Okyeame Kwame speaks about women and his new song

Okyeame Kwame has released a new single - 'Woman' - with Sister Afia, describing it as a song to uplift females in society

Sensational Ghanaian rapper and songwriter, Okyeame Kwame believes some of his songs have influenced “societal pressure” on women.
Describing the type of pressure that women endure, the ‘Rap Dacta’ said: “I think through my music, I must also have contributed to the pressure that women get because I’m also a key player in the society.”
“I feel like through my music I might have contributed to the type of pressure that women get,” Okyeame Kwame told Naa Ashorkor on the Between Hours Show on Wednesday (24 August).

New Song

Okyeame Kwame has released a new single – ‘Woman’ – with Sister Afia, describing it as a song to uplift females in society.
“We put pressure on women, and when they break, when they crack, when they bleach their skin or abort their children or become depressed, our kids suffer. And we still blame them for that.”
He added: “So for example in a song like ‘Obaa Pa’, I talked about the ideal women as being the one who cooks and cleans. And I’m not saying that cooking and cleaning is wrong, but that is not the only measure for what an ideal woman should be.”

“So, this society, I mean traditions, religion, culture, education, all of it find a way to contribute to the hegemonic nature of patriarchy. All these things find a way to position the woman as subservient to the man. I mean this is true, if you have paid attention you would see.
“In this society if a dad has the money to pay one person’s school fees it will go to the boy not the girl, even if the girl is more academically smarter than the boy. Because they will say that someone will come and marry the girl away,” Okyeame Kwame said.
