Legendary Highlife musician, Pat Thomas has revealed that if not for an enlightenment from rapper Sarkodie, he would have lost thousands of dollars to fraudsters.
Kwabena Nyamekye Amoo-Mensah as he’s known in real life said he never knew there were money making avenues on social media and on the internet using his songs.
So some fraudsters were using his content to make thousands of dollars unknown to him.
He stated that it was Sarkodie who coached and made him realise.
“One time when Sarkodie had come from the US, we met and he was asking Uncle a whole lot of your songs are on Spotify but do you get the money? I said no, and he said then someone must be cashing out your money. He was talking about the amount in thousands of dollars”. Pat Thomas revealed on Kumasi-based Pure FM in an interview monitored by MyNewsGH.com.
“Even those of us who just started are getting huge sums of money and not you who started many years ago”, Pat Thomas quoted Sarkodie.
According to Pat Thomas, with the help of Sarkodie, he has been able to secure all songs people have posted on various online platforms and he is making thousands of Dollars from that.
