Guru, who is known in real life as Maradona Yeboah Adjei, said after he featured legendary rapper, Obrafour, on his 'Kasiebo' hit song, he made enough money to buy a Toyota Corolla.

He added that anytime he went 'chilling' in town with his car, people tagged him as a 'fraud boy' because the people felt he was too young to own such a car.

But the 'Lapaz Toyota' hitmaker said he was not disturbed by what the people were saying because he knew he was working hard for his money.

“When I featured Obrafuor in ‘Kasiebo’, I bought my personal car. It was one of these Corolla cars. When I was balling in town with the car, I was accused of money rituals. I have heard people call me game boy several times," he said in an interview on UTV.

Guru urged Ghanaians to stop branding all young people who are living rich lifestyles as 'fraud boys' because some of these young people are really working hard to earn their monies.

“Here in Ghana, everyone feels that any young man living a financially stable life is involved in fraud, but that isn’t always the case. The economy we live in makes it difficult for a young person to even buy a bicycle; so when you are driving a car, then you have a problem,” the 'Pooley' hit singer said.
