Veteran highlife musician, Obouba J. A. Adofo has advised young musicians to focus on making money than being popular.

According to him, a concentration on gaining popularity instead of money is a recipe for disaster. He cited that during his time, musicians were more interested in getting famous and that has cost them.

’’Yes, fame is sweet but make money now. Forget about being famous because when you stop doing music, your fame will not pay the bills. Know that it is the money you were able to make in your heyday that will pay the bills… We didn’t see our talent as our career or job. We saw it as pleasure and an avenue to be popular. If you concentrate on becoming famous, you will retire and you will not have anything to your name and you will end up depending on the kind gestures of people,” he told Showbiz.

The Black Chinese, as known by industry players, has over 100 albums and a number of hit songs to his credit. The songs include Yaa Boatemah, Nya Asem Hwe, Mayeyi Ne Sumena, Owu Mpaso, Ankwaanobi, Akutiabo, Akwanoma Dede and Blackman.
