The declaration by the Economic and Organised Crime Office (EOCO) about auditing the lifestyles of celebrities and other people has prompted a response from Ghanaian artist Okyeame Kwame.

Hajia4Real made this decision after she acknowledged her involvement in a $2 million romance scam. EOCO declared their plan to examine the lives of celebrities and anyone who might have gained fortune through unethical ways.

“We are spearheading the effort on our own, putting up specific recommendations to modify the legislation in order to bring it into compliance with global norms. This guarantees that any discrepancies in your financial profile are supported by your income.

“Discrepancies must be explained to law enforcement, and it is the individual’s responsibility to provide an explanation for the source of those resources,” EOCO’s head of administration and investigations, Edward Cudjoe, told JoyNews in an interview.

In response, Okyeame Kwame stated that celebrities do not lead extravagant lives like politicians do.

“I have been in the celebrity space for 20 something years, I do not think they will find any artiste who are ‘criminals’ or many celebs and film makers because these people are suffering.

“It is very difficult to be in this industry as an influencer or artiste and then just by that be able to survive. I have not seen celebrities in Ferraris or Maybachs or Porsche cars or multimillion dollar mansions. Where are they? Show me one.

“However, the people that I have seen living lavishly are politicians. I have seen civil servants who make maybe ₵14000 a month and driving S-class,” he told Berla Mundi on TV3’s New Day.

“They are going to start investigating celebrities and in less than 30 days, they will be done because it is obvious that there are no or very few celebrities who are enjoying unwarranted wealth,” Okyeame Kwame added.
