One Of the leading hip pop artistes in Upper west has kicked against negative reactions of the public on the recently introduced “Soccerbet” And “Safaribet” in the region that has got the youth very busy in it.

Many say it is time consuming and others say because it is a form of lottery it drains money and is not right, Islamic religious personalities also say it is forbidden by the Qur’an and that people should desist from it if they want to make heaven.

LowBal Said ” well, we all know it is lottery but once their action doesn’t affect others I don’t see it being offensive, even politicians  play lottery although they are role models to be emulated but that hasn’t brought Ghana Down, Some of These young guys playing these games used to be idling on the streets flirting and chasing after girls others also went around stealing but I think with this game introduced as a medium of income most of these have stopped, why don’t we acknowledge the positive aspect as well, it overweighs the negative”

LowBal is a member of Ghanaguyz music group and has featured in several song including Started From The Buttom By D13.
