Money & Fame is stupidity - Kontihene

As many young guys are praying to gain money and fame, Kontihene, who just released his fifth album titled “Munumkum”, has stated that the two – money and fame to him is stupidity.

The ‘Aketesea’ hitmaker said Africans consider what will bring money and fame to them more than what they have been called to do.

Speaking to Bra Chef on Radio Univers 105.7 early Tuesday morning, he said “In Africa, anything that will bring money or fame to people, they consider that one first than their call being. Right now everybody is drawing their lines on money and fame which to me is stupidity”

“You can’t be famous than God, you can’t be popular than God and you can’t be rich than the maker who placed gold under the sun” he stressed.

Christened Emmanuel Nana Appiah Boateng, Kontihene will marry his long time girlfriend Dulcie this Saturday January 18 in Sunyani.

Kontihene’s 5th album, “Munumkum”, includes songs like ‘In Love ‘ which features Dada KD, ‘Ohia ye ya’ which has Akwaboah on it, Sweet Candy which featured Kwaisey Pee, I go Die, Too Fine and others.
