We will also need SUVs to transport the guards; then we'd need to fuel these SUVs; when we step out, we'd have to give out money to our fans as well and also, because we want to be early for the event, we hire a motorcade. When we calculate all the expenses, we spend no less than GH₵20k whenever we leave the house for any event."
