Some hours after the release of the list, Okyeame Kwame has come out publicly to state that he has not officially been appointed to the Manifesto Committee of Vice President Dr Mahamadu Bawumia.

He has also added that he is not politically affiliated with the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

In the press release signed on February 24, 2024, by Okyeame Kwame, he stated that he had not been paid for this task.

“I wish to reassure my respected following and reiterate that I remain non-partisan and apolitical, as I have been throughout my entire career. I have not been paid by H.E. The Vice President’s campaign team to be a member of the committee for the arts and tourism manifesto nor have I officially been invited on my terms as non-partisan participant,” he emphasized. 

The rap doctor added that he is open to all other political parties that seek to tap into his expertise in the creative industry but he insisted that it must be done properly and on his terms because he is apolitical.

In as much as he said that he wanted the right thing to be done, Okyeame Kwame thanked the Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia for reposing trust in his experience.
