Shatta Wale accuses Organisers of Ghana Party in the Park of breach of agreement
Reggae/dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale has debunked claims that he made a monetary demands at the eleventh hour of the Ghana Party in the Park yearly event, which was held in London on Saturday, July 16, 2022.
The musician, explained that organisers of the event breeched the contract, hence the reason he did not perform at the festival.
“I wanted it to be a GOG in conjunction with Akwaaba UK. So the whole title was going to be ‘Akwaaba UK in conjunction with Shatta Movement GOG experience’ and we accepted that.”
“Secondly, I told the organisers that they should try and get visas for my team. My team is big, but we came to a conclusion where I could just take four along with me, and we agreed on that too but the Akwaaba team failed to fulfill their end of the bargain, ” he explained.
Shatta Wale noted that the event was laudable since it helps musicians to spread their tentacles and reach out to fans on the international market.
“What I told the organisers basically and vividly was that it’s time we Ghanaians start supporting our industry gatekeepers and coaches,” he added.
Aside him, Fante rapper turned singer, Kofi Kinaata also did not perform at the event.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Akwaaba Group, organisers of the annual festival, Dennis Tawiah has allegedly explained that the “On God” hit maker made some monetary demands at the eleventh hour, which could not be met by his team at the time.
He indicated that Kofi Kinaata was also unable to fulfill some obligations to facilitate his trip to London in time for the show.
However, his outfit has issued a statement demanding the public to forgive them for the inconvenience created that led patrons to be unsatisfied and promised to go back to the slate and give better experience the next year to come.
