- Joey B has been spotted riding in Trotro a couple of times
- Ghanaians concluded that he was broke and so now using that means of transportation
- Joey B has said he is not broke but rather he is learning humility by taking Trotro
YEN.com.gh reported the news of musician Joey B caught riding in a commercial vehicle, popularly called 'trotro'.
The reports went haywire, with many people concluding that the ‘Tonga’ hit maker was broke and so he had to resort to 'trotro' as his means of transportation.
However, in a reporte sighted by YEN.com.gh on Modern Ghana, Joey B has discounted claims by Ghanaians that he is a broke man.
Explaining his reasons for picking trotro, Joey B said he is learning humility by doing so.
According to him, he is from a humble background, and the fact that he is a celebrity now doesn’t mean he is above anyone picking trotro.
Joey B revealed that the news report that he was on board a commercial vehicle went really far, making a lot of people call to verify from him if all was well with him.
“I was really shocked when the news came out that I was broke and so boarding ‘trotro’. People called me; even my uncle called and was like Kwesi is everything okay with you? But the truth behind my picking trotro is that I was trying to portray something, I remember at a point in time when things were not all that rosy and my sister and I were picking trotro to school.”
It was a norm; my dad who is a graduate and a very nice man was picking trotro that means he was very humble. So I learnt from that, hey I need to teach people how to be humble; I can never be broke,” Joey B stressed.
He further advised his fans to also be humble, and look to him for more hit songs.
