BET Awards winner Sarkodie and Dynamic duo R2Bees who have been billed to perform alongside Pan Africa group P-Square, for the Malta Guinness sponsored âTop of the World Celebrationâ concert, have threatened to pull out of the show if organizers do not pay them $20, 000 and $10, 000 respectively.
According to Peacefmonline.com investigations, they both agreed to take GHÂ˘20,000 and GHÂ˘10,000 initially, but they later came back to tell Charter House, the organizers, that they meant $20,000 and $10,000.
As at the time of going to pres they were still insisting on being paid the amount of $20,000 and $10,000 respectively, or they would not mount the stage today.
Peacefmonline.com reported that Tema-based Sarkodie and R2Bees had the sudden change of mind when they heard that the Nigerian duo P-Square, charged about $200,000 to perform on the show.
Peacefmonline.com is reliably informed that organizers are not ready to pay the Ghanaian artistes that much so they may order all media houses to hold on with all commercials of the event which has names of the two artistes whiles they look for other artistes to replace them, if they are not able to come to an agreement with the two artistes by end of today.
The two Ghanaian artistes were conspicuously missing at Excel Night Club on Wednesday night during the press soiree for the event scheduled to take place at the Independence Square in Accra.
The headline act Peter and Paul Okoye of P-Square, were present to interact with the press and to assure the fans that they are indeed in town ahead of the big day.
Investigations revealed that Sarkodie gave organizers prior notice of his absence because he was on location in the Eastern region shooting a new music video the same time the press soiree was going on.
