He remarked “As for Ghana when you are here and you decide to do music, you might go hungry and it’s true so if someone tells you that they’ve been able to make it through music then it’s a lie.
According to the music producer and ‘Yeni Da Ho’ crooner, making money in the Ghanaian entertainment industry is quite difficult considering the huge investments.
“Let me say that if someone says he’s made it through movies or music it’s impossible because it’s only football that there’s money in it through the entertainment industry,” he added.
“Because for music you’ll spend a lot of money to go and record your song and shoot a music video but everywhere you take the song to you need to pay before they’ll play,” he said on Cape Coast-based Property Radio.
