Ace choreographer and musician, Slim Buster, has for some few years been out of the country and missing in the Ghanian entertainment circles. His fans, especially on social media, who could not keep up with his absence started asking questions of his whereabouts.
In an interview with Sammy Flex, host of AM Pluzz on Pluzz 89.9FM, Slim Buster stated that he left Ghana for the UK, where he stayed for quite awhile – because he could not bear the pressure of the power outages (Dumsor) that hit the country a few years ago.
He added that the cost of fueling his cars, home, studio and power plant was becoming unbearable and money-consuming.
He was therefore left with no other option than to seek greener pastures overseas.
Ebenezer Asare (Slim Buster) entered the Ghanaian music industry in 1986, after he won the 1986 National Dance Championship competition. He later left the shores of Ghana for UK, to study music and sound engineering.
On his return to Ghana, Slim Buster decided take up music as a full time job and established his own recording studio at Darkuman in Accra.
In 2000, Slim released the album, ‘Masanaba’, which was an instant hit. He followed it with ‘Eye Fe Keke’ in 2001, which featured the hit track, ‘Mina’.
In 2002, he came out with Baby, which won an award for best video, at the 2002 Ghana Music Awards.
