Hiplife artiste Emmanuel Botwe, known by stage name Kwaw Kese, has revealed that he has become a more responsible person after tying the knot.
The Yakubu hit maker, in April 2016, married long-time girlfriend Doris Nana Pokuaa Kyei Baffour. His wife later that year delivered a beautiful baby girl.
Speaking on GHOne TV on Thursday Aril 13, Kwaw Kese, also known as Abodam, noted that catering for his wife and child has made him more responsible than when he was single.
He said: “Most of the time I wake up at dawn to change diapers. Marriage has made me responsible, it has toned me down.”
Kwaw Kese recently stoked controversy when he sold off all the awards he has picked up at the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMAs), in protest at the declining standards in the biggest event in Ghana’s music industry.
“I managed to sell some of the awards on Saturday and although I did not have a fixed price, I sold them depending on the condition in which the awards were,” he remarked.
“The plaques that were in good condition went for a higher price while those that were cracked or chipped sold for much lower.
“There is a huge question mark about the awards because it appears the ultimate award goes to whoever publicly criticises the scheme. Some years ago, Shatta Wale publicly criticised the scheme and he received awards the [following] year.
“The gospel fraternity threatened to boycott this year’s awards and suddenly we have a gospel artiste winning the ultimate award.
“Many people are not happy with the way Charterhouse is conducting the awards lately and we have to come out and speak against it. Ghanaians are still in shock over the winner this year and this is not right.”
