Hammer Kofi Nti, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Hammer Productions and Host of Hammer Time on Kumasi’s Pure FM informed the public that numerous Ghanaian rappers acquire their money through fraudulent means.
In the opinion of the radio host, although there are are indeed rappers who earn their money through legitimate means, there are others who are actually fraudsters but pretend to earn their money solely through music.
“Though some rappers in Ghana make genuine money through their music, the music alone cannot make them gain all their wealth they display,” he told Ike De Unpredictable on Kumasi’s Angel FM.
“Some of the Rappers engage in scamming and fraud but as for them they do it themselves while others have teams who do it and transfer the money into their accounts for them to get their share,” he continued.
“Ike, some of them are rappers just to make Ghanaians confused about their wealth but they are doing real business aside from the music. If today your Producer Nana Wiser is driving Range Rover won’t it be strange if you compare his salary to the car he is driving?” Hammer further added.
“A barber at Bantama who is a scammer cannot receive some amount of his/her bank account that person will use the rapper’s bank details to receive the money then later they share among themselves,” he explained.
Contributing to the discussion, Amanzeba Fifi Smith, an Entertainment Pundit said, “Some of the rappers are real scammers and fraudsters, not musicians.”
“Ike have you asked yourself why some rappers have more boys following them? They use them for business and that business gives them money than the music.”
“A rapper with just one hit song will tell Ghanaians he is making money from his music like YouTube and other channels. Yes, they can get money from YouTube but comparing their wealth including the cars they display you will get confused. They have their real business they do with their boys aside from the music which is scamming people to make money” Amanzeba further added.
