Okyeame Kwame has shared another intriguing story of his genesis as a musician.
He recounted that in 1993, he participated in a competition at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Kumasi which earned him an amount of 2.5 million cedis (now GHC250) after he placed second.
“I received my first pay cheque in 1993. It was 4am at city hotel now Golden Tulip in Kumasi. I remember vividly it was two hundred and fifty cedis which was 2.5 million cedis at the time. I don’t know what the value was at that time but all I know is I had mixed feelings that day,” he said in a post on Instagram.
According to him, he had given his best performance and was expecting to be named the winner but the judges thought otherwise.
However, Okyeame Kwame stated that a CEO of a forex bureau called him after the competition to give him an additional 2.5 million cedis because he felt he deserved first place.
“I had given my best performance but the judges said I had come second to Turbo B or Shimolee I don’t remember the exact person. So after the competition the CEO of Glendex forex bureau called me and told me, to him I was first and gave me 2.5million cedis more so that I would get the same amount that the first person got.”
