While people continue to criticise Hiplife artiste, Patapaa for either his looks or his songs, the young man keeps soaring as he tells Showbiz that his most popular song, ‘One Corner’ has made him a lot of money.
“I have been able to buy a land and build a four-bedroom house in Swedru with just a single song and I thank God for that,” he told Showbiz recently.
According to him, he had a lot of gigs with ‘One Corner’ and the money was good. “I was invited to Belgium, Germany, France, Australia, UK and other countries to perform the ‘One Corner’ song to my fans,” he said.
Patapaa revealed that he never dreamt ‘One Corner’ could take him this far adding that musicians could be rich if they played their cards well.
“If I have been able to build a house with just a single song then musicians who have countless hit songs should never complain that they are poor,” he said.
Another thing that Patapaa believes is working for him is his stagecraft which many people have applauded him for. He said he usually gets good responses whenever he performs and that was evident when he mounted the ‘Ghana Meets Naija’ stage this year.
“I put in my all when I mount any stage to perform and I am now learning how to perform with a live band to move my performance to the next level,” he disclosed.
Although many people tipped him to win Most Popular Song with One Corner at the ‘Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA)’ which he lost to Fancy Gadam, Patapaa said he was glad he finally won the Most Popular Song at the just recently-held ‘Ghana Music Awards UK’.
Patapaa who is currently promoting his new song ‘Suro Nipa’ said he has been booked from now till December for shows both in Ghana and outside.
He stated that he plans to work with musicians like Edem, Pope Skinny and Eno.
