Ace rapper Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah popularly known in the entertainment industry as Tic Tac has indicated that all the current artistes who are flaunting their wealth as being the richest in the industry are jokers.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Class FM, the musician revealed that some of the more experienced musicians including Amakye Dede, Daddy Lumba and Kojo Antwi were the ones who could flaunt their wealth because of how they made waves for themselves.
The “Philomena” hit maker indicated that some of the current artistes who were ‘bragging’ of building multi-million cedi mansions and owning exquisite cars were just braggarts because their wealth was nothing compared to the wealth of some of the ace musicians.
He added that some of the current artistes bragged about selling 10,000 copies of their CD’s whist some of the more experienced artistes including Daddy Lumba sold 500,000 CD’s in a day.
Tic Tac revealed that wealth as defined by some current artistes was ‘an insult’ to some of the legends in the industry. He added that it was not necessary to compare the wealth of artistes since some people would not come close to the legends should their wealth be compared to them.
The artiste indicated that contemporary artistes should stop bragging about making history with their CD sales, money, houses or cars because it would be an affront to the experienced artistes who have unimaginable wealth.
Tic Tac made headlines in June 1999 when he dropped his debut album, “Philomena”. He became the first hip life artist to collaborate with anyone outside of Ghana with Freddie Meiway of Ivory Coast.
