After starving his fans and the world in general of a new album due to academic commitments, Ghana's rap doctor, Nana Kwame Nsiah Apau popularly known as Okyeame Kwame will be releasing a new album soon.

According to Mrs Annica Nsiah Apau, wife of Okyeame Kwame and the product and brands development manager of 1 mic entertainment, the ace rapper will be releasing a new album after releasing "M'anwensen" about two years ago.

Okyeame Kwame, a multi-award winner, CEO of 1Mic Entertainment and MTN and coca cola Icon, is set to release one of the greatest music albums of our time with acts like Sarkodie, Ayigbe Edem, Morris D'Voice, Tattoo, the Bradez, Abrantie Amakye Dede, Asem, Richie, Irene Logan, Efyah, Tinny and some up and coming music acts based in Kumasi.

Proposed album titles include "the clinic", "best rapper alive", "mr. versatility" and "blood, sweat and tears" Asked whether there shall be a diss song on the album, Mrs Nsiah Apau said "the question even disrespects and undermines Okyeame Kwame's image.Dissing songs and his brand does not go pari passu".

She further stressed that the album is based on a theme of social change and seeks to address social problems and solutions. The lyrics will be conscious, soulful, inspiring and entertaining. The Mrs also explained the elements of the main album namely, great rhythms, african orientation and exceptional poetry and further stated that the rapper will use more african elements and poetry.
