I Was Being Paid 10 Cedis After Singing At The Church Some Years Ago When My Music Career Started – Obaapa Christy Recalls
Ghanaian Gospel musician, Obaapa Christy, has recalled the meagre amount she got as payment some years ago.
After singing at the church, she recalled being paid 10 cedis.
According to her, the GHS 10 sometimes include torn GHS 1 notes.
Christy said this was at the time she started her music career.
“When I started singing at churches at the beginning of my career when nobody actually knew me, sometimes after performing it was difficult to be paid after the event.
“Sometimes I had to walk back home after performing at the church and that time I was paid with one cedi notes and I remember that very well,” she told Amansan Krakye on Property FM in Cape Coast.
Obaapa Christy further stated: “The church might have finished counting the money they got after the service and I was paid with the torn one cedi notes which was about 10cedis.”
In the report Newshuntermag.com came across, the famous Ghanaian Gospel musician indicated how she survived.
“After I’m paid with the 10 cedis I used some of the money to buy food to quench my hunger and after I had to walk back the distance to wherever I came from which was very hectic.”
