Shatta Wale has made a list of Ghanaian musicians who were neither business-minded nor smart when they started their career in the art.
The SM4LYF Records act made this known when quizzed by Deloris Frimpong-Manso aka Delay on The Delay Show in respect to Ex Doe‘s comments that his excessive pride abruptly ended his career.
“I have seen the downfall of many artist because they weren’t smart,” he said.
He eventually listed Ex Doe, Tic Tac, K.K. Fosu and Kokoveli as musicians who were not smart when they started their career in music.
“YES! They weren’t business minded. I’m taking advantage of the fame I have now. If I’m no more famous, I want to be seen working for a big company somewhere,” he mentioned.
“We are in an industry where people enjoy going abroad. Four years down the lane you see them and wonder what happened. I feel most of the things the critics say is just out of envy,” he added.
He is set to host the SM Sanlah Remix event this weekend in Nima, a suburb of Accra.
