Annica Nsiah-Apau, wife and manager of Ghanaian rapper Okyeame Kwame says she feels honored that her husband was adjudged the Male Fashion Celebrity Icon of the Year at the just ended e. TV Ghana Fashion Awards 2016 because he really works hard to look good.
Okyeame Kwame beat former Black Stars captain, Stephen Appiah and Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD) to emerge winner of the Male Fashion Celebrity Icon category.
According to his wife, though everyone in that category deserved to win, it meant that the organizers and judges of the event appreciated Okyeame Kwame’s unique style of dressing.
Explaining the secret behind her husband’s style of dressing at the event, which took place over the weekend at the Mercedes-Benz Showroom, Silver Star Tower, Annica said “Okyeame Kwame is predominantly Afrocentric and so everything he wears he wants to have the African touch to it.”
“Most of all he is a gentleman who also stands for positivity and so he also dresses according to that,” Okyeame Kwame’s wife stated.
Annice said Okyeame Kwame, who is known in real life as Kwame Nsiah-Apau, could not pick up the award himself as he was away in the US on business where he was honoured by the Mayor of Cincinnati. The award entailed been given the key to the City of Cincinnati. He will also have an Okyeame Kwame Day celebrated in Cincinnati every year.
