I think it is common knowledge that most entertainment industries across the world actualized massive development with the involvement of certain individuals who are involved in illegal activities, wanting to legitimize themselves. After watching an MTV documentary on the rise of Senegalese R&B star and producer, Akon I observed the phenomenon even further as the former car thief and his associates confessed to their past activities and revealed how they used those illegal monies to better their lives and that of their communities.
So I asked myself why Ghanaian ‘criminals’ haven’t considered pumping their illegal money through the entertainment industry. There’s a lot of investment that can be done in music, movies, television, events etc. So where are the cocaine dealers, fraudsters, car snatching syndicates etc?
