While his colleagues in other countries focus on creating good music that would generate revenue and market their countries, Ghanaians, he claims, are more concerned with petty matters.
He believes that the country, its residents, and especially entertainers, should treat music as a business rather than something to do to pass the time so that some level of seriousness can be maintained.
"We popularize certain songs in which, in my opinion, the sensationalism and humour are excessive. Music isn't a joke; it's a serious business..."
"Why are we messing with it?" he added. We are continually setting an example for our neighbors. Have you noticed their seriousness? They're not going to sing what you say."
