Womanising, Alcoholism and hard drugs got most older musicians broke- Bob Pinodo


Bob Pinodo a Ghanaian veteran highlife musician who has toured the world with very successful albums has revealed why most older musicians get broke in their retirement age.

Responding to a question asked by Ohemaa Woyeje on “Yadwuma Nie” why most legendary musicians from his era ends up poor with some begging for alms from the public , Bob Pinodo had this to say,

“Most of them did not take music as their business so they did not plan, they indulged in womanising, alcoholism and hard drugs therefore were unable to make investments for their future ” he stated.

In recent times we have witnessed how some great legends die in our music sector and the creative arts sector as whole due to lack of funds to take proper care of their health and basic needs, some do come out publicly to beg for help which comes as a worry comparing the amount of works they have done and how they end up in thier retirement age.

Bob Pinodo was honured at the recently held Vodafone Ghana Music Awards with a lifetime Achievement Award.
