He recently revealed that if he was in their shoes, some people in Ghanaian music industry would try their possible best to get him jailed for 6 years.
According to him, Ghanaian creatives should learn from Nigerian singers who did all they can via social media to secure Omah Lay and Tems’ release.
He added that it is best for musicians to show love to themselves for the Ghanaian music industry to grow.
