He is not only an artist, entrepreneur and a creative director. He is now also a holder of a Master's Degree. Kwame Nsiah Apau, or more popularly known as Okyeame Kwame the Rap Doctor, recently received his Master's Degree from the University of Ghana Business School.

As a young boy, his parents expected him to become a doctor. However, his focus in his younger years pointed towards rap music. As a student in Anglican Senior High in Kumasi, he joined several local shows and performances that would require him to showcase his rapping skills.
