In a photo that is fast going viral on social media, the American rapper who has won 161 awards from 399 nominations, including 14 Grammy Awards, was seen drinking sachet water on the streets of Ghana's capital, Accra.
Many Ghanaians have been surprised especially because most local celebrities avoid being seen behaving 'too local' like the average Ghanaian and they expected an internationally recognized artist like Kendrick to behave even classier.

When a Ghanaian starts getting money, they say they only drink bottled water because it's healthier, look at Kendrick Lamar drinking sachet water
I always thought Sarkodie was stingy till I met Kendrick Lamar. Man has been in the same outfit for over a week and he won’t even buy bottle water.
When Sark was struggling for his money where were you. It is his money and what he chooses to do with it is none of your business.
What stops you from making money and helping all the poor people in Tema?.. dont even spend a penny on yourself. allow people to enjoy their hard earned money... when he was struggling who came to his aid?
