Interview By :Dorinda Nimpah
CM: Hello Prince,Could you give our readers a short description about yourself and your upcoming programme?
KWAKU KWAME: Oh ok. Umm….. My name in full is Prince Mawutor Kwaku Kwame, Kwaku Kwame because my surname is Kwame 😅😅.Am From a family of 5.Mum, Dad and two kid sisters. I hail from the Volta Region, Alavanyo to be precise.
I started my early education in Ho, where I was enrolled at Dora Memorial School Complex,Before later moving to Silicon Valley International School at Ofankor Accra. I spent about a year at Ghana Atomic Energy Commission Basic School though.
I had my secondary education at Pope John Senior High in Koforidua and I would be going to my fourth year of tertiary education this September, at BlueCrest college Ghana,Reading Bsc Information Technology.
CM:Oh cool. Okay let’s talk about your music ministry. How did it all get started?
KWAKU KWAME: Well I was doing bathroom singing all my life until I started coming out in secondary school.
That was when I actually realised my potentials. So my first choir were the Pope John choir and the Mystical Vibes, all in Pope John. Before I later started serving in the youth department of my church(Charismatic Evangelistic Ministry, North Legon). Before ministry, I had several prophecies from trusted men of God. I couldn’t stick with just what I was hearing so I had to enquire of the Lord to have inner conviction.So I had to pray for a whole year and wait on the Lord before birthing Journey to the Throne Room.
CM : That’s great .But how has it been so far? The support…feedback…etc
KWAKU KWAME : So far God has been in charge. Support is coming in good and feedback is awesome.Last year was the first edition of Journey to the Throne Room And without much publicity God filled the auditorium
CM: Wow. That’s wonderful. So would you say you possess some special qualities that help you in your music ministry? Perhaps the way you deal with people, discipline etc.
KWAKU KWAME: Well I don’t think I possess any special qualities….. But I try to love people and maintain a level of discipline although we might be closely related. But what I would say is helping me in my music ministry is prayer, discipline and wanting to learn more each time.
CM: Nice! How would you describe the genre of music you do?
KWAKU KWAME : Well I’m able to flow in almost all the genres. Nothing specific for now.
CM: But as a person? Have you faced any challenges that threatened your ministry at any time?
KWAKU KWAME:: Yeah quite a number of challenges. Some people wouldn’t just like you anymore ,sometimes because, they can’t keep up.
CM: hehe. I can relate. Am sure you have favourite musicians ,can you mention a few?
KWAKU KWAME: Well I don’t have favourites though… I just have those I learn from. Pastor Isaiah Fosu-Kwakye Jnr, Rev Denzel Agyemang Prempeh, Joe Mettle, William McDowell and Kirk Franklin.
CM: Mmmm can you give us some of the things they do that you learn from?
