I will go back to fraud, ‘sakawa’ if you don’t support my music career – US Deportee Showboy tells Ghanaians


Popular Ghanaian musician and socialite, Sam Safo popularly known as Showboy, has vowed to revisit certain bad habits of the past if  he doesn’t receive the necessary attention and support from Ghanaians to succeed in the music industry.

In an interview with Adom FM, he indicated that before embarking on his music journey he resorted to money rituals, fraudulent activities and other negative vices in order to make ends meet.

However, he mentioned that finding a talent in music gave him hope, thus, created an avenue for him to escape from these bad habits.

According to him, he was stuck in them due to the  limited job opportunities in the country, as such, his music career is the best chance for a positive future.

He added that Ghanaians’ encouragement and backing will go a long way in determining the execution of his plan B. 

“I urge all Ghanaians to support my music journey because without it, I may be tempted to resort to fraudulent activities, money rituals, and other negative habits from my past. I’ve struggled with these vices before, and I don’t want to return to that dark path. With limited job opportunities in the country, my music career is my best chance for a positive future. Your support will determine whether I stay on this path or risk falling back into a life of crime, including armed robbery. Your encouragement and backing mean everything to me,” he added.

Showboy was sentenced to six years in prison in March 2019 for stabbing a US-based Ghanaian musician during a tussle.

Although the musician, Junior, survived the stabbing, he was later killed in a robbery attack in 2021. At the time of Junior’s death, many accused Showboy’s associates of being involved in the crime.

However, Showboy has since been released from prison. In a recent video shared on social media, he was seen on the shores of Ghana. Announcing his return on Instagram, the former AMG group co-founder posted a video of himself at the beach, performing a ritual cleanse.

“I am back to pay homage to all the gods and my ancestors. I am back,” he said.

In the caption accompanying his post, Showboy, who disclosed that his mental health has been affected by the entire ordeal, thanked everyone who stood by him.

“Thanks to Allah/God and our ancestors for everything!!! Shouts to all my dawgs /Families that held me down and never turned their back on me…shouts to all that tolerated my depression and sorry to all I offended !!! back for everything !! FINALLY FREE !!!” he retorted.
