Danso Abeam, the Ghanaian singer known for his massive hit ‘Ghanaian Lady’ (Belly Dancer) featuring Sarkodie, recently shared the reasons behind his decision to extend his stay in the United Kingdom and never return to Ghana after he was booked for a performance there.
In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, the talented musician explained that although he initially intended to work for a short period after his performance, he was pleasantly surprised by the substantial earnings he received within just one month of working in the UK.
Danso travelled to the United Kingdom in 2011, embarking on a new chapter in his life. Reflecting on his decision to stay in the UK, Danso disclosed that it was the £2000 salary that played a significant role. During his time there, he also delved into various aspects of life, including music.
“I came to perform at a charity show, but after that, I did one or two shows, including the Ghana Music Awards UK. I got a six-month visa, so I decided to stay and work for about four months.
“A friend of mine helped me get a job at Amazon. After I was paid the first month, I converted it to Ghana Cedis and said to myself I’m stuck here. I told those waiting on me in Ghana to wait,” he said.
