The rapper admitted that despite his fame, he is also having a difficult time in an interview on Joy FM’s Showbiz A to Z program over the weekend.
He admitted to host George Quaye that he “wouldn’t be able to have my hands on everything” since, “thank God, we have moved from a point when our difficulties may not necessarily be like the normal guy on the street.”
“If me, I may have a certain degree of trouble in some areas; it’s not hardship (per se), but it was a big shock, fuel costs are out of control.” I am currently approaching 2,000 cedis to fill up my automobile, which is a significant amount.
“You need about 2,000 cedis to be able to run around three days,” he lamented. Sarkodie has been on a media tour for some days promoting his Jamz Album which has been receiving massive digital success.
Ghana’s declining economy has been in the news for some months. The nation’s present administration has been forced to allay the rising fear among its inhabitants as a result of the country’s extreme slump and scant economic comeback.
In order to strengthen the economy and lessen the burden on common Ghanaians, the administration is attempting to strike an agreement with the International Monetary Fund, or IMF.
For failing to handle the nation’s present economic problems, the current government has come under intense criticism.
Bloomberg tracks 148 different currencies, and the Ghana cedi, which has declined by about 50% so far in 2022, has surpassed the rupee as the worst currency in the world.
