One of the veteran rappers in Ghana, Okyeame Kwame has shown his versatility by producing his first ever Highlife album which set to be launched at the +233 Jazz Bar and Grill on April 20.
The forthcoming album, which is dubbed, “Made in Ghana”, is specifically designed to instill national pride and patriotism into Ghanaians which the rapper believes is missing.
Each song on the album represents one region of Ghana and the music videos of the songs will showcase some tourist sites as the artiste’s contribution to promote the country’s tourism through arts.
The launch will be a celebration of all that is good about Ghanaian music, from the old to the new with acts including Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Kurl Songx, Ayesem, Feli Nuna, Afriyie of Wutah fame, Abiana, Wulomei, Wiyaala and the Kwan Pa band all expected to perform at the 8 p.m. show.

They recorded together the albums “Nyansapo” (“Witty Knot”, 1997), “Nkonsonkonson” (“Shackles”, 1998), “Ntoaso” (“Continuity”, 2000) and “Apam Foforo” (“New Testament”, 2002).
He performed solo under his own record label One Mic Entertainment, in Accra since they parted in 2004.
