- Bullet, the manager of late singer Ebony, has revealed that fans will be charged ¢10 as gate fee at late musician’s tribute concert
- He noted that the fee will cover the cost of the concert and some for the Ebony Foundation
The tribute concert to be organized in honour of the late Ebony Reigns has encountered a setback after some artistes reportedly rejected to perform for free.
This was revealed by manager of the late dancehall singer, Bullet.
In a Facebook post, Bullet said some artistes have asked to be paid before they grace the tribute concert.
He described such musicians as hypocrites, insisting that is not the right way to support a departed colleague in the industry.
He, however, refused to mention the names of the artistes who demanded for money before performing at the show.
According to him, their names will be released to the public after Ebony’s funeral.
“I don’t want to mention names now. I will do that after the show and the funeral…,” he said.
Meanwhile, the artiste manager has also confirmed that fans will be charged ¢10 as gate fee at late musician’s tribute concert.
Speaking on the Daybreak Hitz show on Hitz FM, Bullet said the proceeds from the concert will go a special foundation set up for accident victims.
Ebony’s tribute is being organized by a collaborative effort between Ruff Town Entertainment, the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA), Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture and Kasapreko Company Limited.
The concert is scheduled for Friday, March 23, with the likes of Becca, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, VIP, R2Bees, Edem, Shatta Wale, Kofi Kinaata and Efya all billed to perform.
