Ghanaians complaining of hardship today – Lucky Mensah

Veteran highlife artiste, Lucky Mensah has labelled those complaining of hardship in Akufo Addo’s era as haters.

Lucky said in an interview monitored by on Zylofon FM that, Nana Addo has done tremendously well in his short term as a president.

He emphasized that those who are not seeing the good things of the current president are from the opposition.

According to him, the opposition will never see the good things that their opponent has done.

He dilated in nation-building, people should be patriotic and support good initiatives and give praises when necessary.

Lucky Mensah, who has remade a song eulogizing President Akufo Addo, hold the view that he has performed extremely well and deserves another term.

He reiterated the Free SHS policy has eased the burdens of many parents in the country.

The improvement on the National Health Insurance Scheme, revamping railways and others make him a great leader, according to the highlife musician.

He argued that it is wrong for people to compare President Akufo Addo’s short term to Ex-President John Dramani Mahama’s eight (8) years rule.


Most Musicians End Up Poor Because Of Pride – Lucky Mensah

High Life legend, Lucky Mensah has stated that, most Ghanaian musicians are poor because of pride.

The ‘Old School’ singer, asserted that only a few artistes (the well-established ones or those whose songs are popular now) are raking in the big bucks with the rest struggling to get by.

He adds that, stakeholders are trying to find ways to eliminate the challenges that musicians are facing alright. And  some musicians are also striving to find other ways to survive. However, from his perspective, many musicians are not well off financially because they are too proud to do other jobs.

According to the Old School singer, a lot of musicians feel too big to take up other ventures because of the fame they enjoy. For him, in spite of his status, he is willing to do any business that will help him put food on the table for his family.

“I currently bake bread in my house and take it out for distribution. How many of our musicians or actors can do that.

“ Most of them feel so big to do any work apart from what they are known for but hey, if I need to bake bread or go fishing just to put food on the table, I have no problem at all,” he told Showbiz on Monday.

Lucky Mensah said he is not too sympathetic of poor musicians because he believes their situation is their own doing.This, to him is simply due to the fact that refused to use fame to their advantage.

He stated that there are a lot of musicians who had more money than him during their hey days. But they broke now because of mismanagement of their finances and failing to do any other jobs.

“It saddens my heart when I see my colleagues begging for money on radio from individuals or the government and I wish musicians will take my advice and make hay while the sun shines,” he said.

Lucky Mensah is the author of popular songs like Wo Te Akoma, Agooji, Wope A Hwe, Brofre Nie, Aduu Sumo Akwadu, Bottom Of My Heart, I Miss You, Nkratuo among others. However, he has been dormant in the industry for a while now. But he revealed he will be coming with a bang by the end of the year.

Although he says he took a hiatus to focus on other money making ventures, Lucky Mensah blamed radio presenters for trying to kill Highlife music.

“Radio presenters were reluctant in pushing my last album and I can boldly say that made me take that long break. These same radio presenters will play songs from Nigeria and reject theirs because you don’t grease their palms,” he said.

Another thing Lucky Mensah is not happy about is how radio presenters retire musicians. “Radio presenters prefer to push the new generation than the older ones. We old musicians struggle a lot when we release a song and we need promotion,” he added.
