I’ll Go Back To Robbery If Ghanaians Don’t Support My Music – Showboy


Ghanaian musician Samuel Kwabena Sarfo popularly known as Showboy has made a terrifying declaration, that he might return to armed robbery or fraud if he does not receive adequate support for his music career.

The artist’s comment has shocked many and sparked a heated discussion about the struggles faced by musicians in Ghana.

In a recent interview on Adom FM, Showboy said his music career, ever since he returned to Ghana after his deportation from America, has been good so far but needs more support.

“I want Ghanaians to support my music because if you don’t support me, I will go and do fraud, I don’t want to do that again. When I was young, I learnt fraud and a lot of bad things, including armed robbery. If music doesn’t work for me, I’ll return to all that,” he said.

When the presenter inquired about his past, he responded, “Certainly, I’ve had my share of experiences. I’ve been a kleptomaniac. People often come here and deceive you, don’t they? But I choose to be honest, to share my truth.”

In the video below, Showboy emphasized that “in Ghana, there is no work here and the way I have been exposed to money, I wouldn’t have any other option.”

The musician who has been nursing a music career was jailed in the U.S in 2019 over a case in which he stabbed a friend during a fight.

According to the rapper formally associated to Criss Waddle’s AMG Business clan, he stabbed one said Junior US, who is said to be a close friend of Shatta Wale, out of self-defence during a fierce fight.

After the final hearing of his case, a U.S court sentenced him to 6 years in prison. Showboy finished serving his sentence and has been reportedly deported to Ghana.
