The advent and influx of Christianity has reduced some core African virtues and norms to nothingness for obvious reasons. Regardless there are some societies and communities that still hold the neglected virtues and norms in higher esteem.
That’s why Okomfo Anokye, powerful traditional priest in the Ashanti history, is dead and gone, but the inhabitants continue to revere his name whenever it’s being mentioned. So, it’s not too surprising that Dancehall artiste, Stonebwoya has voiced that Okomfour Kwadee remains the biggest artiste in the Ashanti region.
Speaking to DJ Reuben of Kumasi-based Luv FM fame, Stonebwoy posited that he people of Ashanti don’t easily forget game changers or otherwise their heroes. Thus, once you do something remarkable in their hood, your memories will continue to linger in their hearts forever.
Remember Highlife musician Okomfour Kwadee throughout the 2000’s was the talk of Ghana musically. As a result of Kwaadee’s remarkable achievement in music, the people of Ashanti specially those in Kumasi and its environs see him as their very best artiste till today.
Stonebwoy noted that that’s why whenever Kwaadee’s name is mentioned in Kumasi, it resurrects a lot of memories regardless.
