Kwame Nkansah – Butah is a trained Agricultural Engineer from Kwame Nkrumah University of Science & Technology (KNUST) but a Creative Director at BM-Live. I am also a TV/Radio Director & Producer.
The Passion for Showbiz Started in my Basic School; State Experimental where my peers called me Jay Z because i could rap any Jay Z’s song then later in the Second Cycle school days at Armed Forces Sec/Tech where I studied General Science. I formed a Music Group with myself and Lil’ Prophet called Blinkzquad where we rock stage at our School’s Entertainment activities.
The passion grew stronger when i was appointed as the Queen’s Hall JCRC Entertainment committee member then later the Entertainment chairman of the hall during the 2010/11 academic.
Through my hard-work I became the KNUST SRC Entertainment Chairman in the 2011/12 academic year and one of the most patronised SRC weeks was organised by myself and my dedicated team.
Entertainment has been with me wherever I went to and during my last academic year i studied Music and Video Production as a V.C course in school. This gave me the platform to learn a lot in the making of music and production of video and with guidance from Jeneral Jay of Phrames Ghana, I learnt Camera operation and basic Video Editing.
With the Writing, it started in the University when i started writing articles for our hall’s noticeboard. It feels good to write something which can educate or affect the lives of people so I kept learning ways to reach out to more people with my articles till i started blogging in my second year in KNUST. I have written articles on Education, Health and sanitation and these articles have been featured in popular Ghanaian media outlets like Today Newspaper, Myjoyonline.com and ghanaweb.com.
After School I did my national service at Agricultural Engineering Services, Somanya and later joined Light Television as the head of Editors and also Programmes Producer. I left Light Light TV after a year and formed my own company ‘Blinkz Multimedia – Live or BM-Live.’ With this company I hope to improve the showbiz industry with my skilled acquired and also learn more from the industry.
