Okyeame Kwame has cleared the storm of doubts over the ‘exact’ role he played in his latest hit song ‘faithful’.
He admitted on e.tv late night celebrity show that “yes it is true that Kwabena Kwabena sung in my ‘faithful’ song but he didn’t sing the whole chorus like people are saying.”
Bra Kwame confessed to Dzifa Smith, the host of the show that at the time when he was recording the song in the studio, Kwabena Kwabena walked into the studio to see the sound engineer. “….it was then that the sound engineer asked him to help me out with the ‘oooh oooh’ part of the song.”
“Since Kwabena is a very good friend of mine, he did not hesitate to help me out. We sung only that part together with Bertha and nothing else,” he said. The ‘Rap Doctor’ as popularly known in the Ghanaian music industry found himself in the mist of allegations that he did not sing the chorus of the said song. These claims intensified when Okyeame Kwame failed to sing his part of the chorus well at the just ended Ghana Music Awards festival where he performed the song with a live band.
A copy of the song’s promotional CD apportions no credit to Kwabena Kwabena as the name behind the voice of the lyrics.
