Veteran Highlife musician, Kwaisey Pee, has stated that no Ghanaian is fit to be called a celebrity at the moment.
Per his view, he is yet to see one celebrity in Ghana because we cannot compare the social and financial status of celebrities living in the Western World to our ‘so-called’ Ghanaian celebrities.
Kwaisey Pee was on the Daybreak Hitz show on Hitz FM when he was told that some A-list artistes such as Daddy Lumba, Sarkodie, Shatta Wale, and Stonebwoy could be called Celebrities. But he had this to say.
“We don’t have celebrities in Ghana. I have lived in the Western world and when we talk about celebrities we know. It’s the other way round here. I don’t consider myself as one. I wanna get to where they will call you that. It’s self-professed in Ghana. There is no celebrity in Ghana. They don’t have what it takes.” he told host KMJ.
The “Mehia Odo” hitmaker stated that one person who nearly became a celebrity was CEO of business conglomerates, Nana Appiah Mensah. His reason is that NAM 1 owned a private jet and all the luxurious cars at his disposal.
Kwaisey also added that some pastors are close to attaining the celebrity status because “they have the bodyguards, mansions and luxurious properties.
