Veteran Ghanaian Gospel singer, Great Ampong has revealed that his recent hiatus from music has been as a result of financial difficulties.
The ‘Onyame Akatua’ hitmaker revealed that he didn’t have enough money to feed himself and his family as well as cover the cost of releasing new music. He added that the only money he had was what he used to run his home.
“Money is a factor, it is the reason I have not released a song in the past seven years. You spend about 700 million on a song now. The only money we had was for feeding and for housekeeping you can’t use that to record a song in a studio,” he said.
He added that he is ready to collaborate with any gospel musician however, the collabo will come with terms and conditions as a result of his part dealings with other artists.
“If the person comes with good terms I would cooperate because people have cheated me a lot,” he added.
Great Ampong has said that he is going to give his former associate, Daddy Lumba the biggest beef of the year following the latter’s diss song, ‘Ofon Na Edi Asem Fo’ which Ampong claims is directed at him.
