To him, launching a side business while still active and relevant in the industry is priceless. He added that whether solely owned, partnership, or ordinarily fronting it, having a side business is a great idea.

Commenting, for instance, on Shatta Wale's Shaxi launch, Ameyaw Debrah said that there are rumours going around that the Shaxi Business is not really owned by Shatta Wale and that he is just fronting it.

He stressed that whether Shatta owns the business or he is only fronting it, it is still a thing for his brand and business.
