Rapper Okyeame Kwame has revealed that he first learned the rudiments of rap under one guy called Lord Marcus based in Kumasi.

He said Marcus insisted that he (Okyeame) studies hard in school before he can consider him as his student for rap tutorials. He mentioned this in an interview with The Chronicle.

I grew up with no confidence as a result. When I completed my O levels in 1992, I had all 9s except Akan that I had 2. There was this rapper in Kumasi called Lord Marcus. I went to him and asked him to teach me how to rap. Then he said I want to see your O levels results; when he saw it, he said I am blockheaded, you can’t rap.

But then I pleaded with him and he said you know what, I am going to teach you how to rap but rap is an intelligent game. He said he would give me a book and then he will teach me one literary device and will ask me to read the book in four days and underline all the metaphors, alliteration, personification, etc.

The rapper also revealed he was born with brain disorders known medically as dyslexia and dyscalculia. According to Okyeme Kwame, he was unable to identify speech sounds and has difficulty in making arithmetical calculations.

I was born dyslexic so even when I was 10 years old, I couldn’t say my ABC or my 123. My father was so troubled that he is very smart but his son is not smart. They were not able to diagnose that it was dyslexia and dyscalculics so they became very afraid that I would grow up and become nothing” Okyeame Kwame revealed.
