Sarkodie is a clever individual because, unlike his peers, he spent his first large music money on an asset rather than liquor and girls; an activity worth imitating.
Sarkodie said in an exclusive interview with Pulse Kenya that he utilized his first big money to buy land.
When asked about his career and how he got his first big money, the Ghanaian rapper stated it came from a gig and that he invested all in a piece of property.
According to his own words:
I remember my first paycheque and it was from a show. Funny enough, it was a tough decision for someone who has been hustling for a while and I had to treat myself. I got a piece of land. Literally the whole money for a land,” he said in the interview.
the area has fast developed now but I still have my spot there. It’s a nice cute land with fly houses around it. The only thing is that the place is far away from me because everything I’m currently working on is close to me. Although the land is far from me, it’s still worth a lot now.
Sarkodie explained that he likes not to buy a lot of cars because he prefers to invest his money in things that will eventually return more money of what he invested.
I don’t like spending money on cars. If I get a decent good car that stands the test of time, I could use it but I feel it’s not worth it. Financially, it doesn’t make sense. I don’t have many cars and if I want to get one, I want the type that regardless of time it will still look new
“I think a lot before I make a purchase. I’m the type who always want to make sure I don’t go broke
Sarkodie is now on a promotional tour around Africa for his new album, “No Pressure.” Last week, he was in Nigeria, and today he’s in Kenya.
