Don’t blame musicians for the increase in Sakawa among the youth – Guru

Ghanaian Rapper Guru has fumed at those who blame the recent Kasoa ritual murder incidence on lavish lifestyles being displayed in music videos by musicians.


“When you see me in a music video riding a Porsche car what you should know is that Guru didn’t just wake up one day to enjoy all these luxuries. A tike came I used to do dry fasting when I visit Edumfa prayer camp,” he said.


Talking about what might have influenced the two teenagers to kill a small boy for sakawa during an interview with Nana Aba Anamoah, Guru said wealth displayed in music videos shouldn’t be the reason to engage in ritual murder.

He continued “I used to sleep and record in a studio every day including rap battles that we’ve done on Kasahari level and other shows. So, with all this hard work do you think God wouldn’t bless my works?

“When I display all this wealth in my music videos what it means is that you also have to do your best so that you achieve your dreams in life. Besides, where we are coming from, we were taught the fear of God,” he added.
