Okyeame Kwame has been appointed the United Nation’s ambassador for the Dedicated Grand Mechanism campaign on climate change.
The announcement of this office was made at the Solidaridad Office at East Legon in Accra.
Kwame’s responsibilities will include helping to drum home the impact of climate change and using his art to project the cause.
“We sent some of our staff around to ask who within the showbiz is so serious by way of how he takes his own business and has carved for himself a brand that resonates positively with the people in our society. And we had a lot of critical discussions and we were unanimous that Okyeame Kwame has made a name in the showbiz space and has a clout in terms of respect for him,” said Isaac Gyamfi, Regional Director of Solidaridad West Africa.
Okyeame Kwame, on the other hand, said, “I believe that if you can put the interest of other people first, that is when you are living the life that God wants you to live. I strongly believe that for us to develop as a people everybody must use their positive attitude, instincts, abilities, talents for the society to grow.”
