The Ghanaian radio presenter and record label owner Hammer Kofi has released the names of Ghanaian musicians who make their money through Sakawa, but the public thinks they make it from music.
According to the Journalist, these Ghanaian musicians they call themselves celebrities post pictures of their property they own to lure people thinking they are into a legal and legitimate business.
In an interview with Angel FM monitored by nanansem.com, he disclosed this information.
“Though some rappers in Ghana make genuine money through their music, the music alone cannot make them gain all their wealth they display”. He said.
“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 explained.
“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 concluded.
