In a recent interview, Kwame expressed doubt that any political leader could completely eradicate corruption given its deep-rooted prevalence in the current system.

"The corrupt system cannot fix itself, it makes a lot of people rich and happy. If a president wants to come and fight corruption in the country right now, he will be dead in 2 weeks," he asserted.

The ace rapper attributed the root cause of corruption to the mindset of the present generation of Ghanaians. He proposed instilling incorruptibility in the youth as the most effective long-term solution.

"The politician was put in power by you and me; they are a representation of us, so if they are corrupt, it shows that you are corrupt," Kwame stated. "I agree that politicians are causing problems, but as you fight the politicians, train your child not to think like a politician."

Okyeame Kwame was sceptical that increasing officials' pay would address the deep-seated issue. "It's not about pay; it's not about money; it's about morality," he claimed.

The rapper called for a shift in focus towards values-based education, which would help children cultivate integrity and ethical principles from a young age.
