Popular Ghanaian hiplife musician, C-Zar has revealed that he is shifting his focus from his music career to focus on more profitable ventures.
According to the musician, he doesn't want to die a pauper, therefore he has ventured into entrepreneurship.
Being in the industry for over a decade, the ‘Araba Lawson’ hitmaker told Zylofon FM on Tuesday that his decision was influenced by the fact that show business in Ghana is no more lucrative, and he could end up going broke.
To him, he started the electrical business alongside the music but realized that the music which was non-profit was taking most of his time hence had to choose one.
C-Zar in his media conversation stressed that his decision to venture into electrical business has helped him, therefore he has expanded by opening more branches.
“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," C-Zer said.
The one time hitmaker added that, “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. I nearly collapsed my electrical business because I was focused on doing music but realizing that the electrical business was more profitable, I had to quit the music”.
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 won him the Hiplife Song of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards in 2009.
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.
