Africa is rich in natural resources, culture and in its people – Jay Ghartey

It takes some artistes donkey years to explain whatever they sing out

to their fans.

Quiet some few months, after releasing the hit

RnB single "Love You Better" featuring Ugandan

songbird Juliana Kanyomozi, Jay Ghartey released

another hit Afro pop titled "African Money"

featuring Ghana's finest EL and AJ Omo Alajah.

"African Money" has been embraced by

thousands of African, European and American

music lovers. But the questions are; What does

African Money mean? What is the concept

behind African Money? What message does it

carry across to the listeners?

Over the weekend, Jay Ghartey decided to

explain these questions to his listeners and fans.

This is what he has to say in an unedited

transcript he released.

"You see Africa is rich in natural resources,

culture and in its people and the rest of the

world and Africans themselves must be

reminded of this and we must continue to set

the facts straight.

When I was young in the U.S.A and I told people

I was an African. They immediately thought I

came from a poor country. Even though I did

not show my feelings, I felt bad and it pained


But 20 years later things have changed in the

world and slowly people are now starting to

have more respect for Africa. They know we are

hardworking and educated and ready to move on

things. It's a new revolution and I'm calling it

"African Money". It's also a swag and state of

mind, never giving up, having pride and to walk

with the mentality of "African Money".
