According to the management of the group, soon after the issue was discussed on Akwasi Aboagye’s programme, Entertainment Review on Peace FM a couple of weeks back, they quickly issued a cheque for GH¢ 3.500 to Akwasi Aboagye to be paid to Ghana Base, but when the cheque was sent to the management of Ghana Base, they refused to collect it.
It would be recalled that Praye was paid 70 percent of GH¢5000 to perform alongside Daddy Lumba in a concert dubbed “United For Peace Concert” on December 24 last year, but they could not perform as agreed.
Reacting to a publication on the BEATWAVES page of DAILY GUIDE captioned “Pay The Money-Praye Told”, the manager of Praye, Kiki Banson of EKB Records told BEATWAVES that he was shocked to hear that the management of Ghana Base refused to accept the money after crying wolf that Praye had not paid the money.
He said Ghana Base Management’s refusal to collect the cheque from Akwasi Aboagye was a calculated attempt to tarnish the hard-earned reputation of the group.
He argued that since the group could not honour the show, it was its duty to refund the money paid to it and “that was exactly what we did but the management of Ghana Base refused to accept it”.
A number of hiplife artistes who are not happy with the fracas between Ghana Base and Praye yesterday called for a cease fire, and also apologized to members of Praye for making disparaging remarks about them.
A source close to Ghana Base Management told BEATWAVES that since the case was being handled by the company’s lawyers, Praye should send the money or cheque to the lawyers.
The source said on December 24 last year, Ghana Base was not informed about Praye’s inability to appear on the show, adding that music fans who attended to show and were expecting Praye to perform on stage left the venue disappointed because Praye didn’t show up.
