Talented Ghanaian singer, Ethel Eshun, widely known as eShun, has disclosed that UK-based Ghanaian artiste, Fuse ODG, handed her a ‘bad' contract regarding their yet-to-be-released project.
Fuse ODG speaking recently on Accra-based Hitz FM revealed that he is embarking on an ambitious project to help young Ghanaian artistes cross borders with their music.
As a result, he [Fuse ODG], has invited musicians such as eShun, Feli Nuna and Selassie onto his project but they have failed to sign the final contract to outdoor their songs.
“I wanna create a platform for other countries to listen to Ghanaian music. The idea is to have a different artiste on a song. I don’t know about [Eshun not happy with the contract]. She told me her lawyer has to go through it and they get back to me”, he said.
But the Ghanaian songstress telling her side of the story on same platform on Monday revealed that Fuse ODG gave them a “bad” contract to sign.
“It was a bad contract and I’m not the only one. Feli Nuna hasn’t signed hers. And from the last time I spoke with Selassie, she also had issues with the contract. So we told him [Fuse] it isn’t right so we asked that some changes are done”, eShun said.
Meanwhile, manager of eShun in an interview has labelled the contract as a “funny” one, insisting that Fuse ODG would be awarded all the credits to the song should the ladies go ahead to sign the deal.
“Obviously she [eShun] is being taken for granted. If the song has the potential of bringing revenue and saying all the risk is on you so you take the credit, it doesn’t make sense. If you tell me the risks are on you. I think that in Ghana we need to respect upcoming artists”, eShun’s manager told the host.
The manager further urged Fuse ODG to amend the contract since it doesn’t have to benefit an individual but both parties.
“The potential of the song is about 120 million pounds. It’s gonna be played at a place where systems work. It’s about 37 pounds per play. I have the belief that Fuse has his mind in the right place. It should benefit all of us and not one person”, he added.
