the event. This means he will make and receive phone calls freely for one year. Aside that he receives hampers from MTN and acts as the Joy FM music ambassador until his successor is elected.
In a chat with Beatwaves Okyeame Kwame described that moment of his life as ecstatic and totally unexpected. “I am lost for words and very happy; if not for anything, for the prestige that comes with this award.”
He further expressed his appreciation to his fans who spent their hard-earned cash to vote for him to emerge winner. “I say a big thank you to my fans; without them I am nobody and I love them all.”
A cross-section of the fans who spoke to Beatwaves later were of the view that Okyeame Kwame deserved to be the winner. Other Artiste like Tinny and Czar congratulated him and urged him on as well.
