Okyeame Kwame has said physical stress endured by colleague musicians can lead to heart attacks.
The "Tension" rapper made this statement during an interview with 3news.com and called on fellow musicians to take their health issues more seriously.
He stated that physical stress does have dire consequences on the health of musicians which usually results in heart attacks.
“Because of the nature of the show business in Ghana, an artiste who has a small team like I do and wants to make an impact will have to go to the studio and stay there all night, wake up at the time when corporate people are going to work to send his proposals.
“He works as a corporate person in the afternoon. At night when corporate people are resting, he is in the studio creating, and that is the recipe for heart attack”.
Musicians are noted for spending long hours in the studio trying to develop new ideas for their music Some travel around the country and beyond for concerts and hardly get any sleep during that period.
