The absence of Ghana’s fast-rising trap lord, Black Sherif, at the Ghana Party in the Park UK has been purported to be due to a misunderstanding arising from performance fees.
Initially, Blacko’s no-show was reported to have been because the timing of the popular concert was not favourable. Robert Klah, VGMA PRO, relayed this information whilst being interviewed on HitzFM.
He said, “As part of the VGMA ‘Best New Artiste of the Year’ package, the Ghanaian trap star was supposed to perform at the #GhanaPartyInThePark. Unfortunately, that couldn’t happen because the timing wasn’t favourable for Blacko’s team.”
But according to a tweet from HitzFM, an insider has debunked the political statement. They revealed that Blacko’s team demanded almost half a million Ghana cedis from the London show’s organisers.
HitzFM tweeted, “According to an anonymous source [a member of the Akwaaba UK group], the group proposed an amount of £10,000 (GHS 97,786) as Black Sherif’s performance fee for the Ghana Party in the Park event. However, Blacko’s team was demanding £50,000 (GHS 489,387).”
This has caused a riot on Twitter, with many bashing Black Sherif’s management teams for sabotaging the artiste.
