Dancehall act Shatta Wale has disclosed on Showbiz 360 that he has made about $320,000 from performance fees from shows in Ghana.
Shatta Wale revealed that Afro Nation and the team that brought Cardi B to Ghana each paid him $100,000 as a performance fee. He also said he did not perform at Cardi B’s concert in Ghana because the organisers broke the contract.
“I am the only artiste in Ghana that has been able to charge shows $100,000 three times in a row. And I won’t lie. The first Afro Nation show that they did in Ghana, the first time, they paid me $100,000 cash.
“Cardi B’s show that was held in Ghana, I was paid another $100,000. I took the money and didn’t go because they violated the contract. That’s what happened because it was a nice agreement.”
Shatta Wale also revealed that he did not perform after Sadiq Abu, formerly of 3Music, paid him $120,000 because they also breached their contract.
“Sadiq’s Wildaland, I got paid $120,000. If the other artsites want to know, I want to tell them. So if I tell somebody that I’ve been able to make $300,000 from shows in Ghana, they will think I’m bragging.”
