Fast-rising dancehall artiste J. Derobie believes sports betting is good and has saved many youths from engaging in armed robbery.

According to him, sports betting is a means of survival for many young men who could otherwise have been involved in other social vices. 

J. Derobie, born Derrick Obobbie Junior, is currently a brand ambassador for the betting company betPawa. He had an interview at Class FM in Accra and disclosed this. He said:

“Betting is good, betting is good. It has helped most of the youth, it has pushed some of them from stealing and all that,” he told Accra-based Class FM.

“You know, if it weren’t for betting, some [young] people would be on the streets stealing and robbing.

“So, the betting is good; that’s what I think”, he stressed.

Sports betting has often divided opinions among Ghanaians, with some quarters highlighting its effects on the youth.

Some also believe betting is legal and therefore cannot be described as a bad practice when no laws are broken.

Some weeks ago, GH One newscaster Serwaa Amihere came under fire for suggesting sports betting was becoming a national crisis.
