Hiplife musician, Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah better known as Tic (Tic Tac) has said he should be commended for being the only musician raised in Dansoman to have set up a business in the area.
According to him, instead of people making fun of him that he’s now into the sale of pork and turkey wings, people should rather celebrate him for being able to set up a chain of restaurants to employ people.
Dansoman popularly known as DC boasts of some of the biggest musicians in the country including Samini.
Speaking to host Moses Aluebasi on Ejura based Naagyei FM’s Entertainment show, Tic said he lambasted those who are mocking him.
“As for some Ghanaians, they are not able to tell things they way they actually are. They rather choose to say it in the negative way for it to become news. But I’m not bothered about what they say about my business. Everybody knows that I have chains of restaurant and I must rather be applauded for being a musician and having the business sense to set up such businesses which are successful and creating employment. You look at the US and musicians who are into business such as Jay Z are celebrated but in Ghana here we rather choose to mock them. When I’ve set up restuarants and have employed people I’m rather being teased that I’m selling pork and turkey wings. Ghanaians have a way of putting things out there so if we’ee fine with that as a people then that’s fine.”
On records, born Nana Kwaku Okyere Duah better known as Tic (Tic Tac) started performing in 1997 with a group called ‘Naatty strangers’. He reached a wider audience when he was featured on Azigiza’s song ‘Woye Bia’, which was a hit in Ghana.
He did a lot of collaborations with Slim Buster and Daasebre Gyamena of blessed memory. In 1999 Tic released his debut solo album, ‘Philomina’, which helped him to register his name on the lips of many Ghanaians. Currently, he’s out with a new single titled “Pene Mame” which features Kidi.
