Ghanaian disc jockey and presenter, Andrew Akwasi Amoh popularly known as Andy Dosty has spoken about his early-day fortunes in broadcasting.
He told Agyemang Prempeh in an interview on ‘Legends’ on TV XYZ that he got money through radio and his work as a DJ but he did not handle it well.
“I’ve had a lot of money but I didn’t manage it well. I got money at a very young age,” he said.
He also said in the interview monitored by ghanaweekend.com that he was so hardworking that he could play gigs for three night clubs in a day.
According to him, even though he did not earn so much for individual gigs, playing at multiple places earned him more money.
Asked what happened to the money he earned, the Hitz FM presenter said: “I couldn’t save it. I spent it on things like clothes and cars.”
He added that his mother advised him to build a house but he told her he would rather buy one than build from the scratch.
“When you are young, you don’t get to really understand the vagaries of life. I thought I would always have money,” he further noted.
Andy Dosty said, at the time, he was lucky to have been one of the presenters who got poached in the radio business.
Andy, currently the host of Daybreak Hitz on Accra-based Hitz FM, has also worked at OTEC FM, Hello FM and Angel FM (all in Kumasi).
