One of the most prominent groups in Ghana, Akyeame disbanded soon after the duo that made up the group, Okyeame Kwame and Okyeame Quophi came back from America somewhere in 2003.
After the break up, Okyeame Kwame has risen to become one of the best and most consistent artists of his generation whiles his partner, Quophi became an Evangelist.
In a phone interview on DayBreakHitz with Andy Dosty, Quophi Okyeame shed more light on the cause of the break up.
He said; “People become more self-centred and they realize that they were created for particular purposes other than what the group actually seem to achieve”, he said.
When asked if that was the case of Akyeame which he once belonged, he said, “it’s been the case in every group”.
“Groups from my experience are basically to serve a particular purpose for a period of time. Everybody becomes individualistic at a point and something must give for something to happen”, he added.
Touching on why the Akyeame group fell apart, he said, “What happened was, we decided to disband even though it wasn’t cordial. Like I said something had to happen for something to happen. I think individually we became different people when we returned from our sojourn”.
