Okyeame Kwame Advocates for EOCO to Target Politicians in Lifestyle Audits

Prominent Ghanaian rapper Okyeame Kwame has advised the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) to focus its intended lifestyle audits on politicians rather than celebrities.


He contended that politicians are prone to leading extravagant lives fueled by corruption.


During an interview with Berla Mundi on Accra-based TV3’s ‘New Day’ show, Okyeame Kwame expressed that the celebrity domain in Ghana faces challenges, and artists aren’t experiencing the level of unrestricted wealth that EOCO’s investigations are purportedly targeting.


“I have been in the celebrity space for 20 something years, I do not think they will find any artiste who are

“criminals” or many celebs and film makers because these people are suffering. It is very difficult to be in this industry as an influencer or artiste and then just by that be able to survive. I have not seen celebrities in Ferraris or Maybachs or Porsche cars or multimillion dollar mansions. Where are they? Show me one,” he said.

In contrast, the rapper noted many politicians and civil servants live lives of opulence that are disproportionate to their official salaries.

“However, the people that I have seen living lavishly are politicians. I have seen civil servants who make maybe $14000 a month and driving S-class,” he stated.

“They are going to start investigating celebrities and in less than 30 days, they will be done because it is obvious that there are no or very few celebrities who are enjoying unwarranted wealth,” he stressed.

His comments come as EOCO signals plans to step up lifestyle audits in the wake of fraud allegations against musician Hajia 4Real.
