Amerado, one of Ghana’s most popular rappers, recently discussed the beneficial professional influence that veteran rapper Okyeame Kwame had on him.
Amerado discussed his path from periods of doubt to his present success in a recent interview on TV3’s Showbiz 360. He gave gratitude to the support he received from other artists and fans.
He went on to emphasize how important of a support system and how much of an impact these musicians had on his musical path.
He praised Okyeame Kwame, the “rap doctor,” and many other music experts who had opened up for him.
“Okyeame Kwame is always first, and I will always applaud him.” Amerado also acknowledged the support and influence of other artists such as Eugene Praye (Horni Hor), Ofori Amponsah, the late Daasebre Gyamenah, and Obrafour”.
Reflecting on his music career journey, Amerado recounted the struggles and challenges he battled just to fend for himself.
“I went to England and I was contemplating on whether to come back to my career or stay there which I knew was not permitted. I took it upon myself to come back after consulting a few people. When I came back, things were way harder. I was playing casino and betting. Sometimes, I go hungry, so I have to go to friends for money to eat.”
Amerado emphasized his commitment to doing so despite the obstacles, even though he admitted that the music industry is under pressure to always advance and grow.
He also used the opportunity to express his gratitude to his followers for their steadfast support and to implore them to continue purchasing not just his music but also that of other Ghanaian musicians.
There are several music streaming services where you may listen to Amerado’s most recent albums, “Kwaku Anase” and “Young and Strong” EP.
