My chieftaincy role will not prevent me from doing music - Kaakyire Kwame Appiah

Legendary highlife musician, Kaakyire Kwame Appiah, who is set to be enstooled as ‘Benkumhene’ of Bosomtwe Asaman, Kokofu in the Ashanti Region has indicated that his chieftaincy will not bring an end to his career.

According to him, becoming a chief will not prevent him from feeding the souls of Ghanaians with good highlife music.

He told Fiifi Pratt on Accra-based Kingdom Plus 101.9FM that, music is his passion hence he is not retiring anytime soon.

Kaakyire Appiah, who has had a successful career in the music industry spanning over three decades, has numerous hit singles to his credit including ‘Bronya’, ‘Soroku’, ‘Odo Macho’, among others.

His enstoolment ceremony, which would take place on September 20, 2021, would witness the musician enstooled Chief of Lake Bosomtwe Diteiso under the stool name ‘Nana Ofisibedei Adeiemudro Trimude.’

The ‘Kwadonto’ hitmaker, after going through the customary and traditional processes as ‘Bekumhene’, would be the caretaker of Lake Bosomtwe, the only natural lake in Ghana.
