When asked if he thinks Nana Appiah is being exploited, he replied saying;
“He has a plan, when he associates with people, he doesn’t do it for the mere sake of association. He has what he wants as well, so if you can’t satisfy what he is looking for, he’ll disassociate himself from you at a point in time.”
The ‘dream’ hitmaker threw some light on his personal way of giving back to his investor
“I have an album to release, I take money for promotions. What am I giving back to the company to sell?, an album.”
