Bill Asamoah said being a celebrity in Ghana brings with it the temptation to be arrogant. He said that sometimes as a celebrity one just wants to be in their corner, but that someone may push them to react arrogantly even though they don't know what the person will go tell other people.
"In all this, you have to be humble and that is one thing that I’m learning from this because if myself, should I pass away by the time God should take my life and I have half of this crowd to even come and then pay homage then it tells you that I did well. So it’s something I’m learning from whatever that is going on here that I need to be humble,” said Bill Asamoah.
