No Ghanaian Artiste Is Making Money From Music – EL Reveals


Rapper and singer EL has revealed that no Ghanaian artiste is making money from music.

According to the “Koko” singer in an interview with Showbiz, albums don’t sell and the money from shows are peanuts so artists make money from different deals.

“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 said.

Surprisingly he also revealed that not even Sarkodie, Stonebwoy or Shatta Wale are making money from shows.
