Okyeame Kwame, the renowned Ghanaian rapper has urged young individuals to avoid blindly adhering to every piece of advice they receive in order to avoid unnecessary limitations in their lives.
During a recent interview on Joy Prime TV, the popular artist emphasized the importance for today’s youth to disregard advice that holds no potential to positively impact their future.
Okyeame Kwame expressed his belief that every person possesses two distinct voices within them: the voice of their physical desires and the voice of God or their spiritual essence.
He strongly advocated for prioritizing the guidance provided by the spiritual voice, encouraging individuals to listen to the divine voice over the fleeting desires of the body.

In his own words…
Don’t listen to advice. I beg you, young people. Because after listening to advice over the years, look at where we are.
“What I am saying is nothing new. If you pay attention, if you meditate on your thoughts you will see that what I am saying is what you know already,”
The voice of the body wants you to overeat, it wants you to be lazy, it wants you to cheat your boss, it wants you to cut corners, it wants you to do all the things that you must do as quickly as possible without a lot of effort. And the voice of God in you wants you to love, it wants you to meet the right people, it wants you to sacrifice, it wants you to pummel your body, it wants you to be the boss over your body so that you can behave like Christ, or Mohammed or that good guy that you want to be like. Listen to that voice of God.”
He added; “most of the people who advise you are afraid for you. You want to be a rapper but your parents say no become a doctor. They are afraid that if you become a rapper you will amount to nothing. Look at me, I think I have become something. Sarkodie, look at M.anifest, they are all rappers, they have wives, they are living their lives and they are a good source of inspiration in the society,”.
