Ghanaian singer Black Sherif has reportedly turned down £10K as a fee for a performance at the Ghana Party in the Park show in the UK.
According to one of the organisers of the show, Akwaaba UK Group, Black Sherf’s camp rejected the performance for £10K.
He said that the “Kweku Traveller” hitmaker had said he would only mount the stage to perform if the money was increased from £10K to £50K.
According to the report, Black Sherif’s managers insisted that their artist was worth more than a paltry £10K (9 GHS 97,786) for a show in the UK, so it should be increased to £50K (GHS 489,387).
Many fans have reacted to the news, which was first broken by Hitz FM. Fans believe Black Sherif should have accepted the initial fee.
Many believe he is not worth the second amount since the top artists do not even charge such amounts for shows.
How much will Sarkodie even charge?
