Musician, Yaw Berk, has opened up about some of the things he dislikes doing and bathing is number one on his list.
While speaking in an interview at the studios of Accra FM, Yaw Berk accepted claims that he does not like bathing.
The Independent Lady hitmaker stated that indeed the rumours about him not liking bathing are true but did not start today.
According to the burgeoning star, the habit of not bathing was formed back when he was in senior high school.
Yaw Berk recounted how he attended a boys' school and, while there, that was the habit of most of his roommates and classmates.
He claimed most of the guys would bath on Sunday night and refuse to shower the following day before classes began; a practice known in most senior high schools in Ghana as 'carry forward'.
He, however, said he is trying to turn over a new leaf, so he takes a bath twice a day these days.
Yaw Berk was introduced into the music industry after he released the hit song titled Independent Lady. Prior to this, he took part in season 7 of MTN's talent hunt show, Hitmaker.
The matter of cleanliness and bathing came up for discussion and first appeared in media circles after award-winning music producer, Kaywa, disclosed that Yaw Berk was not used to bathing regularly.
Kaywa claimed the situation forced other artistes to leave the studio where they were lodging together with Berk.
Kaywa jokingly said his studios started smelling bad due to Yaw Berk’s behaviour.
Still on the case of musicians, Ghanaian gospel musician, Enoch Blessing Acquah, also known in the showbiz industry as EBA, has suggested that money, cars, mansions, and flashy lifestyles do not define one's success.
EBA believes you can be labelled successful if you fulfil the mandate God has given to you.
He made this statement when he appeared on the Kasapa Entertainment Show on Accra-based Kasapa FM.
EBA told the host, Eddie Ray:
When they say someone is successful, to humans, it’s about having cars, money and living a luxurious lifestyle. But God doesn’t judge success by the things you have. The Bible says success does not lie in the abundance of things that a man possesses.
