Samini Discouraged Me From Becoming A Vegetarian – Okyeame Kwame
As every important journey or task, it comes with a little discouragement from people who may truly care.
According to Okyeame Kwame, he started his vegan journey ten years ago but when he started, he had a little discouragement from colleague musician, Samini.
He indicated that 10 years ago, he told Samini that he was going to be a vegetarian.
He added that, Samini told him he was too skinny so if he decides to become a vegan, his weight will see a drastic decrement, so Samini discouraged him from being a vegetarian.
Okyeame said Samini was a vegetarian 6 years before discouraging him, but now he (Samini) has been a vegetarian for 16 years.
The “Yee Ko” hitmaker decided to go vegan because he believes that a human being is a multiple cell organism and when we eat plants — which is a single cell organism — it has the propensity to affect our health.
He said he is almost 100 per cent vegan and that his new journey has helped him become more conscious and has drawn him closer to God.
He encouraged his followers to be vegetarians if possible.
