Speaking in an interview on the Daybreak Hitz segment aired on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty, Naa Agyeman said that money shouldn’t be the only reason why people venture into the music game and definitely shouldn’t be the only thing they sing about.
However, Naa Agyeman stated that since money has become a necessity in all aspects of life, he wouldn’t exclude making it in all his dealings because he will never perform at an event for free.
He said that when he is booked for a show, he will definitely charge for his services since he has to exhaust his energy and time to entertain the people at the show.
“I never said I wouldn’t do music if money is involved. If you book me for an event, I will charge you. I wouldn’t perform for free. My point is, that money shouldn’t be the only reason or the message you sing about“, he said.
