Although things are improving in the music industry and some artistes such as Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Shatta Wale are believed to be making millions of cedis with their craft, rapper EL says it is not possible for any Ghanaian artiste to make a fortune solely from music.
“Music is just a means to an end. You cannot leave a legacy through music. It is actually the businesses you use your music for. How much can you sell an album or a song in Ghana? Any artiste who says he made a fortune only through music is a liar,” he told Showbiz recently.
According to the Koko hitmaker, not even the many shows Ghanaian artistes brag of can bring them such huge money.
“Forget about the shows because I have mounted every show in Ghana and they doesn’t pay that much. The money we get from shows is peanuts; it only lasts for a month or two.”
“No artiste in Ghana can tell me he built a house or made a big fortune with an album or a particular song. I challenge any musician to come and contest me. It is how you direct your music into other businesses,” he said.
EL revealed he was involved in other businesses hence the reason he has been on the low for a while. Although he failed to make mention of the business he is into. Remember EL was tipped to be Ghana’s beacon of hope in terms of rap after wining VGMAs Artiste of The Year award.
But someway somehow, the sensational music career of Elorm Adablah aka EL took a nosedive for reasons best known to him. He has been struggling to make a blistering comeback despite 1001 trials.
