Ghana is yet to have the wealthiest manager in football.
“My investment in football will make me one of the richest artistes in Ghana in the next five to ten years.”
Hiplife artiste KK Fosu has self-proclaimed that the business of football management would give him the riches music could not give him.
The Hiplife artiste did not go ghost on Ghanaians to surprise Ghanaians with a comeback album, but rather a return to football management.
“I went outside the country. I went into football management. I manage footballers; I have footballers outside the country. I nurture them. I am doing some courses in football management. I have players in Europe, Asia. My investment in football will make me one of the richest artistes in Ghana in the next five to ten years. I started doing this in 2002. Ask Sly Tetteh, and he will testify. I kept this from the public eye”, KK Fosu made this known in an interview with Suncity Radio.
Most Ghanaian musicians are venturing into other businesses and testing their entrepreneurial skills.
The move from music to other areas of business has been attributed to musicians’ inability to stay consistent with producing hit songs, as music in Ghana does not give them sufficient income.
The list of artistes in the music industry who have veered in that direction includes, Samini, Tic Tac, Trigmatic, Hammer and Bandex.
Although K.K. Fosu he did not disclose the name of the players he is managing, the Six O’ Clock hitmaker has assured Ghanaians that his Asian and European players will be his most prized investment.
In 2013, K.K Fosu was a manager of Stars FC, a second division football team at Mamprobi in Accra.
