However, the whereabouts of the musician has been questioned by fans after the show ended.

According to VGMA PRO, Robert Klah, per the terms of the contract between Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) and Akwaaba UK, the winner of the VGMA23 'Best New Artiste of the Year' package, Black Sherif was billed to perform at #GhanaPartyInThePark.

Unfortunately, Mr Klah said that couldn't happen because, according to Black Sherif's team, the timing was not right, even though they were already in the UK.

Burna Boy Says He Has Made More Money From 'Last last' Than Any Other Song

Grammy award-winning Nigerian musician, Burna Boy, has disclosed that more money has been generated from his hit song, 'Last Last' than any other song he has ever released in his music career.

This comes at the back of Burna Boy disclosing in a previous interview two weeks ago that he sampled Toni Braxton's 2002 ‘He Wasnt man Enough For Me’ hit song.

He also stated that Tony Braxton is receiving 60 per cent of the royalties from online streaming platforms, with Atlantic taking 30 per cent, and Burna Boy receiving the remaining 10 per cent. However, in a recent interview on Kick Game UK, he made some clarifications on the statements he made earlier.
