There has always been one truth when it comes to Ghana and our celebrities— we don’t have a celebrity culture and in as much as all these people we have in the industry as passing off as celebrities, we all know they are no close to the word.
Unfortunately, we don’t see the narrative changing any time soon or it getting any better. Mostly, people who have lived outside the shores of the country, who have lived and seen how celebrities are glorified, love and worshipped have somehow accepted their fate. Looks like High life artiste Kwaisey Pee has come to terms with that. He says he is no celebrity.
“Back in the United Kingdom where I lived most of my life celebrities are worshiped, they are huge icons and you can’t even go close to them.
“They have the money to back their talent, their royalties alone can sustain them for a life time. They live luxurious life, drive the best cars, own private jets and many have huge investments credited to their names. But over here it’s not the case as most of our celebrities struggle to put up a face to their names and it’s not funny.
“If we had royalty laws to guide our craft, i am sure our status would change. So i would plead with the laws of the land to help all the collective bodies to help our arts and entertainment.”
