Born on June 20, 1970 at the 37 Military Hospital in Accra, Kwami's father was in the military and grew up in Burma Camp, attending Garrison Primary School and Central Preparatory. Kwami whose mother is from the Eastern Region with father from the Volta Region describes his childhood at Burma Camp as fun but traumatic as well, because of the coup d'etat in the late 70s and early 80s. He then proceeded to Okuapeman Senior High School in Akuapem-Akropong for his secondary education. He stayed in the North of Ghana for one year where he did his national service at Savelugu Nanton.
