When it comes to celebrities who have not been shy to show off their marriages, especially on social media, Rapper Okyeame Kwame and his wife, Annica, are right at the top of that chain.
Over the years, the couple has posted pictures of themselves in public displays of affection, have shared a lot of insight into their marriage and on their anniversaries, they feed our sight with delectable pictures along with posts of affection.
While people think celebrities only show off their good sides on social media and hide the skeletons in their closets, Okyeame Kwame and Annica say they tell no lies about their marriage as they get ready to launch their first book, Love Locked Down, this weekend.
Speaking with Graphic Showbiz, they said they were not afraid of any added scrutiny publishing their book would bring to their marriage because they had been truthful.
“I think it is Plato who said that ‘truth is the object of all enquiry’ so there is no way I am bothered about scrutiny of my marriage. I’m not afraid of what it will bring because it is the truth,” Okyeame Kwame said.
Annica also chimed in saying, “If you’re not hiding anything, then there is nothing to be afraid of. We are not bothered by scrutiny because we are telling the story as it is, with zero embellishments.
“We don’t really care what anyone thinks about us or our marriage, we live our lives. We got married the way we wanted to, signing at the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) minus rings cost us about GH¢300 and we didn’t care what our family would say.
Love Locked Down, which Okyeame Kwame and Annica wrote with Kyei Amoako, the man who compiled their ideas for the book, is at its core, the experiences the two have gathered in their 12-year marriage and what they think other people can learn from.
The motivation for the book is from the many messages in their DMs from people seeking advice on relationships.
“We didn’t set out deciding to post pictures of us together on social media, as a couple, we just go with the flow. We don’t really plan to say post a picture and say something about it. But when we posted the pictures people started asking us questions in our inbox asking if marriage was as nice as we made it seem.
“Soon people started coming to us with marital problems and whenever we asked them questions, we realised that many people go into marriage knowing there are problems and then they end up not being able to handle it.
“So based on all that, we decided to put what we do into a book and also offer some of the recommendations we have given to people that have worked,” Annica explained.
