Ghanaian singer Gyakie has revealed that artistes ho performed at the Global Citiizen Festival in Accra were not paid for their performances.
The festival was held at the Black Star Square in Accra on 24th September and saw performances from American singers SZA and Usher, UK rapper, Stormzy, Nigerian singer Tems and Ghanaian artistes including Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and Gyakie.
Looking at the magnitude of the festival and the resources that went into it, many assumed it was a harvest season for artistes that were involved.
But Gyakie has refuted all these rumors. The singer said they were not paid to perform.
She said their acceptance to perform for the Global Citizen initiative was more about their belief in the cause and not the money.
Gyakie however admitted that they didn’t perform at their loss.
She explained that investments were made in the performance of every artiste that was on stage to make them comfortable.
