Ghanaian musician Okyeame Kwame has stated that he will not be taking up any leadership position with the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) as he wants to protect his hard-earned reputation.

The “Woara” hitmaker shared that musicians naturally hold leadership roles due to their extensive social media following. However, a MUSIGA position requires dedication and intense focus.

Drawing on the example of Obour, who once led MUSIGA as its president, he highlighted the demanding nature of such a role.

“Musicians are leaders by themselves, with millions of followers on their social media. So if you position yourself as a leader of musicians, you are indirectly a leader of leaders, and all these leaders have their own ideas and styles of leading to become successful.

“So immediately you position yourself in front of them, you have to be as dedicated as Obour was and be focused on doing it with all intensity, otherwise, you will fail,” he said.

Despite recognizing his leadership potential, Okyeame Kwame admitted that he is currently not mentally prepared to “lead leaders” in the music industry.

He also aknowledged that he is not ready to sacrifice his image for leadership roles within organizations like MUSIGA or GHAMRO. For now, he is content with being a member, leaving the possibility of leadership in the future open.

“To tell you the truth, I am currently not psychologically prepared to be able to lead leaders. I think that it’s not yet my time. I’ve worked with MUSIGA, and GHAMRO and realized that I could not handle all that. Maybe in the future, I might.

“If I go, I may see negative headlines. I am not ready to sacrifice my image for MUSIGA. Maybe in the future. But for now, I am okay with being a member,” he expressed.
