By close of day, April 30 Kwame Nsiah Apau alias Okeame Kwame would have completed his pursuit for a bachelor of arts Degree at KNUST.With this achievement, Okyeame Kwame enters into the hall of fame of the very few Ghanaian musicians who have attained higher learning in addition to their music career. Excited about happenings in his life, the rap doctor comments in an interview that it is a dream come true since it has always been his family legacy to be educated to the highest level as possible. Writing a research entitled “Music as a Didactic Phenomena”; Okyeame believes music can be used to educate the public on social issues which could help cause positive change in their lives. As they say education has no end, the award winning rapper did not hesitate at all in taking up the challenge of furthering his education despite his fame and wealth after quite a long break upon completion of his high school education.

All these and more indicate how positively higher education has impacted on the level of reasoning and action of the 2009 GMA artiste of the year.

After his education, the rap doctor urges his fans to expect more features which notable among them would be with Kojo Antwi and Abrantie Amakye Dede. His next album however would be out in June 2010.
