Few days ago, outspoken Artiste Manager/Showbiz Pundit, Bullgod (Nana Asiamah Hanson), has also proposed to Government to stop investing in football and rather divert such funds to the music and hospitality sector.
Sharing a Facebook post over the Black Stars’ poor performance at the AFCON, he expressed distaste for the government’s investment in football.
Bullgod, wrote “It’s about time we stop wasting our taxes on sports especially football — and invest solely in our music and hospitality sector.”
He argued that “all the applause and accolades Ghana has out there in the world presently is owed to our entertainment and tourism industry. Hospitality and entertainment is a high earner and healthy contributor to the country’s GDP”.
