Ghanaian rapper Borax has regretted for not listening to his mentor, Daddy Lumba’s advise after their collaborated hit song “Asie Ho”.
The musician in an interview with Hitz FM’s MzGee disclosed that Lumba after their collaboration gave him huge sum of money but he used it in the wrong way. He said Daddy Lumba advised him to invest and buy land with the money but he did not listen to it.
The musician who started working with the legendary highlife artiste after senior high school disclosed that he bought expensive cars with the car not knowing things will be difficult for him in future.
“Lumba kept telling me to invest and buy land with the money he has given me because the land would appreciate in five or ten years time but I didn’t mind him.
In fact I was young by then but I did many hits with Lumba right after SHS. I bought three series BMW sports car, I was living large but I didn’t now a day like this will come.
It’s all good, it has actually thought me a lesson and I’ve learnt my lessons at this age.” Borax told MzGee.
Nat Adjetey Larbi musically known as Mr. Natty Borax’s journey to stardom in the musical industry has been challenging and successful to say the least. His route to the highest ranks of music started in a manner comparable to that of most currently hype hiplife artistes.
He started at school entertainment programs and then graduated to performing at national shows like kiddafest, Ecstasy (fantasy) etc. Appearances at such events that usually gathered the best artistes / rappers of his time highlighted his talent as an ambitious hip-life artiste. Borax’s first influential recording was titled ‘ahoafe hemaa’ on ‘Deeba’ where he was featured by one of Ghana’s hottest English rapping MC’S-Bazaar.
The single was an instant hit especially among the youth basically because of the funky tempo of the music and Bazaar’s mastery of the english rap. The reputation he achieved from the pop collaboration earned him respect in the industry.
His next major composition was with Charles Kojo Fosu a.k.a Daddy Lumba, one of his mentors in the musical industry, a track titled ‘Asie ho’.
