In an interview on EWITHBECKS show on Joy Prime, they said the misreading of their brand has affected the growth of the group negatively here in Ghana.
“We didn’t believe that people were that superstitious. We are evolving the brand gradually and have a duty to explain to people what the brand seeks to achieve,” the bandleader told Joy News’ Becky.
He explained one of the misconceptions that has affected the team greatly is that they are occultists.
