Ghanaian rapper, Kwame Nsiah-Apau, well-known as Okyeame Kwame, has defended the lifestyle of celebrities in the country.

Following the plea of Hajia4Real to guilty over her $2 million romance case, the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) has hinted at its decision to audit the lifestyle of celebrities and individuals suspected of possessing unjustifiable wealth.

“We are leading the charge by ourselves, making certain proposals for the amendment of the law to align with international standards. This ensures that any gaps in your financial profile are substantiated by your earnings.

“Any disparities must be clarified to law enforcement, and the burden of proof rests on the individual to explain the origin of those resources,” the head of Administration and Investigations at EOCO, Edward Cudjoe disclosed to JoyNews in an interview.
Responding to this, Okyeame Kwame argued that celebrities are not living lavish lifestyles like politicians.

“I have been in the celebrity space for 20 something years, I do not think they will find any artiste who are “criminals” or many celebs and film-makers because these people are suffering. It is very difficult to be in this industry as an influencer or artiste and then just by that be able to survive. I have not seen celebrities in Ferraris or Maybachs or Porsche cars or multimillion-dollar mansions. Where are they? Show me one.

“However, the people that I have seen living lavishly are politicians. I have seen civil servants who make maybe ₵14000 a month and driving S-class,” he told Berla Mundi on TV3’s New Day.

“They are going to start investigating celebrities and in less than 30 days, they will be done because it is obvious that there are no or very few celebrities who are enjoying unwarranted wealth,” Okyeame Kwame further stated.
