Sarkodie is a very smart guy because, unlike his colleagues who used their first big music money for booze and girls, he used his to buy an asset; An action worth emulating.
Sarkodie, the Ghanaian rapper, has revealed that his first earnings as a musician were used to buy a piece of land.
Sarkodie recalled a ten-year-ago incident in which he spent all of the money he earned from playing at an event to buy a house instead of spending it extravagantly.
During an exclusive interview with Pulse Kenya, Sarkodie revealed that he used his first big money to buy land.
The Ghanaian rapper said that the money came from a gig and that it was all invested in a piece of land when he was asked about his career and how he obtained his first big money.
In his own words;
I remember my first paycheque and it was from a show. Funny enough, it was a tough decision for someone who has been hustling for a while and I had to treat myself. I got a piece of land. Literally the whole money for a land,” he said in the interview.
the area has fast developed now but I still have my spot there. It’s a nice cute land with fly houses around it. The only thing is that the place is far away from me because everything I’m currently working on is close to me. Although the land is far from me, it’s still worth a lot now.
Sarkodie revealed that he prefers not to buy a lot of automobiles because he prefers to put his money into productive things which will eventually yield X3 of the money invested.
I don’t like spending money on cars. If I get a decent good car that stands the test of time, I could use it but I feel it’s not worth it. Financially, it doesn’t make sense. I don’t have many cars and if I want to get one, I want the type that regardless of time it will still look new
“I think a lot before I make a purchase. I’m the type who always want to make sure I don’t go broke
Sarkodie is currently on an African tour to promote his new album dubbed “No Pressure“. He was in Nigeria last week and now in Kenya.
