The music business is next to the cocaine business in reference to the money involved in these businesses. However, a bunch of our veteran artistes are swimming in ardent poverty for obvious reasons.
But from the look of things, the current crop of our musicians are gradually changing the status quo and narrative considering their charges per show.
According to Nhyira FM’s Ruthy on the “Entertainment Power” show, the current crop of artistes in Ghana especially Sarkodie are benefiting from the sweat and influence of Shatta Wale as he set the pace.
To her best knowledge, Sarkodie now charges 100,000ghc per show because of Shatta Wale’s influence.
“Shatta Wale is one person who paved the way for Sarkodie, Stonebwoy and co. to say they will charge 100,000ghc per show. So, aside from his bad character, Ghanaians should know that Shatta Wale has really done a lot to help our music industry…”, Ruthy said.
