Ghana’s rap doctor Okyeame Kwame was on Monday, November 21, awarded with the key to the City of Cincinnati, USA, by the mayor of the city.
Aside being presented with the key, the people of Cincinnati have set aside the 17th of November of every year to celebrate the ‘small small’ singer who recently graduated with a master’s degree in Marketing Strategy from the University of Ghana, Legon.
It will be known as the ‘Okyeame Kwame Day’.
Put together in conjunction with the Black Nurses Association of Cincinnati and the Ghanaian community in Cincinnati, the rapper used the opportunity to increase awareness of Hepatitis B, a campaign he has championed for some time now.
Okyeame Kwame who returns to Ghana Wednesday, told host of Starr Drive Giovanni that he is elated and motivated by the honour.
On his return, he is expected to present the key to the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.
