One of the most recognizable faces of Gospel music in Ghana in the early 2000s, Edward Akwasi Boateng had shared a sad tale of how he almost his fortune.
The Kumasi-based gospel musician told Akoma FM’s Kwantenpon Drive with Tony Best that he was able to acquire a house and 17 cars but has sold all the cars to settle his debt.
“My ‘Adea me p3’ album alone sold 555,000 copies and I used part of the money to build my first house which I currently reside in.
“I bought 17 cars while I was in my prime, but as we speak, I don’t own even one. I sold all of them because cassette sales were down and I needed to feed myself and the family and again to settle some debts I owed a bank.”
The musician who has seven albums to his credit is currently making sales off his music on various digital platforms.
