Rapper, Edem born Denning Edem Hotor says all Ghanaian artistes are poor.
According to him, the systems in Ghana have over the years not favoured musicians and therefore they pose as rich people even though things are not as it seems.
Edem who has done very well for himself in promoting the Volta Region and the Ewe language seems to be worried about what the future holds for the Ghanaian artiste.
His rants are as follows: “How can @Sarkodie span ten years in showbiz and not makeup to 20k ghana in those ten years from royalties..What do u want the artiste to live behind for their loved ones…”
“How can @shattawalegh release over 300 songs and not get a penny from it for its usage.”
“If artiste eat,Producers,Djays,bloggers,and all stakeholders would eat…But we are all hungry and we go shadda every day for the fam whiles we work and our work ourselves.”
“I am a hungry artiste because My country doesn’t take care of me..I can be buying sneakers if my fans join me on the mission of truth.”
“EVERY ARTISTE IN GHANA IS HUNGRY.SOME MIGHT JUST NOT SAY IT….LETS ALL DO SO THE WORLD KNOWS HOW OUR SYSTEM BE YAWA ABD IN THIS CORONA TIMES ARTISTES ARE SUFFERING.”
“I don’t plan on dying from the hunger we all face in the industry and I don’t want ppl after me to suffer either..So I am telling all you my fans that the nokofio “ would have flowed more if I wasn’t hungry.”
“My fans …And colleagues make we stop pose nice like everything be ok…If not we would meet the same fate ..Let me ask how much has Castro made since he vanished..What if his children are here and need to eat.”
“To know your future look at your past..Why Eib for donate money to Artiste,why every old Artiste go come radio to beg..We all for stop pose like everything be alright when we Dey hungry Cos the system doesn’t give us a future.”
“The corona season has shown how our systems and structures have left artiste and musicians in the cold…We work so hard and pose but every single Artiste is “hungry” How do we get paid ..We all Dey hung ..”
