HipLife artiste Okyeame Kwame has been named an ambassador by the Ministry of Trade & Industry for its made-in-Ghana(MIG) campaign.
The rapper will use his brand to promote made-in-Ghana products.
Okyeame Kwame is expected to travel to all the 10 regions of Ghana to promote domestic products and services.
A letter written by the ministry to cement the partnership disclosed that Okyeame Kwame’s made-in-Ghana songs will also be adopted for all MIG activities.
