Ghanaian rapper C-Zar has alleged that music duo Akatakyie, spent their money they earned from music to chase after women and indulge in lavish lifestyle.
The musician who in 2018 said goodbye to music after gracing the industry for over a decade, noted that the duo failed to invest their resources in ventures that could have given them money but rather wasted the money on unnecessary things.
He was speaking to Togo Borga on GH Entertainment on Rainbow Radio 87.5 on the benefits musicians who signed under Soul Records got.
Akatakyie had told Togo Borga few weeks ago that their career path with Soul Records, was not the best because they were cheated and never benefitted from their sweat.
But C-Zar has rubbished the claims insisting the duo misused their opportunity given them by Soul Records.
According to him, a lot of his colleagues who were signed under Soul Records benefitted immensely.
In 2008, C-Zar kissed music goodbye and said his decision was influenced by the fact that show business was not lucrative.
“I have quit music for good, I don’t want to die poor. Sincerely, show business doesn’t pay in our part of the world. See how all the veterans die as if they have never been in the limelight.
I don’t even want to see myself in such a condition in future where my family has to appeal for funds to take care of me should I fall sick,” he said.
“It is for this reason that I have decided to say goodbye to this trade which only gives you fame and attention but doesn’t pay so well.
I can say that barely 10 people in showbiz are really raking in huge sums which suits their status as celebrities but in reality, many are broke because it doesn’t pay much,” he added.
In the early 2000s, C-Zar was one of the popular artistes in the Hiplife industry.
His hit songs like “Araba Lawson” and “Mercy Lokko” were on the charts and the latter song won him the Hiplife Song of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards in 2009.
C-Zar hit the limelight in the year 2000 with his debut album “Afei Na Ma-Ba”, eliciting many laughs for some of his lyrics and rhymes but also won admirers for his style.
C-zar enjoyed a good career with hit albums like Sunsum Sofo (2003), Araba Lawson (2006), Mercy Lokko (2008) with the last release being Azonto Pandemic in 2012.
