“In the industry you need a sponsor in other to survive. I had a couple of them but i had a major one and i just don’t want to mention her name. I was 24 years and she was 28 very rich. She actually took care of all my studio and production expenses in London. She was actually trying to sell me to the international market. For London it cost almost about 300 pounds and above for a studio session. So to have someone to pay for your rent and studio expenses that’s really lovely. But you know this your Ghanaian Pharisees whiles you trying yo be nice with them as part of your job description, they end up snitching on you. That was what brought about the break up with my sponsor which nearly ended my music career. And bear in mind that they are a kind of people when the trust is broken that’s all nothing can bring them back”. He explained
