He said; In Ghana Music Does Not Pay If You Are Not A Celebrity!

Mr Yuppie continue by saying , every event planner will go for a decorated musician like Kuami Eugene, Shatta Wale, Sarkodie and others because they have a fan base already, and he or she will be thinking that putting an upcoming musician on the show will not help him get his profit.
