UK-based Ghanaian international singer and performer, Princess Akua Ohenewaa Asieanem better known as Stephanie Benson says doing music in Ghana is a problem because it doesn't pay, unlike other countries.
She explains by saying that she sometimes get shocked when some Ghanaian musicians like Shatta Wale brag that they have money.
“The One More” hitmaker, who is also the owner of the Benson Entertainment Production Institute (BEPI) further revealed that she has seen people who have a lot of money back in the United Kingdom and can even afford a helipad at the back of their houses but those people do not brag and as such, when she sees Ghanaian musicians brag down here about money, she gets surprised.
Stephanie Benson also intimated that some of the artistes in Ghana sometimes may just get some two million cedis or dollars and begin to brag that they have money but that to her is no money, as someone may just finish that amount in just a year and not break a sweat over it.
The Jazz music star admitted that one can get a lot of money down here only if he/she has a very good brand and get more gigs but not just the music sells.
