There has been a notion in town that our favorite celebrities who spend their income lavishly travel abroad to wash bowls and clean toilets when they get broke.
Rapper Okyeame Kwame once told his story on how he worked at a restaurant in the States after he blew money from his music career on useless living in the early 2000s.
Latest to affirm the perception is Ghanaian Dancehall singer, Sonni Balli. Sony was an active musician in the early 200s and he is said to be one of the pioneers in dancehall genre in Ghana but he disappeared at the peak of his career.
Speaking i an interview with Kastle FM, Sonnie Balli, who is now based in the UK, said he sees nothing wrong with celebrities traveling to the state to wash bowls.
“What I will say is that every job is a job. So far as you don’t go and commit a crime or steal what belongs to someone then you are obviously cool. When you do menial jobs abroad and you can use it to feed yourself and you don’t get yourself into trouble then that’s fine with me.”
He added that as long as they do not steal but work menial jobs to survive, there is nothing wrong with it.
“So far as abroad is concerned there is a lot of jobs here for anyone so far as you are prepared to work. There is no room for laziness abroad but I have been traveling abroad since my childhood days so it’s not anything new to me”
