C-Zar who was reported to have said days back that he has quit music has given reasons for his action.
The ace rapper on May 26 launched his new firm, Lucky Electrical Shop at Adenta where he revealed that there is no money in Ghanaian music. According to him, he has been juggling between music and selling of electrical materials for years but finally agreed to put music aside and focus mainly on the company because he wanted to “reach higher heights” since “music cannot feed me”.
The rapper made it clear at the ceremony to outdoor his new venture that electrical company yields more money than music so he sees no reason in wasting time in rapping to entertain his fans without making enough money when he can use the same time to selling electrical materials and make a lot of income.
C-Zar further refuted assertion that he was not good as a rapper and that is the reason why he settled on selling of products instead of continuing what made him popular.
“My elder brother is the president of Ghana Trade Union and Ghana Electrical Association so it was only right for me to follow his steps since he has more knowledge about the business.There are a lot of advantages I can benefit from my elder brother so it was only important I follow him and that is why I’ve put the music aside because it cannot feed me.. The fly cannot give me money.
Everybody can attest to it that I never flopped in music, I won awards, had nominations for awards several times, attained fame and enjoyed everything in music so I don’t need music for fame again” C-Zar said at the launch.
When asked about his next business line, the ‘Araba Lawson’ hitmaker revealed that he is planning on stating real estate business. C-Zar is not the only musician who has been heard saying there is no cash in the Ghanaian music industry. Legendary highlife musician, Rex Omar was also reported to have made same comments weeks ago.
