- Yaa Pono has waded into ongoing allegations surrounding Ebony’s tribute concert
- According to the rapper, he was not consulted before his image was added to the poster
Rapper Yaa Pono, has opened up on some trending issues concerning a concert which has beenput up by the managers of late dancehall act, Priscilla Opoku-Kwarteng, popularly known as Ebony Reigns.
According to a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Yaa Pono, is reported to have been taken aback after he saw his picture among the artistes billed to perform at the March 23 concert in memory of Ebony Reigns.
The post went on to state that Yaa Pono reached out to Ebony’s manager to inquire why his image was used on the said poster without prior permission from him.
The altercation between Yaa Pono and RuffTown Records is reported to have been the reason for Bullet’s Facebook post alleging that some artistes demanded payment for their services at the March 23 concert.
It has also come to light that reports claiming that Shatta Wale was demanding money from RuffTown Records were not true because according to the post, there appears to be some bad blood between Shatta Wale and Bullet’s outfit.
The concert was put together by Ebony’s record label, RuffTown Records and Midas Touch Inc. in collaboration with the Musicians Union of Ghana, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts & Culture and Kasapreko Company Limited.
The poster that was released some days ago pictured many artistes on it. According to the organizers, attendees would be charged 10 cedis to participate.
