“Everybody wants to have money. You travel to Dubai, America to chill, buy cars and designer clothes. I hardly buy designer clothes and I have never owned more than three cars in my life.” D-Black disclosed on GH One TV

He disclosed that disciplining oneself makes a business-minded person achieve his dreams.

“You have to be disciplined to be able to achieve your dreams. When I make money, I don’t blow it. I always invest about 70 or 80 per cent of the money I make. So let me give a brief on how I started. I took the money I made as a musician when I started and invested it in an event and advertising company. So I started shooting commercials, started doing concerts and shows.

The money I made from there, I invested it into building a night club, the money I made from the club after a year, I invested it in a lounge; Oasis. The money I made from Oasis after a year, I started a record label with that. So I have planned and try to stick to it,” he said.” D-Black added
