Speaking to his fans via his verified Twitter account, the singer noted that although he is the highest-paid artiste in the history of African music, money no longer satisfies him.
He said, At this point, I just want to LIVE and DIE on STAGE with my Band The OUTSIDERS. I’ve achieved All the dreams I ever personally had. Money gives me No satisfaction, nothing really does, except being On STAGE with my God sent band.
“I thank God and the world for giving me This. I just wish the world would leave me out of all politics and just let/watch me perform till I Die. The only time my heart feels genuine peace is On stage and that’s where I want to live and Die.
I said money doesn’t satisfy me and it’s my Truth but it Doesn’t change the fact that I’m the highest paid artist in the History of African music. Believe it or not.
