Ghanaian rapper, Okyeame Kwame, known in private life as Kwame Nsiah-Apau, has a message for his critics.
He was heavily chastised following his recent opinion. Over time, the popular rapper has been caught in controversies over his utterances about marriage, religion, climate change and nature.
Kwame is ready to welcome opposing views, but he won’t take it if someone insults his mother and family when disagreeing with his opinions.
He spoke against verbal assaults directed at his family in an interview with Graphic Show—which Newshuntermag.com has come across.
“I don’t think Ghanaians are being hostile to my views. The same way I disagree with other people’s ideas, there’s no way I mind people disagreeing with my opinions.
“What I don’t think it’s cool is that someone puts forward an argument and instead of a counter argument or refuting the central idea, you come to do name calling or just insult that I’m a fool, look at your forehead,” Okyeame Kwame stated.
“When someone is saying let’s not eat turtles because they have a particular role they play in the sea and they keep the world safe, and your best answer ‘is your mother’, that is what I don’t get.
“It decreases the discourse and take it to a realm that I’m unable to make my valid points. For instance, people have disagreed with me for saying it is inhuman to beat homosexuals and humiliate them on the streets.
“If you have any contrary opinion to that, just mention but don’t come and insult me, my mother and my family,” he added.
