The multi-award-winning musician Kwesi Arthur, better known by his stage name DJ Azoto, has stated that, given how profitable blogging is, he would like to give up music.
He revealed that renowned Ghanaian blogger Zionfelix uses the money he earns from blogging to buy a house in London, but he is unable to even consider doing the same with his music earnings.
The artist also asserted that, because of the popularity of their work in recent years, bloggers now make significantly more money than musicians do.
Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM, which was monitored by 1Family Radio, DJ Azonto said that Zionfelix’s blog income has allowed him to purchase a home in London, UK.
“I want to become a blogger, and next year I’m going to quit music and become a blogger. Because bloggers are making more money than musicians,’’ DJ Azonto said.
“I can boldly say that Zionfelix is richer than all artists in Ghana. I’m sorry to release this secret, but Zionfelix has a house in London,’’ he revealed.
He recounted how he had inquired about a house in London and that as soon as Zionfelix learned of the specifics of the sale, he had moved swiftly to secure the property.
“I went to inquire about a house in London, and they were demanding the money so soon. So I told Zionfelix, and he said he would make payment on Monday, and he did.’’
“So I’m happy for him because he has just bought a house in London. There is a difference between truth and gossip, and this is the truth,’’ he said.
