Our music was popular but we couldn’t even build a house from it- Akatakyie



Veteran Ghanaian musicians Prince Kwabena Budu and Ebenezer Kwasi Okyere known in the music industry as Akatakyie, have revealed that although their music was popular in the country, they failed to make any monetary gains from it.

According to the music duo, their management failed woefully to monetise their music, hence, leaving them with nothing to show for it.

They made this revelation during an interview with Ohemaa Woyege on Angel FM’s Y’adwumanie show.


“We didn’t acquire enough money to construct a house out of music, but when we tell people, they don’t believe us because our music is popular…and this was due to our terrible management, therefore we are now our own managers,” they revealed.
