Ghanaian Highlife Artiste, Kaakyire Kwame Fosu, has stated that the music industry pays, contrary to what some people think.
KK Fosu averred that musicians need to learn a lot in order to make it.
“It is funny when people say music doesn’t pay. People hate the truth in Ghana. And many people do not want to learn. The Ghanaian music industry is moving forward. The killing of talents is our problem. We have so many talents but we need to treat them well,” he told Melvina Frimpong Manso on Suncity Radio’s Showbiz 971 in Sunyani.
“I have made a lot. Music has helped me. I will be a liar if I tell you that music has not helped me. I have been able to take care of my wife and children all because of music and I have travelled a lot. I have been on so many stages,” KK Fosu declared.
KK Fosu, who is from a family of singers said he put more seriousness on his work.
“I am music. I am from a family which are talented. My dad was a very powerful treble singer in a bad. All members of my family are singers. God has been the backbone of anything that I do. If you have the talent, you won’t go and learn. It is good to have the talent. I don’t play when I am doing music,” he stated.
The ‘Anadwo Yede’ hitmaker revealed that he is also into football management.
“I went outside the country. I went into football management. I manage footballers; I have footballers outside the country. I nurture them. I am doing some courses on football management. You cannot do one
thing at a time...so now I am back to do music fully. I have players in Europe, Asia. My investment in football will make me one of the richest artistes in Ghana in the next five (5) to ten (10) years. I started doing this in 2002. Ask Sly Tetteh and he will testify. I kept this from the public eye,” KK Fosu disclosed.
KK Fosu further stated that he is working on his new album titled ‘I Am Back ’.
