SAD: Barima Sidney Has Only One House After 25yrs Of Doing Rap Music – Shatta Wale Feeling Vindicated

Barima Sidney is broke

Reggie Rockstone recently descended heavily on Shatta Wale when he suggested that the rap game has not helped anyone in the country.

Reggie went on to mention several names of prominent musicians who are supposedly enjoying the benefits of the genre including Shatta himself but recent revelations from veteran hiplife artists have shown the contrary.

Shatta’s insistence that Sarkodie is broke and live a fake life might be laughable to most but it seems other rappers and hiplife artists might be struggling not excluding Barima Sidney.

Rapper Asem was recently mocked by Sarkodie for leaving the country to seek greener pastures abroad even though he had a prominent career in the hiplife scene.

Historically, Ex-Doe, Slim Buster all the way to Nana Kwame admitted to going abroad and working in a club and doing other menial jobs to provide for their families as doing music in Ghana only cometh with fame comparatively to money, theBBCghana.com reports.

Truth be told, one might struggle to point out 10 rappers who became rich from music. Maybe Fameye’s track “Nothing I Get” is the best description for the rappers and hiplife artists in the country.
