1 min


Edem has opened up on how his professional journey began and the amount he managed to rope in for his first ever paycheck.
Edem, who broke out onto the music scene during the latter part of the 00’s, said he received Ghc 150 for his first ever paid performance, which looking at the time it must have happened is not bad at all for an upcoming star.
The rapper, real name Denning Hotor, spoke with some fans on twitter and opened up to them in a ‘Q&A’ session.
A fan asked him if he remembered how much he earned for his first ever performance and he responded:  “First show after compilation was 150 ghc.”
