Popular Ghanaian musician, Kofi Kinaata has responded to Bishop Dag Heward-Mills’ advice to the youth on betting.
Not long ago, the leader of United Denomination asserted that the youth will be poor if they do not stop betting.
He made this comment after he shared his betting experience.
However, the ‘Confession’ composer disagreed during an interview with Amansan Krakye on Kastle FM.
“Amansan Krakye by the time we finish this interview, I’m very sure that you’d have ended up giving me problems. Proverbially it is said that what the elderly sees whilst sitting, the young cannot see even if they’re standing.
“So probably it depends on what he has seen that’s why he’s advising the youth to stay away from sports betting because he’s been in this world for a long time. However, it is two-sided when it comes to sports betting,” he stated.
“There are some people who were also wallowing in abject poverty but through staking a sports bet they won and have suddenly become billionaires. So does it mean their riches from sports betting is a misfortune.
“There are some people who get their daily wage from betting. So the same betting that he claims can make people poor has also made some people filthy rich,” Kofi Kinaata further stated.
