The SM President, Shatta Wale Born Charles Nii Armah Mensah has said that many Ghanaians are of the view that Ghanaian musicians are rich but in reality they are poor and just living fake lives on social media.
According to him Ghanaian celebrities are not rich at all but project themselves on social media as if they have arrived.
Speaking in an interview with Sammy Flex he said he was chastised for saying Ghanaian musicians are poor on UTV.
He said; “When I said in an interview on UTV that Ghana musicians are poor including Reggie Rockstone, I was crucified. I had to apologize to Reggie and explain that I am not exempting himself from the ‘poor’ description.
“However, it is the way we live that gives the false sense of hope to many who believe we are making it big,” he added.
Speaking on the ban imposed on celebrities by the FDA not to advertise alcoholic beverages, Shatta called on all his colleagues to unite and stage a protest against the move.
