I want to be a billionaire -Raquel
Super stars in showbiz often desire to leave lasting legacies: The best in their field, their humanitarian side and for their wealth and fame. Sultry Ghanaian singer, Raquel, has settled for wealth and fame.
She told Showbiz last Monday that she wants to see her name on the list of richest people on earth. ‘I want to be remembered not just for my good works as a good musician, but one who was very influential and rich.
‘Anytime I take a reflection on my life and where I am heading to, I just tell God to give me the strength to work harder to make the wealth I have been craving for. I want God to bless my handiworks and crown my toil with success. I want to be mentioned just like the Oprah Winfreys and the Bill Gates. I want to be a billionaire. That has been my prayer’ she stated.
The Sweetio hit maker said her wish to be very wealthy has nothing to do with material things but a long time passion of helping the underprivileged and making life meaningful for others.
‘I get really down when I see people suffering with no one to assist them and these things motivate me to work harder to make a lot of money so that I can be a blessing to them’ she added.
Raquel said that whatever modest success she has achieved has been as a result of hard work and regular practice.
Raquel may be enjoying all the praises now for being one of the most sought after female artistes in the country today but the Lovi Dovi singer is still smouldering from the unpleasant experience at Citi FM’s Decemba 2 Rememba concert in 2011 where a wardrobe malfunction exposed her private parts to her audience.
Touching on what she termed as ‘unholy incident’ after almost two years, Raquel told Showbiz it was an unpleasant experience which she doesn’t want to remember because most people judged her wrongly based on that.
‘It hurts to hear people make wrong judgement because of one incident which wasn’t intentional.
Even though she is yet to receive any award, Raquel is poised to grab an award at this year’s 4syte Music Video Awards after being nominated in the Best Female Video and Best Storyline categories respectively.
