Alleged charges of your favorite artiste for a 10-minute performance!

Information wɔ wiase oo!

Ever wondered how lucrative the music scene in Ghana is or how much you stand to earn from gaining a hit song and some level of relevance in the industry?

If yes, sit back, relax and let me fill you in!

Based on the curiosity of a YouTuber by name Mykel Derry, a fake email and profile was created and used as bait to get management of some top Ghanaian acts to reply with their budgets for a 10-15 minute performance.

The performance was to be at a falsely created private wedding ceremony of the daughter of one Dr. Kwabena Ofori Ntiamoah – COO of Buena Vista Homes Ltd.

The YouTuber forwarded the well-crafted e-mail to management of these artistes and this was their reply:
