Rappers in Ghana now are better than those in my generation, says Okyeame Kwame

The current generation of Ghanaian rappers, according to Okyeame Kwame, is far superior to those from his era.

He said to Ibrahim Ben-Bako of Joy Prime that the increased competition among the new generation of rappers forces them to up their game in terms of creativity, excitement, and entertainment.

“When we started rap, there were just a few rappers – Bright of Buk Bak, Exdoe, Chicago, Reggie Rockstone, VIP and Obrafour. We were just a few. Now, everyone knows how to rap, and the world has become so small through the internet,” Okyeame Kwame said.

The ‘rap dacta’ made his statement at the Grand Cassamora hotel at Adjiriganor where he had gone to support rapper Kwame Yogot.

He stated that “these guys are standing on the shoulders of giants like Reggie Rockstone, Lord Kenya; what people don’t know is these young rappers are way better than us. Kwame Yogot and the rest – they are much better than us.” he added.

The Akyeame pair, which consists of Okyeame Kwame and Quophi Okyeame, first appeared on the Ghanaian music scene in the late 1990s.

They arrived after the introduction of hiplife and, by extension, rap music to the Ghanaian music scene.
