Okyeame Kwame has once again gone into his archives and shared the story behind his first paycheck as an artist.

Okyeame Kwame revealed in 1993, he earned ¢2.5 million Ghana (Now estimated at ¢250) after placing second in a competition held at the Golden Tulip Hotel Kumasi.

Even though he came second, a CEO of a record label further added another ¢2.5 million because he felt Okyeame Kwame was rather the winner of the competition.

Thus Okyeame Kwame’s first paycheck as an artist was ¢ 5 million (¢500).

In a social media post, Okyeame Kwame shared his story.

I received my first pay cheque in 1993. It was 4am at city hotel now Golden Tulip in Kumasi. I remember vividly it was two hundred and fifty cedis which was 2.5 million cedis at the time. I don’t know what the value was at that time but all I know is I had mixed feelings that day. I had given my best performance but the judges said I had come second to Turbo B or Shimolee I don’t remember the exact person. So after the competition the CEO of Glendex forex bureau called me and told me, to him I was first and gave me 2.5million cedis more so that I would get the same amount that the first person got. I post this photo today to thank Him . For his encouragement. He became my friend and started mentoring me to know how life works . That bureau was at Amakom and shared offices with luv fm. So if U know who I am talking about pls show me so I can go and thank him properly. By the way the Mc for the night was the legendary LOVIN CEE
