AntiLGBTQ+ bill: We are focusing on trivial issues; corruption is more concerning – Okyeame Kwame

Renowned rapper Kwame Nsiah-Apau known popularly as Okyeame Kwame has voiced his concerns about the misplaced priorities of Ghanaian and African politicians, emphasizing the need to redirect their focus from LGBTQ issues to combating corruption.

According to the ‘Ye Ko’ hitmaker, corruption has entrenched itself as an unofficial citizen in every African country and addressing this pervasive problem should take precedence for the continent’s development.

In his statement, Okyeame Kwame stressed that Ghana could achieve essential progress and self-sufficiency if all efforts were consolidated in the fight against corruption.

“If I were in charge, I would rather focus on corruption, I would rather focus on educational reforms,” Okyeame Kwame stated.

He expressed a desire for political leaders to concentrate on issues such as corruption and educational reforms rather than getting entangled in debates over LGBTQ matters.

Highlighting the importance of education, Okyeame Kwame drew attention to the success of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) introduced by the Western world.

He advocated for a shift in perspective, encouraging the adoption of STEAM, where the arts are taken seriously, fostering creativity that is often overlooked in African education systems.

In a candid remark, the rapper remarked, “For me, LGBTQ is not my problem. My concern lies with the BJ in there. If I say I’m a member, they may come and arrest me. Between corruption and LGBTQ, which one is very pressing?”

Okyeame Kwame’s stance underscores the urgency of addressing corruption as a fundamental issue for the socio-economic advancement of the continent.
