Dorcas Opoku Dakwa known professionally as Abrewa Nana, a Ghanaian singer, songwriter, dancer and former Idol series judge, has revealed on GH Entertainment that her career as a musician, brought her only fame but not enough money as expected.
The musician in an exclusive interview with Toga Borga said although she got the fame she wanted, the money aspect was not encouraging.
She however indicated that her determination, hard work and other skills aside music, gave her a solid foundation financially.
Abrewa Nana said she wouldn’t say the music gave her the money, to invest in other businesses but rather it was through the fame that she was able to get the opportunity to generate the resources for her other businesses.
When asked if she was okay with what music brought her she said, I am okay. Music is a talent and just like ministry. I am happy and okay with what music did for me.”
Comparing her days to the current shape of the industry today, she said, musicians are making money from music currently. In the past, it was difficult to even get sponsorship for shows. Today, we have people who understand the industry and are willing to invest in music. It is easier this day than back then. Companies today, are calling musicians to be their brand ambassadors, it was not like that in the past, ” she added.
