Hiplife artiste, Okyeame Kwame has cautioned Ghanaians especially the youth to accept small beginnings because using a short cut to succeed in life could be disastrous.
He said this in an interview with Abrantepa on Radio Univers, Brunch2Lunch, while explaining the concept of his latest sigle Small Small featuring MzVee.
“The song has three themes. First, let’s accept that nothing is small. Secondly, the phrase, ‘I love you’ has lost its value. Let’s take gradual steps in our love journey. And finally, let’s accept that everything is a process. So you can’t just move from class one to become a millionaire. You have to pass through the mill,” he said.
“Let’s look at the lyrics of the song: If you want to walk with me, first learn to crawl with me. If you want to run with me, learn to walk with me. If you want to fly with me, learn to run with me. And if you want to land with me, you might have flown with me. The music is discussing the fact that we shouldn’t forget that there are processes in life. We’ve all thrown out these processes. The concept of becoming rich quickly is becoming too prevalent,” Okyeame Kwame added.
Small Small was produced by Appietus and it is a fusion of Afrobeats, jazz, French pop and a bit of trap sounds. It was recorded live with the Patch Bay Band.
Answering why the song has most of it’s lyrics in pidgin, he said; “I did that because I am looking forward to market it not only in Ghana but in East Africa.”
