Ghanaian rapper Medikal has insisted that being paid for shows does not mean he will tolerate disrespect, asserting his autonomy over where and when he chooses to perform.
In an interview with Accra-based Bryt TV, the "Omo Ada" hitmaker emphasized he is selective about show invitations, stating "If I don't feel like it, I won't come. I choose to go to where I want to go to."
While admitting payment is a consideration, Medikal clarified "But I let people know that you can't disrespect me just because you’ve paid me, I choose to come when I want to."
He said "I'm not just selling music, I am selling a lifestyle. I want you to understand that I have money. I am not just a regular rapper."
According to the renowned rapper, his success stems from building a solid foundation over the years through hard work rather than just focusing on music sales alone.
